I was paying some music back earlier and noticed the signal path view which was very interesting.

MQA encoded music seamed pretty straightforward with only 1 chain in the middle but listening to 176khz FLAC 24bit there was 4 different stops in the chain, can’t remember off the top of my head what they were. Is it because the 3200’a are 96khz hence the longer signal path?

Hope I made that clear 🤦🏼‍♂️

Almost certainly. Strictly, the limitation is the Sooloos endpoint in the 218: Roon will have to down-sample before streaming to it.

Thanks.

Will Roon adjust automatically to best suit the 218? I haven’t personally tinkered with any settings since I installed Roon

It should do, but without seeing a signal path for different audio formats, it's impossible to tell. If you need assistance, please post in the support section of the Roon forum.
