I have an AR GSi75 and it will not play DSD with roon. I am using a Mac. With the GSi75 built in DAC and I set it up following the instructions that was given to the Rossini . I figured it was a similar. Can anybody help me?
to help see what is going on can you post screen shots of Roon’s:
- Audio signal path (when playing a DSD file)
- Audio Device Setup page
I set up roon exactly how it’s set below for Rossini. I don’t know how to post a screen shot of roon’s audio signal path ( when playing a DSD file)
Also I’m looking at the signal path and it says :slight:
Source: DSF. DSD 64. 2 ch
Next it says:
DSD to PCM Conversion
DSD 64 to 352.8khz PCM
Next it says
Roon advanced audio transport
Next it says
That’s the signal path. Why is it converting to PCM when I disabled PCM?
My audio research says 384 instead of DSD 1X
I had my DSD files being converted to PCM through my Ayre QB9 DSD dac until I went into the settings for my dac and chose “DoP” instead of “Native DSD” which it turns out the Ayre does not support. Once I changed that setting (to DoP) the conversion to PCM stopped and my dac showed the proper bit rate for my DSD file.
What is your source?
Not the file but a computer?
MAC or PC?
PC user? What driver do you use? ASIO or WASAPI ?
I think you are using the motherboard sound card.
What is the connection? USB or Toslink?
The Audio Research GSi75 is an integrated amp with a built in DAC and there is no menu setting where I can choose “Dop” in stead of " Native DSD
I have a Mac Mini Late 2014, uses no drivers
My connection is USB.
I have Signalyst HQ Player and it works with fine with that player, but I like Roon and would much rather use it
AH, that’s it.
I think you look here: HQ Player - Roon Troubleshooting Guide
I want to use Roon instead of HQ player. Not together
If you do not use the HQ player, than you use the soundcard of the MAC mini.
I do not know if he can play DSD, I am a PC user.
If I was you, I use the mac/roon/HQ all together.
You must activate HQ in ROON.
It sounds better.
