microRendu and Rotel RC-1590 - no DSD?

Can someone help me please?

@Jesus_Rodriguez or @agillis maybe?

Here is the manual on Rotel RC-1590 preamp / DAC:


It clearly says DSD is supported, native or DoP, page 14. I made sure I switched Rotel to USB 2.0. Roon keeps converting DSD files to PCM. See pic.

I tried both Native and DoD on mRendu web GUI. Nothing.

Any help is appreciated!

Here is a picture of DAC menu on sonicorbiter mRendu website:

OK. Rebooted everything. Now DSD works on DoP only, not native.

I have the 2.5 upgrade on mRendu, and it should do Native. No?

At least I got it to work… Native or not.

Here is another screenshot from mRendu:

DoP is native DSD inside your DAC.

Have a look on thread on CA:

Thanks @Jesus_Rodriguez!

Good article. I understand now. That explains why the same mRendu works fine in native DSD mode on my Singxer SU-1/ Holo Spring combo, but DoP on Rotel RC-1590.

Anyways, as the OP on that thread says, can I use this threat to request native DSD on the Rotel RC-1590? Thanks!

Yes, I have the information.

There are a lot of people that confuse DoP with Native DSD they are different. Thanks for explaining this @Jesus_Rodriguez!
