Mac Mini - upsample/upconvert before Bryston


deaddog

Recommended Posts

I am playing ALAC ripped from redbook CD from my mini to a v-link to a bryston bda-1. The bryston has an upsampling function. Assuming I am using the bryston upsampling function, what setting should I have in the Audio Midi output of my Mini - 44.1 or 96?

thanks

Anybody have any opinion to offer on this? I will play with settings to see what I like but I'd really like to know the "technically proper" setup to use as my baseline - should mac mini audiomide be set to 44.1, or 88.2 or 96 when playing redbook ALAC rips from mini to v-link to bryston with bryston's upsampling turned on?

 

thanks

From what I know the proper way would be to set your Mac Mini's sample rate to 44.1 kHz as otherwise your Mac will perform an additional upsampling step with a not necessarily good upsampling algorithm.
