Ubuntu Server Native DSD?

Dylan, I’m not able to play DSD natively in Ubuntu Server 18.04 (latest). My DAC supports native, but it is no longer an option in the DSD playback strategy dropdown. I installed Ubuntu Server with these packages:

sudo apt install curl ffmpeg libasound2 cifs-utils

Any ideas?

Hi @anon20084133,

Can you confirm the exact model of this DAC?

Were you able to do native DSD with this DAC on other Linux systems?

MSB Select II with ProUSB input module. Yes, able with Ubuntu Desktop 18 but not Ubuntu Server 18.

Hi @anon20084133,

Native DSD is based on the Kernel version, if Ubuntu Server 18 uses an older/different Kernel, this could explain the discrepancy.
