Description Of Issue
I have read all of the knowledge base information and user guide and am unable to get the roon ready properly operating Oppo 205 to take many hi res mqa files while taking others on the remote system with the Oppo using the local USB zone connection and driver with the latest drivers and firmware installed.
It seems that I can use the network zone that was automatically installed but that limits and truncates the M QA files above 88k or 96k so it does not appear to be rendering the file fully after it is initially unfolded by room. The ASIO driver also works with the same limitation.
I was able to get the local zone to play the file and its full 352k resolution but only sometimes, and only after successfully using the network version which automatically chooses the Blu-ray input on the Oppo 205 and switching the input to the USB DAC connection.
I do understand that I have to use the USB DAC connection to get the full benefits of M QA at its full resolution, but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
I have rebooted both computers and have tried a variety of techniques and can discern no common reason why it would play some of the time and not others. The network version seems to operate consistently but at the truncated MQA resolution. The files are physically located on the NAS QNAP server. I have about 6,500 albums in the library, 22,000 compositions and 77,000 files. The computer locally works fine otherwise.
The Roon software also works fine otherwise, and I am quite happy with it. I would just like to get the full resolution of the music now that I realize the oppo 205 I have had since last year will function quite well in this environment and is or at least was supported.
Have Tidal account that works fine on all zones inside Roon except for this problem and in Tidal app. on all of the devices. After much care in reading the literature, this the only thing that does not work.
