Description Of Issue
Roon does not recognize the internal DAC (AKM 4490) inside t he Schiit Jotunhiem and will downgrade any 24 bit to 16. I was able once to move USB port and reconfigure it but it came back. This is the Device setting:
From the screenshot you listed, it appears that you are playing 44.1/16 source content, not 44.1/24.
Can you try playing 44.1/24 content and share a screenshot of your signal path afterwards?
Is the behavior the same with the Audeze Preset turned off?
@noris Here it is another example with MQA without Audeze:
Pleas also notice the case that Device setting is missing DSD playback. This is another DAC connected to the same Computer:
Thanks for sharing those screenshots. I wonder what your OSX Audio MIDI is reporting for this zone, can you please open the Audio MIDI from the Applications -> Utilities folder, select this Schiit zone and post a screenshot of the possible rates it supports? The screenshot should look something like this:
This is 4490 G2 that has issue:
and this is Schiit Modi Multibit (USB Gen 2) that works like a charm:
I think I found the issue. It is the way Mac configures it, through USB hub. I connected it to Mac directly and I was able to see the bits. Modi is connected to USB hub as well. Apparently it has nothing to do with Roon. It is a bug in Mac plug and play. I was able to connect it to USB hub as well and see all the bits.
Glad to hear that you were able to narrow down the issue to the USB hub in use.
I see that you’re on your way here, so I will mark this thread as [solved].
Thanks for reaching out to us!
