I’m auditioning the DSJ. At about 100 hours of breaking and will soon put it to the test. Am coming from the SGCD.
I’m a Roon/ HQPlayer user and seek a better grasp of how all of this integrates with the DSJ.
I understand, quite sadly, that the Bridge 2 does not provide NAA support, so no HQPlayer support. An odd decision on PS Audio’s part given most audiophiles (if Computer Audiophile is any indication) prefer HQP with Roon.
My question is two fold:
- The DSJ upsamples everything to DSD 64 over the Bridge, along with 20 times DSD (not quite sure what the 20 times part means). Does the DSJ do all of this regardless of the software source? Or if it receives an already upsampled DSD signal from my Mac (either Roon over the Bridge 2 or Roon/HQP via USB), does that negate whatever upsampling the DSJ does?
Or does the DSJ do its upsampling thing anyway?
- Any thoughts on the merits of Roon via the Bridge 2 vs Roon/HQP via USB?
I like the idea of the Bridge 2 serving as a MicroRendu/ SOTM type device.
Thanks From Maui!
