I tried playing some DSD files but after approximately ten seconds I get a warbling, almost scratchy sound.
Can someone help me solve this?
Here is a link to my (zipped) log files:
I use an iMac:
Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac14,3
Processor Name: Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 2,9 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 4
L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 16 GB
A Denon AVR-X2300W (AVRX2300W) receiver
Bluesound Node 2 as end point.
The Node 2 is connected with a cable not through wifi.
There is an analog connection with my receiver.
I had the same problem when I was connected through an optical cable.
I listen with my headphone connected to the Node 2 and the same problem appeared.
All my setting in roon are on ‘default’.
Here is my signal path:
Hi @Henri ----- Thank you for the report and the logs. Both are appreciated! To help us in our evaluation of this behavior may I kindly ask you to please also provide screenshots of your audio settings in Roon.
@Eric no problem Eric and thanks for the reply.
Hi @Henri ---- Thank you for the follow up. I must apologies as I should have been a bit more specific when asking for your audio settings.
What I am looking for are the zone settings you are using when you are trying to playback DSD content to the Node2 end point.
I is not clear to me if you want the ‘zone settings’ from the build-In output on my Mac or the zone settings from my Node 2. Probably just from my build-In output, butI will show them both, just to be sure.
And here are the settings from my Node 2
Tried with DSD64 and powernode2 and I’m not seeing this issue. My core is on linux though.
Thanks for checking Steve.
I am still looking for a solution.
Hi @Henri ----- Thank you for the follow up and the continued feedback, both are appreciated! I believe that we have all we need here Once I have some feedback, I will be sure to follow up with our thoughts/findings.
Thanks for replying on a Sunday Eric. I appreciate it.
I’ll wait and see.
@Eric I connected my backup HD directly to the Node 2 and all High Definition Flac and DSD files played without any problem.
I am thinking about re-installing roon. You think that might be useful?
I found what caused it!
It was my network connection. I switched to wifi and now everything sounds perfect. Now I have to see if I can find by trail and error if I can setup a solid network connection.
Hi @Henri ----- Thank you for sharing the resolve here, very please to hear that things have since stabilized. Happy listening!
