    Hi Bert

    You are limited to the DAC of your amplifier and bypass our on board Burr Brown 24/192 DAC when you use optical or COAX. Try connecting the RCA Analogue outs and use the  NODE's on-board DAC. Let us know if your ears prefer that.

    Hi Tony! Many thanks for the reply. It is not an answer to my question though, what is the output in terms of sample rate for the coax/optical connection. The DAC in the amp (ESS Sabre 9018 K2M) is superior to that of the Bluenode 2i, and I didn't buy the Node2i for its DAC but for its versatile streaming abilities. I don't get why the Node2I's output seems limited to 44khz for now. So can you please confirm what output signal the coaxial connection provides, what sample rates, etc.

    It's not... contact your DAC manufacturer and ask them why you are only getting 16/44. 

    ...unless you are listening to MQA content. And this will only happen on MQA content; https://support1.bluesound.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006191908

    Hi Tony, Many thanks again. I did, and here is what they say:

    "I suspect the blue sound is down sampling to 44.1kHz, I would advise you to speak to blue sound and find out why it is outputting 44.1kHz  I have no knowledge of this product Node 2. The Audiolab 6000A will support up to 192/24 PCM."

    It seems one is pointing fingers at each other here haha and I am  still stuck with  544khz. Is there a way to verify the output signal by bluesound's node 2i, so I can be assured the problem lies with the amp and with the node?

    again, MQA is not switched on and output level setting are fixed and tone control is switched off in BlueOs

  • Hi Bert

    Help, Diagnostics, Advanced is our system log. I assure you, we do not down sample. It is in fact something we take great pride in.

    I assure you the problem is not at our end. I have been down this road a few times and it is always the DAC.
