Dac Question.

I have a DacMagic 100
I have my PC output set to 16/44.1
Incoming sample rate is lit to 44.1

Is the outgoing rate I am hearing 44.1?
That is my lreference.

I was thinking of buying a PS Digital Audio Link iii however I read in the manual it says choose between 96 and 192 ....I am not interested in upsampling at this time.

So to.circle back I just want to know either DAC will send out what same rate it receives.



Confirmed...just called ps audio.....

It does not spit out a native mode from your source settings....

The NUWave model does it has Native light on fron panel.

The ps 3 you have to choose either 96 or 192.
Sad to see that (most aren’t like that). As maybe your power amp or your speakers don’t do too well at such high frequencies (breakout modes, IMD, etc.). So yeah, if it’s between 96 and 192, choose 96.
@mcNot interested in a Dac that has those options only....

Truth be known.....my speakers do very well in revealing the difference between my native 44 and upsampled 96...

I am not concerned about treble its fine..

While adding soundstage and depth in 96
You are giving up midbass ...also the bass has less impact....try it sometime if your DAC allows....

The 96 or higher to me makes for a "Thinner" presentation.

Higher sampling rate does nothing to the lower frequencies the lower sampling rate already covers (disregarding the reconstruction filter). However, the DAC you used may perform better with such sampling rates, but it’s not a truthful blanket statement.
