I have a Bluesound node 2i directly connected to a AustinTrew power amp and Focal speakers.

 

Really simple to navigate and sounds great, no interest in bit perfect, exclusive mode etc, etc, I listen to and enjoy the music not chase numbers and technical details that don’t prove that you will enjoy what you are listening to, isn’t that the whole point of music?


Setup:

Lumin D2> Roksan Blak> Focal 806

The information Amazon Music HD provides when you click on the "Ultra HD" square is not correct. My external DAC tells me what sample rate is being sent to it and even when I stream a 192 track from Amazon Music HD Windows shared mode down samples the file to 96 which is the sample rate I have set in Windows sounds. Same with a 44 track it is up sampled to 96. This is why we need exclusive mode playback bypassing the Windows audio stack.

 

Bluesound node 2i into a Zodiac Gold and the dac always shows the correct sample rate matching that of the file.

Also comparing Amazon to Qobuz I can’t hear any difference in sound quality.
