Description of Issue

Sample rate not playing over 44khz

Post a view of your signal path.

Welcome to the Roon community, @Aman_Gulati.

What DAC is connected to the MacBook? Likewise, what is the sample rate of the source material?

If you’re connecting to a Mac, make sure you use CoreAudio.


If you go to audio midi settings on the Applications/Utilities what do you get for your dac?

do you have exclusive in roon (and do not use osx for system output)

Hope it helps
