Many (seems that all, but not completely sure) records from Tidal which are served in AAC 22.05kHz 16bit 2ch do not play correctly - they play too slow (so with too low pitch). Example: Oddatteee “Steely Drakglasses”, U-Cef “Halalwood”,
Roon server is installed on Linux and playing to builtin ALSA card.
This problem does not occur for 44.1 kHz FLACs.
A bug in sample rate conversion perhaps? This is a step shown between the source and RAAT.
Also, just noticed: Tidal AAC 48kHz 16bit 2ch do not play at all - the player goes into state “beginning playback” (0:00 time mark on the progress bar), but the playback does not start (and there is no sound, and the progress bar does not move).
After such playback attempt, no future attempts to play music succeed:
- from Tidal (even normal FLAC albums that played a moment ago) fail - the player goes almost into “playback” state (on the progress bar there is a blur of color going back and forth and the time marker does never appear on the bar)
- from local files - the play button in in the “playing” state, playback does not start, time marker (this tiny ) does not appear on the progress bar.
Restart of Roon server is required to restore the playback capability.
