I’ve just received the new Musical Fidelity M6SR DAC and I’ve been testing it out using my RopieeeXL on a Pi 4. This new DAC now supports native DSD (not that I’m bothered about if it is native or DoP after reading up on it here). As I didn’t have any DSD files to play via Roon I downloaded a free song in various formats including 64 and 128 dsd. (Keith Greeninger-close to the soul) I have then been playing these various files back via dlna on the ropieee.
I seem to have 2 issues.
1st is that if I turn off DoP for dlna playback Ropieee cannot seem to send the native dsd and the dac shows the dsd 64 & dsd128 files as 384 kHz flac files. I assume this is due to there not being a driver in ropieee that supports this brand new dac so the files are being transcoded…
2nd is that if I turn on DoP for Dlna in ropieee and try these 2 dsd files the decoder does indeed show them as dsd files however the playback of the file seems to have increased speed… these files (along with there 96/192khz flac counterparts) all sound the same when the dsds were being converted when It couldn’t handle the native. But if you send them DoP they sound like the song is on helium!
Has anyone got any ideas why this may be happening?
