Tried PS Audio Direct Stream DAC, Sonore MicroRendu and Samsung Note9 cell phone. same issue.
I’m using Tidal premium account which plays Tidal albums in AAC lossy quality. however some albums play with no issue and some just don’t play. on the album pages, both show the format as flac 44.1kHz 16bit. in Roon signal path, there are differences. the albums that do play show the source signal in 22.05kHz and 24bit. the albums that don’t play show the source singal in 44.1kHz and 24bit. I attach here the screenshots of them. any idea whether the issue is due to difference format by Tidal?
Thanks to @BlackJack who guided me to apply the user provided ffmpeg which I updated days ago but now there is this strange issue I need to seek support from Roon team.
