This is so strange…I already had my OpticalRendu DSD Support set to DoP. Taking no chances, I pressed ‘Save changes’ button in ‘Roon Ready Settings’ menu which caused Roon Ready to be reconfigured and restarted. I now have access to the DSD menu again in Roon. However, when I look at the signal path, it is still not playing in DSD mode…
Fixed my issue. I had to disconnect my DAC power cord as well as my OpticalRendu power cord. I restarted the DAC and then the OpticalRendu. I now have DSD in the signal path.
This procedure was provided by Sonore, whenever there is an issue with their product. I remember using that procedure to solve some handshaking process between the OR and my Benchmark DAC and decided to try it out. Everything is now fine!
No. Essentially, when I do the Sonore procedure (previous e-mail), the DSD LED on my Benchmark is lit up. As soon as I try to play some music, either the skipping tracks dance starts (DSD LED lit up on DAC) or music is playing but at original sampling rate (no DSD) and DAC LED display original sampling/bit rate. This used to work fine prior to 521 build.
