Having a quick search on Roons message in your screenshot, for better understanding on my part, it might be Roon doing you a favour.
Dithering is the process of adding noise to a signal, in an effort to mask and randomize higher-order harmonics, and in turn, make quantization distortion less perceivable. Dithering should only be used during the mastering process, and only when the bit depth of a signal is being reduced.*
Quite possibly, but this is early testing software and we are providing feedback.
Going to have to unplug the DAC soon though, before it burns me
I don’t think it normally gets this hot, but that will have to be an investigation for another night.
Maybe time to turn on the Sonos Roam a go👍
Yes that one is not seeing the USB audio DAC.
Interesting I was able to make something like this happen last night.
I was playing a podcast and closed it and started playing audio and it didn’t work, then it worked on AUDIO only. Try removing the DAC (if you have not tried that already) and putting it back in.
I also have a couple of mini DACS that just don’t work and give an error message
