I am reviving this thread because I just purchased a Direct Stream DAC with a Bridge II card. If this is the wrong place for my questions I hope someone @Not_Roon will advise.
Attached is a Roon screen shot of an MQA file played through the Direct Stream. As I understand it, the reference to “MQA Full Decoder” means I am getting the optimal MQA setup currently available through Roon. Is that correct?
If I am mistaken about that can someone advise what settings I would need to change?
To the best of my knowledge I have no DSP setting of any kind as of now. I have selected none so any in place would have been applied automatically by Roon. But my understanding is this is not done when Roon recognizes a new DAC.
Am I correct in understanding that adding DSP settings will interfere with proper (or full) MQA playback? So in other words if I want to use DSP (without interfering with MQA) I would need to reset the device (within the Roon settings) when I play a non-MQA file?
If I should choose to try that, can anyone suggest some initial DSP settings to try with a PS Audio Direct Stream DAC?
