iDSD Black Label Micro - Share your HQPlayer Settings!

If you’re an owner of an iFi iDSD Black Label Micro, would you please share your settings used in HQPlayer? I just got this software and am exploring it. :slight_smile:

You can run it at DSD512 using poly-sinc-ext2 and ASDM7 modulator. Set filter switch to “Standard”.

Note that you may need to downgrade the firmware to version 5.2 in order to get DSD512 support.

Thank you for your reply! :slight_smile: I’ll try it. Thank you

Hey Jussi, may I confirm that these are the settings that I use with HQPlayer? :slight_smile:


That is fine for the ASIO driver. Although I would uncheck “Direct SDM” to get also DSD sources upsampled to DSD512. With Linux it would also open up possibility to use 48k-base DSD rates, but the ASIO driver on Windows doesn’t allow it.

In case you ever want to send PCM there, you can set “DAC bits” to 24. But I don’t recommend sending PCM to this DAC, it performs so much better with DSD512 input.
