I have an extensive collection of multi-channel FLAC music files, encoded in DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital 5.1, etc. I am a licensed user of ROON.
I plan to purchase the Node 2i as a Network Audio Adapter and connect it, via Digital Coax, to my Denon AVR. The Node 2i will be used as a ROON Ready streamer.
While Roon definitely supports multi-channel music playback, I want to confirm that the Node 2i also supports multi-channel playback via the digital output to the AVR.
In my setup, I am bypassing the Node 2i DAC and sending the digital output direct to the AVR DAC for decoding for playback in my system.
2nd Question: Does the digital output of the Node 2i support bit perfect digital output for Non-MQA music at full 24bit/192Khz resolution? In other words, when connecting to my AVR via Digital COAX will my native 24/192 FLAC music files be decoded? I seem to have read something that the digital output is limited to 96Khz except for MQA files, which are supported up to 192khz.
