Linn Majik DSM: Songcast Sender Sample Rate?

Linn Majik DSM: Songcast Sender Sample Rate?
The Songcast Sender Sample Rate on my Majik DSM/2 appears to be fixed at 96/24.
This is absolutely fine for me when recording vinyl but is there any possibility to change this?

As far as I can see the „Digital Output Mode“ settings („Raw“, „88/96“, „176/192“ or „Disabled“) in Konfig have no inpact on the Songcast Sender sample rate.

I get 192/24 when using songcorder. Perhaps it's your Mac's limitation?

Yes, I thought that my Mac limits might be the reason.
However, when pushing the „info“ button on my Linn Remote the display ALWAYS returns 96/24, even when my iMac is switched off....

That depends on what source it's playing. Do you only get 96/24 from your phono input? Should be 192.

Selecting Phono as source, then pushing the „Info“ button on the remote the Linn DSM display is showing „96/24“

Is this a limitation of the Majik DSM?

Could be but I doubt it. I can't see any reason why Linn would do that intentionally, but then again the ADC in the Majik would be different to Akurate level. May be worth asking the helpful folk on the helpline? They know everything.

96/24 here as well with Majik DS-I. Back in the day I remember it was a standard for Linn to use 96/24 on DSM products, but it may have changed with Exakt, I guess.

RE: Linn Majik DSM: Songcast Sender Sample Rate?
My Majik DSM always displays 96/24 (on Kazoo iPad app) whenever I am playing vinyl. I don’t songcast or try to record to my MacBook Pro. Maybe it’s just a Majik thing?

The helpful folks on the helpline are very friendly indeed but they do not know everything Wink

The helpline even told me - probably due to my question being phrased in poor english - that a Majik DSM cannot songcast to a Mac or PC at all Big Grin

I‘ve tried several setups now and it appears that the Majik DS(M) is actually limited to 96/24 when songcasting TO a PC or Mac.

No real problem for me and my deaf ears Tongue

Well, to be fair to the helpline, they are actually correct. It can only songcast to a songcast receiver, which a PC/MAC is not. It only becomes one when you have some songcast receiving software on it, such as songcorder or an OpenHome Player.
