Description Of Issue

Why is roon doing rate conversion when i’m playing flac from nas library?

the same setup but TIDAL masters, no conversion.

Because you are using ChromeCast which is limited to 48kHz playback (96kHz for devices that properly support it). The second screenshot only shows the successful MQA Authentication, it’s still 48kHz (see Source entry) which is supported by ChromeCast. If the CXN v2 is an MQA decoder and renderer, it will create the 192kHz audio out of the 48kHz source. See also:

Hi @Hunor_Tomai,

The above information from @BlackJack is correct. Since you are using Google Cast to the Cambridge, you are limited to 48kHz as the max sample rate. If you wish to output past this, you will need to use USB to the Core or if you wish to keep an Ethernet connection you can purchase an Ethernet -> USB zone, such as Sonore micro/ultraRendu, Allo USBridge to facilitate the Ethernet -> USB connection on behalf of the Core.
