My simplified system:
Roon Nucleus - Network Bridge - Esoteric D05 DAC via double AES EBU (tops at DSD64 DOP)
To get higher rates to play I had to manually change the dCS settings in the Roon app to Maximum DSD64 instead of the default DSD128.
What is better:
- Let Roon convert to DSD64 all higher rates;
- Limit myself to buying DSD64 albums.
In other words, is the Roon conversion to from say DSD256 to DSD64 creating a “worse” path than a clean DSD64 file?
Many thanks - and I know that with a modern DAC I would not be asking this, so please answer only on the above
