Thats what i wanted to hear Thank you
I will verify settings… Its most likely a noobie mistake.
There is still a difference in packet jitter. From what I can figure out about RAAT its bound to effect jitter. Digital straming is a freaky beastie. Everything effects sound in a sometime amazing way even tho it seems impossible technically. Differences in Ethernet cables for asynchronous data transmission for example. This makes ZERO sense as the data is clocked into a buffer in the DAC. My best guess is RF is just traveling all over components and leaking into things. I really don’t know…
Switching to a synchronous transmission method is interesting. It should be best if a good clock is used on the DAC and RAAT derives its clock from the DAC. Im a bit confuzed tho as the physical layer of Ethernet has its own clock so unless those 2 are at least phase locked some jitter would result ? The Melco + Clocked Ethernet switch + CH C1d were clocked from the T1. This locked the physical Ethernet layer phase wise to the data clock. At least that sounded like what it did anyway… hahaha… The setup was jaw dropping, even by high end reviewer standards. The room and the rest of the gear helps.
Im sure you guys are right, its a simple setting. But there are not many settings.
Im going to get to the bottom of this. Ive seen a lot of people with high end systems post it sounds the same, so, I must have something wrong.
For anyone willing to try and who has the right gear, it should be simple to look at the word clocks at the input of the DAC chip for roon VS a lightweight player to really verify its the same. Not the reconstructed waveforms, the actual bytes. Checksum it. Pull a file thru both and checksum the results. With a data analyzer this should be fairly easy and this would be conclusive.
