[FAQ] Can my Network Bridge playback 16-bit files bit perfectly?

Yes, it can. To do this, ensure that there are no downsampling options enabled in the unit, and that the volume control is set to 0.0dB.

Both S/PDIF and AES are 24-bit interfaces. As such, a 16-bit signal has to be sent with padding. If done correctly with no volume control, the DAC should show 16-bit. If any volume control is applied (the unit is set to -1.0dB), the DAC will show 24-bit.
