Hi there, I’m having a problem configuring Roon to convert DSD to PCM on playback. My current DAC does not support DSD but Roon is insisting on sending it DSD data. This is likely because my streamer does support DSD. I can’t seem to find a way to force this conversion to take place.
Here is my config, showing 2 playback chains terminating at the same (non-DSD) DAC. One is properly converting to PCM and plays back well. The other is sending DSD and of course plays only hiss as expected.
Roon version 1.5 ( build 363)
Core: ROCK Roon version 1.5 (build 363)
Playback Chain 1: (not working)
SimAudio Moon MiND (ethernet in, Coax out)
Berkely Audio Alpha DAC
The MinD supports DSD, the Alpha DAC does not
Playback Chain 2: (working)
Sonore Microrendu (ethernet in, USB out)
Berkeley Alpha USB (usb in, AES out)
Berkely Alpha DAC
Here are screenshots of the Device Setup for each streamer:
Simaudio MiND (not working)
Sonore Microrendu (working)
Any help to put me on the path to resolution would be greatly appreciated.
