Description Of Issue
I play a lot of 4.0, 5.0 and 5.1 albums, resolution from 96-24 up to DSD256, both native resolution and also upsampled to DAD256, on my family room system.
When I play all these albums “Lossless” without any DSP or Filters or Volume Leveling, everything is fine, and I do not get any annoying pop/click (which could blow my tweeters potentially) at the end of albums…
I can play up to 5/5.1 Ch up to DSD256 “Lossless” fine. I can add headroom management, upsample to DSD256, and add volume leveling no problem, no pop/click. But when I enable the filter “Speaker Setup” then I pretty much always get a pop/click at the very end of many MCh DSD albums, and at the very end of my one MCh DSD128 album, and at the very end of each of my 13 MCh DSD256 albums.
So I am not able to use the “Speaker Setup” filter without fear of listening at normal level and blowing out my tweeters with the pop/click at the end of MCh DSD256 albums or anything upsampled to MCh DSD256.
Another issue is the “Gain” setting in the filter for "Speaker Setting is worthless. I tried using it to set speaker levels at the MLP and it did practically nothing - I find myself using the Exasound s88 speaker level settings which work perfectly.
I might add in my theater room I use a Trinnov Altitude 32 SSP which also is ROON Ready ethernet.
However, as I used the Trinnov software for speaker levels and delays (using the Trinnov Optimizer), I never tried ROON’s internal filters.
Please correct this issue. Thanks.
