I don't know.  For the above LaTeX code I just do

pdflatex filename.tex

and zoom in to 1600%, and it still looks OK.

How do I check (where do I specify) dpi=2400 ?

I suppose so.  Maybe it works with both.  However, in LaTeX, AFAICT,
cmex#122-125 are used for the extremities, and txexa#32 (or a deprecated
\hbox) are used for the extension.

Can you import txex#122-125 into TeXmacs ?  We can try the horizontal
brace extremities from both fonts then and see which ones look better.
Too bad there's no "cmexa" font with a horizontal brace extension.
