Roon now streaming 24-Bit to Sonos

I noticed over the weekend that when I stream from Roon to my Sonos system, 24-bit files are now streamed in their native resolution (up to 24/48).


Previously, everything was downsampled to 16-bit. It seems that a Roon update from October enabled 24-bit streaming to Sonos.


Anything higher than 24/48 is downsampled to either 24/48 or 24/44.1, but this means that a large portion of my library is able to be streamed natively without being resampled.


I appreciate the Sonos and Roon teams for continuing to work on giving us this capability.

Interesting. Thanks for letting the community know!


I’ve not personally used Roon on my own setup, but I know we have a fair few users here on this community who will love to read this news :slight_smile:
