Resampling to 24/96 with GLM SAM monitors for sound improvements?

Resampling to 24/96 with GLM SAM monitors for sound improvements?

Padawan Viestejä: 41 Liittymispäivä: 21.10.2016 Viimeisimmät viestit

I use a Auralic Aries G2 as a streamer and Roon to play my music. Both allow resampling (up and downsampling). Roon Server is running on a own i7 Mini-PC with Roon ROCK installed only, so there is plenty of power for resampling.

So I am thinking about resampling everything to 24/96, because this is the internal sampling frequency of my Genelec 8351B. In that case Genelec DSP doesn‘t have to do a internal resampling.

Has anybody experience in that use case or a helpful advise?

I have similar setup with 8361s and Roon to Ropiee + PI2AES. I am using just what is on track and send it to speakers. If you resample all tracks to 24/96 you will add +1 resampling in pipeline. So makes no sense to me. Also as I remember - woofers are 24/48 while tweeter use 24/96. 

So I would not do it.

Did you try upsampling in your setup? I know, woofers are 24/48 while midrange/tweeter use 24/96, so there is only a +1 resampling for the woofers. My question was primarily  focused on the best technical setup. I think I have to trust my ears... :-)

All of my my audio sources are digitally connected to two 8351. Because DSD isn't supported directly, I have to convert my collection of DSD64 files to PCM, which is supported by 8351 up to 24/192. At the first approach I used the "natural" (?) conversion to 24/88.2. The speakers internally were resampling again to 24/96 resp. 24/48. I was not satisfied with the result acoustically. I think the reason is that resampling from 24/88.2 to 24/96 is not an easy conversion regarding computing power.

I decided to resample the DSD64 material to 24/96 and the result was very pleasing. I use an offline resampler, i.e. not the built-in resampling facilities of my audio software. Why offline resampling? I didn't want to repeat my experience with realtime resampling to avoid overload of my tiny RPi based audio player. Second argument: I want to evaluate the various (open-source based) resamplers for Windows and Linux,
