Has anyone been able to export music into DSD 512 into a Chord DAVE? I’m using a 6 core Mac Pro cylinder and I can easily get DSD 256 at 3.8 or 3.9 processing speed, but I don’t even have an option available for DSD 512 in the DSP menu.
Pretty sure @Rugby is correct. If you had a Windows network endpoint (say, a NUC with the requisite drivers running Roon Bridge) and used the Mac Pro (running Roon or Roon Server) to do the upsampling, that should work.
FWIW, I’ve read that because of the way the Chord DACs are designed, they sound better if you upsample to the highest PCM rate the DAC will accept (768 kHz for the Dave) and feed that to the DAC. (I’d love to give you a link, but I believe this info is buried somewhere in the very long HQPlayer thread on Computer Audiophile.)
Any luck to find a way to play 512DSD with Roon and Nuc?
Im using Mscaler at the moment and nuc connected to Mscaler than Dave.
I get max 706khz DoP i guess or 256 DSD.
I cant select more than this on Roon as Mscaler is max 256DSD OR 768khz DoP.
It looks to me that only way to play 512DSD and higher is replacing Dac.
Hope you find better solution.
I had the same issue and then learned that only Windows/Asio drivers could stream DSD 512 using USB. All non-windows, including Linux, are unable to pass DSD 512 using USB. So it is not Dave not playing, but you are unable to send native DSD 512 to Dave except if you use Windows/Asio drivers.
Hi Dabass… thank you will install and play.
Wonder if any network transport connected to Dave make perfect couple to play 512DSD.
Probably not cause its mostly linux or so based units.
If I find any solution in the future will post here on forum definatelly.
Thanks for help and share.
