No, the issue is still present. I have that updating. The issue isn't via usb, but via Roon Streaming either wifi or ethernet
Hello,
did you still have the same issues even with later updates?
Listening to DSD using Roon is one of the key use cases for the new streamer I am looking for and due to your post I am now hesitant to try this matrix.

Can anyone compare the Mini-Pro 3 to a Monoprice THX Monolith and the RME ADI-2 Pro FS R?

Looking for an AIO solution for my HD800S.

I just got this today and I'm pretty blown away by it, especially as a Roon endpoint. The high impedance headphone outs were disappointing to read about, but they sound very good. The HD650 sounds fantastic out of the balanced 4.4mm. I think I have finally found my bedside table setup.

Edit: The Abyss doesn't sound bad at all, quite enjoyable especially for late night listening. I think the higher impedance output might be warming it up a bit and making it more laid back than it is out of more ideal amps. The bass is still very satisfying.

Love this little thing so much. I went a little overboard with my bedside setup.

A perfect bedside setup. Simple, organic, warm and relaxing sound.

Hi folks

I purchase the matrix 6 months ago and I'm so happy with it. Lately I've been reading about output impedance of the amp section of this dac. 11ohms on 6.35 and 22 on 4.4.

I usualyy plug some low ohms headphones (audioquest nighthawk for example) to the 4.4...

Its really so important that values ?

Very nice setup with d5200 and 4.4 cable
Glad you're enjoying that combination. I haven't tried my D5200 with the mini, but their impedance is listed as 24 ohms and they're dynamic drivers, so the high output impedance of the mini (unfortunate) should be modifying their frequency response, impacting their sound. Are you noticing that they sound more laid back or anything compared to usual? I have paired mine with the HD650 because of its high impedance and it sounds fantastic.

Anyone here compare the mini to the matrix sabre pro? I understand they solve two somewhat different problems but would to hear a comparison none the less.
