Hi @Outlaw,

The video you linked isn’t working for me. Can you try uploading it directly to

Can you also give us some details about your setup and share a screenshot of the signal path?


Okay I downloaded to that link

Router Unifi Dream machine.Dac is a Moon 280d with Mind 2 streamer which is Roon certified Dac hooked to Unifi 8 port switch.It is all hard wired.

Should i go into web page for Roon Rock and reinstall operating system ?

Hello @Outlaw,

Try a full (remove power cord) power cycle of the NUC and the 280D.


okay will try that

No still same problem

Also tried reinstalling operating system on nuc with Roon no luck ?

I just know tried Roon on windows 10 PC same issue.This issue only started with last update to 710 ?

Any other ideas ???

Just tried with external ssd with dsd 256 files.DSP turned off still issue remains.I have spent all eve on this gotten no where.Very Frustrated.

Hello @Outlaw,

To the best of my knowledge nothing was changed in the area of DSD or audio playback in the update.

I’ve scheduled test time with our in-house 280D for tomorrow.


Okay thanks.Didn’t change nothing on my end other then the update.

Also I can use HQPlayer with Roon and no issues with DSD 256

I did a complete fresh install of ROCK on my NUC, it now seems to be working properly.
Fingers crossed.

Hello @Outlaw,

Glad to hear it’s working again, let us know if you run into further troubles.
