Roon 2 PC setup question.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

If i have Roon on 2 pcs, one has Roon Os and the other is my windows pc with the normal roon app.

Can i upsample to DSD512 on my windows pc and send it to the Roon Os pc, basically the Roon Os pc can`t handle DSD512 so i want to know if it is possible to get DSD512 using this method.

@BOBO -- upsampling to DSD512 takes a seriously powerful PC.


Roon operates where the data flows from the PC running Roon Core (server) to a PC running Roon Bridge (endpoint).  The PC running Roon Core does the upsampling.


The alternative is to use HQPlayer.  My understanding is that people use a second powerful PC to run HQPlayer and then run NAA on the endpoint.
