Can Phantom II 95 play “new” Apple Hi Res?

So Roon can now send up to 96kHz? No more 48kHz resampling in Roon?

The resampling from 96k to 48k is done in the Phantoms after Roon has sent the signal over RAAT and before the Phantoms apply SAM. In the end I do not see if it has any advantage compared to resample in Roon to 48k. Signals above 96k are resampled in Roon to 96k then sent to the Phantoms. This is with the latest firmware DOS 2.13.2 and RAAT SDK 1.1.38.

The only advantage is that if Roon can send 88.2 and 96kHz to a device it will also be possible to enable it's "1st MQA unfold". If RAAT sees only 48kHz capability Roon will disable MQA handling all together. I'm not saying that MQA is something I like, but a lot of users will want it so the difference between 48kHz and 96kHz is significant. The first screen shots I saw from early Roon RAAT signal path to Phantoms were 48kHz (as defined by the info Roon got during RAAT handshake). I thought this was still the case.

Good point! I’m personally in the Qobuz universe, but for Tidal users this indeed is an important argument. Great, Devialet and Roon sorted this out that users can appreciate best quality available. Still, I think Devialet could somehow with Roon make a path that the Ti DAC in the Phantoms could receive a 192k/24bit directly from RAAT to convert to an analog output. Let’s see what the future brings. I’m definitely happy already now with the SQ of my Qobuz-Roon-Phantoms or my local_files-Roon-Phantoms chains. No signal interference, no need of expensive cables, no ground loops, no snake oil needs Smile, happy Phantom owner!
