BTW if you did the same thing with a PCM and DSD source the result is the same, but you would need an OTTO_II (or equivalent) to test that.

Also I just want you to know I appreciate your intent. I don't mean to sound too critical.

I have not had any issue with any player that I have tried with my firmware so far, and I have no reason to suspect I would unless that player in faulty, in which case why would I want to use it?

I seriously doubt anyone else is doing it exactly the way I am. I wrote my own implementation.

Which player is giving you trouble?
I'm not sure what hobbling means. I have the Buffalo III, but I swapped it for the Buffalo IIISE. You say the player is faulty, but it works fine into another Saber32 DAC Email me and I'll respond with the players and interfaces I used.

Of course it will likely work fine into a DAC wired only for DSD because it never tries to play the faulty PCM... Not sure what that proves.

if you want to wire something for only DSD, then use the B3.

All these DACs are wired to play DSD or PCM and the intent is to play both without regard to the order in the playlist.

Oh? Can you please state exactly which signals are routed to which inputs on these DACs for stereo input that support both PCM and DSD with no switching? Ours follows Dustin's directions.

Here you go:
Bit Clock / DSD Bit Clock
Word Clock (LRCK) / DSD Data Left
Data / DSD Data Right
GND / GND

Saying this as nicely as I can, that does not tell me anything. You need to describe it at the IC level.

I mis-understood the question. On test #1,#2 and #3 I used my Buffalo IIISE as is. The inputs are tied together and auto re-mapping function is on. I don't have the details on test #4 except what I wrote in the first post. He is using what you call the "faulty player" and he is not getting any POPs.

Without the details there is no use in having this conversation at all.
