Description Of Issue
I’ve just recently discovered a problem whilst attempting to upsample to 176.4kHz. For the Squeezebox Touch system in the DSP settings, I set all files to upsample either to 176.4kHz or 192kHz in appropriate multiples. I attempted to play a 16/44.1 file and my DAC’s input signal light kept flicking on an off rapidly with broken sound. However I was able to play a 16/48 file (upsampling to 192kHz) with no problem. I experimented with changing the DSP setting to Max PCM rate (set for the SBT to 192kHZ) and it played a number of files of different sample rates upsampled to 192 with no problem.
Even though both support this sample rate, initially I thought this may be a problem with either the SBT, the DAC or a combination thereof. However I subsequently jumped onto the PC (running core) containing a Soundblaster ZXR soundcard (running with ASIO drivers) and experienced the same problem. The Roon software seemed to whizz through the selected album set to upsample to 176.4 without actually outputting anything. Again, it has no problem upsampling 48 or 96 kHz files to 192kHz.
