What soundcard has the highest samplerate ?
As far as I know, RME can go quite high.
It might vary in Mac/Windows. Which one do you use?
Here’s a little thread asking a similar question
DSD and PCM are different things. DSD makes excessive use of noise shaping.
Why do you need to know that?
I asked Bard:
The highest sample rate available in soundcards in 2023 is 768 kHz. This is offered by a few high-end audiophile DACs, such as the RME ADI-2 Pro FS R BE.
Here are some soundcards that offer a 768 kHz sample rate:
- RME ADI-2 Pro FS R BE
- Antelope Audio Discrete 8
- Apogee Symphony I/O x2
- Lynx Aurora(n) 8
- Merging Technologies Horus
- Prism Sound Atlas
- Sonnet Echo 10 Express
- Universal Audio Apollo X18
With the funny side note that most PCM AD/DAs are actually delta-sigma converters „behind the scenes“.
from the technical specs…
Sample Rate support 44.1 – 384 kHz PCM DXD and DSD64/128/256
as far as I remember, this isn’t an audio interface at all…
This doesn’t exist. Maybe you mean the Apollo X 8 or the X 16?
And these are not capable of 768kHz. Max sample rate supported is 192kHz.
That happens when you ask AI…
