DSD not playing on dCS DeBussy [Solved - DSP Settings]

Can you help me set up my Roon settings to play with my dCS DeBussy please?
Getting hisss; works in other software.

Hello @Bernard_Aubin,

Can you please post a screenshot of your Device Setup page for the DeBussy? You can access it by Right clicking the zone in the bottom right -> Device Setup.

This should look something like this:

For DSD content on a debussy, you would need to set the DSD playback strategy to DoP as outlined in dCS documentation: https://www.dcsltd.co.uk/products/debussy-dac/keyfeatures


Here is the screenshot.

I looked at the dCS manual and found this discrepancy in my Audio Midi setup:
Not able to see a 384,000 setting.
Finally, can’t see how to set it up in DoP.
thx again


Try setting that master stream slider to full in audio midi setup. Typically the Midi settings don’t make a difference when exclusive mode is set, but I have a feeling that’s messing with the bitstream before it gets to the DAC.

Your Roon settings look OK.

I did it and I do hear music but, as the screenshot shows, it converts the DSD tpo PCM…

Hello @Bernard_Aubin,

I noticed that you have Headroom Adjustment turned on, can you please check your DSP -> Sample Rate Conversion Settings?

I would make sure that it is Enabled and that you have Sample Rate Conversion set to DSD and not Max PCM Rate:

Please let me know if that helps.



I did all of this PLUS I saw that "Enable native DSD " was Off .
All good now and thanks so much for your help.
