An even newer version will be added today fixing the "first playback wrong channel" bug!

Thanks to Domenico for the fix - KS seems to be solid in Foobar now.

How do you get DSD to play over KS? I had thought that ASIO was needed for this, which is what I've been trying using ASIO4All.

Install foo-KS and try to play any DSD file. It works as a charm!
The DSD indication should come up at the bottom left confirming the DSD playback.
At least thats what happens to my system.

Thanks for the response Stamatiski, but I must be missing something

Do you mean "foo-out-KS" ? I have this installed, along with the foobar SACD plugin, but need to use ASIO for playback. Selecting KS results in silence from DSD files.

EDIT:

Just installed "foo input dsdiff" and removed the SCAD component and it all works lovely now - no horrible ASIO4All kludge .

Spread the news!!
All we need is KS as the most simple most functional and purest method in Foobar.
May be we could push things for a foo-out-KS update (if needed) since it has not been updated for 6 years now

"foo input dsdiff" only outputs PCM. You can achive the same but better SQ configuring SACD plugin to output PCM.

obviously we are talking about KS as an OUTPUT option. The "foo input dsdiff" as its name states is an INPUT decoder (necessary though to do the job) and NOT an OUTPUT option.

I know, I was addressing dickiegeorge's comment. The only way so far to get true DSD from the combo384 in Foobar is using the "kludgy" route, using DSDIFF one only can get PCM independent of output mode used. No probs with JRiver using WASAPI or KS though.

DSD is not possible in Foobar using KS or WASAPI due to DSP and Volume stages of the player not being ready for DoP and treating the signal as regular PCM. When asked about this they said they have no intention of changing it. I guess they are not interested in DSD.

As I'm on W7 I use WASAPI Event as output.

Can someone confirm that this USB interface is async?

I'm not sure, even after searching the thread for "async"

If yes, it would be a massive upgrade for my DAC (Wyred4sound DAC-2)

Thanks!

Jackal29a thanks for the info.

It makes sense that "foo input dsdiff" is converting the files into PCM which is then handled natively by the KS output. I don't have an indicator for PCM / DSD on my Buffalo DAC (only S/R) so I can't see what's going on. I need to hook up my Arduino for that.

I did feel that DSD played over KS output sounded a little different from ASIO - this would explain why.
