My new DAC reports both sampling frequency and bit count, and everything that comes from the Node 2i is reported as the correct sampling rate but always 24 bits, is there any kind of upsampling going on in the Node or is this just a bug in the data stream info to the external DAC??
The manual for the DAC states the following:
The bit count (word length) indicates the contents of the
word length data included in the channel status which is
specified in IEC60958-3 (digital audio interface - Part 3:
Some output devices may provide channel status data
(word length data) whose content is different from the
actual word length. In such a case, the contents of the
channel status data are indicated on the display instead
of the actual bit count.
Alternatively, some devices or sources may provide
the data that states “the word length is not specified”.
In such a case, the bit count is not displayed.
BTW: I'm using fixed output settings, is there anything else I should change to be bitperfect?
