Roon 1.6 DSP Upsampling to DSD


Is it me or did they remove the option to upsample to DSD in the new 1.6? I just have the option to upsample to go PCM 768 and I used to be able to pick true DSD512.


Is your device DSD capable? If yes, the DSD upsampling option should be there.

It is still there, I use a DSD capable Holo Spring L3 dac.

Yea that part is still there and looks fine. It’s when I go to the DSP settings and I used to be able to choose DSD and then the rate of DSD. I’m not seeing that…unless I’m blind or wrong…:grin:

And yes my Oppo 205 is capable of DSD512

It is in sample rate conversion, has the Oppo recently been updated and introduced any lack of DSD support?

Nope, only change is in 1.6. Oppo is fully updated and was fine before.

Can you post the screen I have?

On the Sample Rate Conversion drop down list I used to have a DSD option and was able to choose which rate. That is GONE! However I do use HQplayer as well but I still like testing and comparing with the DSD settings in Roon.

Ok so I found the issue! I had changed the volume setting from “Fixed” to 'DSP" so that I could adjust it down when using the Oppo as pre amp. It’s now back and working fine. I did not realize that would turn off the DSD up-sampling…learned my one thing for today, so back to listening it is…:grinning:

Did we loose the ability to upsample to DSD in the DSP section?

Edit: changed the graphic to be more illustrative.

That’s up-sampling to PCM. I was able to upsample to true DSD and pick a rate such as 512.

@Benjamin_Gold Didn’t you already ask this here?

Didn’t do a good job with the first screen grab. The new one should be more instructive.

Yes and now I’m providing feedback that it is missing.

Ok yea, I lost the DSD option in the drop down. I had it before the 1.6 update.

I have an Oppo 205 with all updates and it was there in the previous version.

I still have it as an option.

Check your settings in Device Setup > Show Advanced.

I don’t use it but it looks like its available.
