Streambox S2 Ultra as bridge, connected via USB to a Topping DX7 Pro

Number of Tracks in Library

Description of Issue

The topping DX7 Pro directly connected to Core stream perfectly Native DSD64, 128 and 256, if I use the streambox S2 Ultra it always convert to PCM.

I would stream native DSD via Project Streambox S2 Ultra.

Please find in attachment some picture of Roon / Streambox settings.

Please HELP!

It looks nobody have any idea to help ?

Please could anyone help me ?

Thanks in advance

It’s a shame, one of the most famous software with 0% support!

Just another user: For native DSD a driver of some sorts is usually needed. Does the Linux kernel on the Streambox have a driver for the Topping DX7 Pro that supports native DSD?

I’m not an IT specialist. I bought a roon ready device, it should be roon compliant … I don’t know how to check, any suggestion ?

Hey @marco_Taricani,

Thanks a lot for reporting this. We’d love to help find an answer to this.

Would you please share a screenshot of your Signal Path as you’re playing a DSD file to your Topping via the Streambox?

Dear Rebeka,
Please find in attachment the screenshot.

Thanks you
Kind regards

Hey @marco_Taricani,

Thanks a lot for that!

Would you be able to navigate to the Streabox Web UI settings and setting it to DoP? Is there any change?

No change see pictures.
Of course before test I saved the configuration and rebooted the steeambox.

Hey @marco_Taricani,

We’re sorry to hear that you’re having troubles getting DSD pass through to the Topping. Please reach out to Pro-Ject support for advice on how to connect and configure that device to the Topping for DSD through playback.
