Hi @Karma,

Thanks for reaching out and thank you for uploading the log set, this is very helpful.

I am looking through the logs and I notice issues when you were trying to play to your HQPlayer zone, are all of your endpoints being routed through HQPlayer?

I’m also noticing that you’re up-sampling all your content to DSD, is the behavior the same if you try to use a native driver for a DAC with no DSP active?

Yes. They are.
I use a Mac Mini. Hence no driver is required for the DAC.
With the DSP switched off, no music plays.

If I play music through the Roon Mode, the issues is still the same.


Hi @Karma,

I am not certain what you mean by “Roon Mode”, can you clarify?

The test I was asking you to perform above was to bypass HQPlayer and play to the native drive, you can enable the native driver in Roon Settings -> Audio and then select it from the Zone picker listing.
