My setup: Node 2i connected through digital coax to my Lyngdorf TDAI-2170. The Lyngdorf DAC does not support MQA.
I understand that MQA files played through coax are max. 24 bit and 96KHz. It also feels that it only does 1 MQA unfold - thus limiting the sound quality. This limitation does not exist when the analogue output is used.
So I wonder - is this a hardware limitation or can we expect this to be "fixed' in the future? My Lyngdorf is fully digital so an analogue input would mean two conversions D/A -> A/D.
If it indeed is a limitation - does this mean that QOBUZ might be the better service for me as it does not limit me to 96Khz?
