Raspberry 3, Hifiberry DAC + Pro and DSD

Post by Govnah »

Successfully installed the latest DietPi and for the most part all works as expected with the exception of DSD playback. I have installed the correct Linux Kernel via the DietPi install and indicates that the correct Kernel is installed to allow for DSD playback, but Roon via DietPi wants to convert everything to PCM. What am I doing wrong?

It appears when volume leveling is enabled, DSD is always converted to PCM.

Please try disabling Volume leveling and check routing path:

Vol leveling on:
Vol leveling off:
