Description of Issue

ROCK is converting DSD signals to PCM I can’t find any settings to enable native DSD
The Gaia and DSD DAC do not appear in audio path as they should

You are using System Output as the output device, which does not support DSD. You need to select a more specific device. If that doesn’t show up, you may be missing a driver.

I’m using the driver that Denefrips (Gaia) provided for the computer. What driver would I need for a windows 10 machine?

I guess that should work. What devices do you see available on the machine when you go to audio settings?

Problem solved. The first time I tried to select the Gaia as the output device, it failed. I went to the Notebook setting. The solution was using the Gaia as the output device and then configuring it.
