#01 Can Roon end-point support DSD128?
No. You can see all media player specifications here.
#05 How can I stream music to the MP-40?
You can use the Lyngdorf Remote App (Android and IOS) for playing audio files from an USB drive or NAS (Network Attached Storage). A Roon server setup and Spotify apps will be able to connect directly, whereas all Media Player applications based on the universal DLNA communication will be able to connect to the processor and activate playback.
AirPlay functionality will allow you to stream audio from your portable Apple device to the processor.
#04 Will it be possible to stream films to the MP-40?
No, the MP-40 does not feature a video media player, so you need to stream to the television and have the audio extracted by the television like with a normal TV show.
#03 Will the MP-40 be able to handle HDMI 2.1?
Yes, it will be possible later in 2021 to upgrade the MP-40 to full HDMI 2.1 specifications allowing pass through of 8K video signals.
The MP-40 features eARC, which will allow for you to connect a future 8K video source directly to the television, and have the full audio signal extracted by the television and sent to the MP-40 through the HDMI cable.
