Sample Rate conversion

Can anyone explain to me why am getting sample rate conversion on my audio even though it’s not enabled?

The upsampling is by the 851N – not by Roon. You can see this in the signal path: all processing done by Roon (none in this case) is shown before the zone & transport (Cambridge Audio 851N / Roon Advanced Audio Transport) – all processing done by the endpoint itself is shown after.

From the tech specs at CA’s website:

2nd Generation ATF2 up-sampling to 24-bit/384kHz.

Thanks for the reply. I’m going to see if this can be disabled on the CA.

No, it is standard behavior of almost any DAC and only a few report internal upsampling back to Roon and thereby making it visible

The 851n is a sweet looking unit. How does it sound with the upsampling?

If no oversampling is the goal, maybe investigate getting a NOS DAC.
