Agreed. The "unfolded" file which can be read by any DAC should sound better than CD - it is effectively a high resolution file compressed into a 16/44 format using a benign and clever process.

I have a Prime headphone amp winging its way to Oz and was wondering, hoping that my MS200 will act as a Roon end point and allow full MQA rendering in the Prime.

Would anyone be able to confirm this please?

Thanks,
Andrew

Hi Andrew

Your MS200 will work as a Roon endpoint, full MQA decoding and rendering is only available on the Prime via the USB input according to the data sheet whistle the MS200 will be able to receive and pass the first decode from Roon but the rendering can not be done afaik. A possibility is using a 218 to do the decode and render and connect the analog out to the Prime in theory that should give you full MQA.... maybe Joel could confirm?

Thanks Russ,

If the MS200 ends up being a no go, would plugging the ROCK NUC into the Prime be an option?

Would an Allo USBridge work?

Thanks,

Andrew

Hi Andrew.

Good thought, either way should work although the USbridge gives more flexibility over location just ensure Roon does not do the decode.

RPi with Roon Bridge works perfectly well into a Prime. £40 ish and about 10 mins one time to follow a script to load the pi.


Rgds,
