When I play dsf file with network bridge as end point, initially it will sound as white noise instead of music. I have to pause it for a second then play again to fix the noise.
What DAC are you using with the Bridge?
It’s a legacy 24/96 accuphase DAC. Connected via AES/EBU. This combo works well with Network Bridge iPad app. This seems like Roon compatibility issue to me.
Does the DAC support DSD or are you using the DSD downsampling feature in the bridge?
Yes indeed. Roon wired lan to NBr downsample to lower than 24/96. PCM downsampling works without a glitch.
Try enabling the resync delay in Roon’s audio device setup for the Bridge. Set it to 1000ms or 1500ms and see if that helps.
It seems to fix the problem when I set to 500.
