It would be extremely useful to see the (Roon detected or perceived) DAC capabilities, perhaps on the Device Setup page. For example, something along the lines of:
Roon Core obviously knows this information, it would be helpful it was displayed somewhere, even if only for geeks.
This was displayed in a previous version at least a year back and if memory serves me well it was removed as the function of detection was built in to the audio device detection process.
So I understand… removing functionality for the sake of GUI simplicity? But nevertheless, I think it would be handy to see the supported rates in the device setup page.
That said I too would like to see it return in one form or another…
+1 for the return of the DAC info.
As I recall, the reason given for its omission was that it ‘confused’ people. A case of too much info; don’t understand that.
Anyone else who wants the return of this feature should put their two cents in. Maybe Roon will rethink its policy…
Anyone else other than me want a GUI absolutely cluttered with…information? Anyone find large expanses of white space useless?
Cluttered? No. However, there is being too austere and presenting too little information. I had used the DAC info in a lot of troubleshooting; and it was key to pointing out when things were working (or not).
I think @John_V was a +1 on the idea, but being ironic. Sometimes it’s hard to tell.
I tried the same point with @danny when the info first went missing.
You are correct; cluttered is pejorative.
Perhaps dense is a better term. Cluttered implies uselessness.
