Whats is DSD128x48?


I’m using HQP to convert to DSD, the settings for which can be seen below plus the Roon signal path.

Can anyone confirm what DSD128x48 in the signal path means?


Most DSD is a multiple of the 44.1 kHz sample rate family. This is a multiple of the 48 kHz family.


I see this when using DoP. If I choose SDM Pack “None”, meaning native DSD, then Roon reports the Bit Rate in kHz.

If you have a DAC that supports native DSD, then try it out, but investigate at low volume first as you can get a very nasty loud pop starting playback in native DSD. Best to mute the preamp until Roon reports the processing speed in the audio chain.
