Sure, I don’t convert to dsd in my normal practices. Roon or Roon/HQ player can either upsample or natively pass pcm at any sampling rate. AdditIonally, 1.5 Roon can now unfold mqa and pass to a non mqa dac which regardless of your feelings on mqa is a neat trick if you have tidal. I have never seen anyone complain about SQ that I can remember and more and more people seem to be questioning the need for hq player. (Although if you have a powerful computer HQplayer can do some crazy stuff)
My only motivation in mentioning HQ player is to make note that if by chance you were not happy with Roons digital engine you could offload it to HQplayer which no one seems to dispute is best.
Roon can do so much more too! Multi room, parametric eq, internet radio, etc.
