Description Of Issue

No Native DSD mode offered. files are converted to PCM, music plays OK, but i want to know why it does not wirework as native DSD, while before Roon, Audirvana regularly did it, same mac, sam Wadia 322

Native dsd requires drivers, mac usually plays DoP. Go to device setup and select DOP under dsd playback strategy.

Mac does not support native DSD, with a few very exceptions.

If Audirvana worked, you were using DoP.

hey you are correct. i set the DSD over PCM and Wadia show now DSD—thanks for education:-)
