What material exactly were you using?

Most of the albums were Warner albums bought from Highresaudio. Maybe my experience was the reason why Highresaudio stopped selling theese MQA-albums. The PCM-files were bought long ago.

Is the 218 capable of handling/processing/decoding DSD files or is that capability still limited to the 818v3/808v6/UltraDAC devices?


Wonderful perfect quadraphonic sound with distortion levels so low as to make a brave man weep smile

It's not. The other devices you list only handle DSD through their USB input, which the 218 unfortunately doesn't have.

Apologies if this is a dim question but does anyone know if the 218 will work as a Roon interface with 18 bit DSP5000's (non-SpeakerLink)?

Just a point of information: the 8x8 and Ultra also accept DSD64 over SPDIF.

Yes. It has coaxial out or you could use a Reviver with the SpeakerLink out.
