This has been posted in the Roon community but it was suggested I post here.
Just purchased a G1 to replace my Meridian MS200. The G1 connects directly to my Meridian DSP3100 speakers via digital coax. All is working well and sounds lovely.
My question concerns how I get the G1 to use it’s capabilities for DSD conversion and downsampling rather than Roon.
It would appear the settings in the Lightning DS app for DSD to PCM and downsampling only apply when music is played back using Lightning DS; for me they have no effect when using Roon. So this means that my DSDs are converted by Roon before sending to the G1, the same as for the few tracks that I have at 192khz, these are downsampled to 96khz by Roon.
In Roon I have set the capabilities of the G1 to 96khz as if I leave it at 192khz there is no sound (this will be because my speakers are limited to 96khz).
Is this how it is supposed to work or have I missed a setting somewhere.
