Got some various DSD files on my NAS and am currently evaluating the latest HQPlayer Embedded trial as a sample upgrade till my Roon Rock. Playback of any PCM, even high res is working like a charm, as also any file from Tidal.
Now, it is not a giant leap of resampling, just for my older JBL studio monitors capable of 24/96 in on AES3 input.
The successful upsample of 16/44.1 have revealed the superior signal integrity of HQPlayer, compared to upsample in Roon Rock. The monitors really sing, with the HQPlayer handling the mathematics.
Now, trying to playback DSD, any DSD format, will simply not work. I cannot get the grip what the heck I am doing wrong. I have managed to download a HQPLayer Desktop Pro manual, but the embedded version of (web) UI is rather different. I understand it all boils down to the box of DSD playback.
Would anyone be so kind to show me how to get DSD playback settings to work?
I have Roon Rock on one NUC, the HQPlayer on another one feeding the USB to EAS3 converter including the XMOS U208 chip. Sounds wonderful … except dead silent DSD’s
This is a potential show stopper for me buying the HQP and I really want it to play everything. Is there any software that will be able to downsample DSD’s to my monitors modest 24/96 with a good quality it is HQP, I think.
