Newbie Requesting Help switching between DSD and 44K playback
« on: September 23, 2015, 04:53:21 pm »

Hello,

I am demoing JRiver 20.  DSD works great!!!  When I select a 44K track, the playback is incredible distorted.  Can you explain how to configure so that I can seemlessly play both formats without losing sanity?

Thank you

I probably should add my DAC is Wyred 4 Sound DAC 1 LE used in a 2 channel system with L and R speakers plus a subwoofer.

That's odd.  What type of file?  2 channel?

You can use DSP Studio to output what you want.

More details on MC's settings and the connection might help.

Output Format Encoding:  8xDSD

Turn that off.  It should be set to "none".  That setting is only to be used if your DAC ONLY supports DSD and does NOT support PCM.  It converts everything to DSD.  You've already got bitstreaming for DSD turned on, so it should pass DSD through to your DAC without any changes.

Turn off the output format encoding and you should be able to play PCM properly.  Be sure to set the various rates to map to something that your DAC can handle.  For example, if your DAC can't play anything above 192,000, then set everything above that to 192,000.

Good luck,

Brian.
