New DAC Waversa VDac ROON Downsamples Inputs

Roon Core Machine


Networking Gear & Setup Details

Asus ac5200

Connected Audio Devices

Waversa VDac built in bridge

Number of Tracks in Library

199,000 tracks

Description of Issue

Ethernet bridge receives downsamples from core not native DSD

USB downsamples DSD at core also

Is the USB connected to a PC or Mac? If PC, you should install Windows drivers and use ASIO connection.

Assuming the DAC is DSD capable:

The first screenshot looks like a misconfiguration of the device in Roon or the endpoint internal setup.

The second screenshot with “OS Mixer” indicates the wrong output is chosen in Roon audio settings.

I have connect three Waversa products that I have. All are Roon ready and none will have Roon pass a native DSD signal. They are all down sampled to low resolution PCM. Can someone from support please advise me? @noris

I have magically seen DSD256 appear in the Roon device setup screen for first time and I have been able pass native DSD. So all is good for now.
