    Lumin T2 Question about DSD 512 for Mr. Wie

    I've owned a T2 about a year and am very happy. I just became a Roon adopter. Do you recommend using the T2 or my SonicTransporter Roon server to upsample to DSD512?
    thanks for your time.

    Chris, the T2 upsamples to DSD512. I just want Mr. Wie's opinion which way would be best when using the Roon interface.

    I have the T2 but have never used upsampling. It sounds great as it is.
    Wonder if it's worth it when playing cd quality?
    Something to try over the coming days.

    Showroom....I prefer the upsampled DSD512 sound, more detail and spaciousness with my equipment, a PrimaLuna tube integrated amp. I stream all my music through Qobuz and have an outboard SSD plugged in with my CD collection. Your ears are undoubtedly different than mine.

    Not according to Peter on another site. It will work with ROON doing the 512..

    "
    Lumin optionally does internal re-sampling for X1 / T2 / U1 / U1 MINI from/to up to DSD128 only.

    To upsample DSD512 re-sampling for playback by Lumin, please try Roon.

    When using Roon, turn off Lumin internal re-sampling, which cannot do DSD512 upsampling anyway. You may try whether Roon no-upsampling vs Roon DSD512 upsampling sounds better to you. Some people prefer DSD, some do not.
