Native DSD now possible in Linux
« on: November 24, 2014, 04:10:40 pm »

It seems that now native DSD (non DoP, up to DSD512) is possible on linux, see
The official support will come with alsa 1.0.29 and kernel 3.18 only for some XMOS dacs like IFI nano/micro iDSD
I have compiled alsa-git and the last realtime kernel with the new patches and all is working (with a special version of mpd called mpd-dsd)

I hope that there will be support for this in the future. Also, I would like to have at least 4xDSD (as in the Window version) as a choice in output format.
Remember that now there is a new popular DAC, the iFi iDSD micro, than can reproduce up to 768 kHz in PCM and up to DSD512 in native bitstreaming.
