I’m on the fence about purchasing a license but hoping the community can clear up some misinformation on my part. I’m using the setup below but see two different sample rate values on my DAC’s display versus Tidal’s standalone desktop app.
Ex: Playing the same song, Tidal shows 384khz while Audirvana shows 44.1khz. The DAC can definitely go higher but the community consensus seems to avoid upsampling. I definitely prefer the sound of Audirvana so it’s more to fulfill my curiosity.
DAC: SMSL SU-8 V2 (DSD512, 784 kHz capability)
AMP: Monolith THX 887
