Description of Issue

Dear roon Support team,

Unfortunately, as I found out the sound quality is significantly worse on macOS Monterey than on macOS Mojave (separate installations on the same mac mini as roon core, other macOS in between were skipped). If possible, no additional processes are running. The legacy version of roon runs on Mojave, formerly legacy on Monterey, now 2.0, which makes no difference. I always use the conversion to DSD256 which is great with my DAC.

How can I set up Monterey in such a way that the usual and great sound quality of roon does not suffer?

Thank you in advance for a brief note.

Best regards
Stefan Weiss
