I have a new Node playing through an integrated amp with built in DAC (Mark Levinson 585). When using the Mac OS app from a 2019 Mac airbook, my amp shows the track is being played at 96 kHz even though it is a 192 track. This is true whether I connect the node via Toslink, or the analog outputs. On bluetooth, I configured the Mac so that the Node is outputting as an aggregate device.The MacBook says the aggregate device's capability is only 96kHz and that is what it outputs at. If I output the Node alone with creating an aggregate device, it shows the capability as 48kHz.
It sounds good but I was able to do the same with an old Audioengine and specifically bought the Node to be able to play the higher resolution. I have logged out and restarted everything but no change. Any suggestions on what else I can try? I have an Amazon Fire tablet I could stream from if that would make any difference. Thanks.
