My current NAD 765 allows for Audyssey Room Correction. I ran it, and it only boosted a couple of speakers by a few db. I am running a 7.1 speaker system. For some reason, Audessy can’t see the ELAC sub-woofer, but it still plays…and that ELAC sub-woofer has its own room correction. Anyway, I went back to NAD speaker set up and eliminated all of the db boost on some speakers. All are set to 0 db. Then I went into Roon DSP and used the speaker set-up, just entering speaker distances. Im just wondering what happens when Roon passes that sound into my NAD, which has its own DAC. Does the DAC ignore the Roon input and output the NAC speaker settings output? Not a big thing…I can’t tell the difference…just interested in how it works.
The other part of my question involves my setup of the NAD 765 on Roon. NAD 765 not an option on Roon, so I use NAD 758. I chose in advanced settings output stereo to 7.1, but I’m getting no sound on the rear or surround channels using my Tidal sources…is that because Tidal is a 2.0 source? In other words, what does the Roon stereo to 7.1 output actually do?
