Sampling rate locked at 32bit/192kHz


Why is the sampling rate for all NAD products locked at 32bit/192kHz, any idea? and no DSD native support too.


It’s down to the specification of the DAC (Burr Brown) used in their devices.

So it is because of the DAC chip they use… sad indeed…

This isn’t an issue unless you have DSD content which needs converting to PCM first and may loose quality. PCM recordings, including MQA, have a maximum resolution of 192kHz 24bit and will be delivered bit-perfect. You can use Max PCM Rate (Power of 2) in DSP settings.
