DSD vs PCM output from Roon to DSD capable DAC

Recommended Posts

Playing around with Roon right now USB connected to Mojo DAC from a generic PC with Roon core on Euphony NUC. In PCM mode this bothered me badly with

the vagueness of sound definition but changing this to DSD over DoP converted output sharpened/corrected this quite a bit. Is this a common finding?

Are you comparing PCM to DSD over DoP?

Or are you comparing DSD converted to PCM (in some way) sent as native DSD to DSD over DoP?

Or something else.


Well, I do not do DoP but DSD out directly compared to DSD converted to PCM generally sounds remarkably similar.  I do the latter, however, because I want to apply DSP so, in the end, it is intentionally different.
