Hi there. Node 2i appears to be doing something strange to the 44.1khz signal from both my CD player and minidisc player when they are connected to the optical input. If I connect either device directly to my DAC (cutting out the node completely), the DAC shows a 44.1khz signal as expected. When I connect a CD player to the node via the optical input (same cable as before but adding the 3.5mm adaptor) then a) I see the optical input option in the controller, but I cannot select it (I see the spinning circle saying it's searching) and b) the DAC shows a 48khz signal when it should show 44.1khz. There is no sound from the node. The DAC can deal with a regular 48khz sample rate ok, but not from the node it seems. What is the node doing to the 44.1khz input signal such that the DAC receives a 48khz signal? How can I get the node to pass the 44.1khz signal from the optical input to the optical output? All other node inputs (USB/network files/online streaming services) pass the correct sample rate, it's just the optical input that's being altered. Thanks in advance.
