Between tracks I hear a small click, like is usual when changing tracks on any DSD album like I would get with JRiver. Some recordings it is louder than others.
My issue is that I am getting a loud POP that sounds “dangerous” when the album ends after the last track. I tried the same with JRiver and no such POP occurs,just a low click like I get between tracks.
I am using MSB Diamond IV with the Quad USB.
I just noticed this as I rarely play an album to completion but this POPPING sound at the end of an album (or track if I only play one track) sounds very ominous.
I recently had a similar problem - but not so loud. But most prominent (or so it seemed) on my DSD material. I was pulling all my music (DSD and otherwise) off an aging NAS. To my surprise, when I replaced the NAS the effects you described went away.
Where is your Roon (or RoonServer) getting the DSD material from? Local HDD? A USB drive? A NAS? If it’s not a local HDD, you might think about copying DSD files there and playing them from there to see if the problem persists. Good luck.
My issue isn’t the mild clicks between tracks which you are right is loudest from ripped SACD but when only one track is playing and ends or the end of a DSD Album whether it be a ripped one or downloaded and then I get a very loud pop. My speakers have huge woofers and it is a scary pop.
I was able to reproduce using your content on an MSB Analog DAC with Quad USB. When a track ended naturally, depending on the exact length of the track, a variable amount of PCM silence (up to about 0.1 seconds) was being played to the DAC just before we shut off the audio stream.
Many DACs and USB interfaces filter out PCM silence, but this one does not. Keeps us honest.
This fix will be in the next release. When that will be is a natural question but since the answer includes “after stability is confirmed by testing” a firm date probably doesn’t exist. The most that can probably be said is that Brian had an expectation of a new feature release in November, and a release including this fix would be no later than than. If I were a betting man I would back another bugfix release before that new feature release, but that is rank speculation on my part.
We’re hoping to put a bugfix release into alpha testing before the weekend. From that point it’s usually 5-10 days before public release, depending on how many regressions/problems come up in alpha. This fix will not wait for a major release.
