Hello Everybody,
before buying a DDRC-22D I've read on the user manual that "the digital outputs of the DDRC-22D operate at 96 kHz sample rate. Any connected DAC must support this sample rate. (The digital inputs of the DDRC-22D accept any sample rate up to 216 kHz.)
Does it mean that if my streamer plays a song at 192 KHz / 24 bit it will be accepted in input of the DDRC-22D and will be downsampled at 96 KHz? I am a little bit confused.
Could you please clarify the concept?
Many thanks in advance for your reply

But this deteriorates the sound quality, right?

Nope.  Not unless you’re a bat with super duper ultrasonic hearing.  Seriously though, the majority of people (if not all) wouldn’t be able to tell a difference under proper listening tests.  There’s tons of debate around this on various forums that you can trawl through although you’ll soon lose the will to live.  It’s not worth worrying about.
