Connecting directly to a Chord DAVE via USB (Curious USB)
Description Of Issue
The Chord DAVE can handle native DSD up to DSD 512. I don’t see native DSD as an option, nor does DSD over PCM seem to handle anything over DSD256. Is there any way I can get a native DSD512 signal from my Roon ROCK to my DAVE?
In addition to DSD512 requiring the Windows ASIO driver, note that the Chord doesn’t actually do DSD. Internally, it converts it to PCM and then plays it as PCM, as their FPGA logic only understands PCM. So you might as well just let Roon do the DSD->PCM conversion for you. Or, if you are upsampling, just upsample to PCM instead of DSD.
