I updated the firmware when I first received my unit 2/3 weeks ago , but not since. It may be that the new firmware is the issue as you suggest.

What do you mean complex? :-)
If you use foobar, there is no other way...

Since both driver and firmware were updated in the system I tested I have no way of knowing which one broke DSD play or if it is both not playing along.

I did not update to that level. Last update I did was prior to those dates (which is before Nov 18).

The latest firmware update seems aimed at reversing the channels... Not sure if I want to try :-)

DSD works fine for me with the Buffalo24 with the new driver and the older firmware. I have only just seen the post about the new firmware released yesterday so this is not yet installed.
However, this Left/Right channel inversion issue has been driving me crazy all afternoon as I have been getting the correct L/R channels on PCM using DS Amanero Output, Inverted when I use Wasapi and correct PCM through Foo.dsd.asio with an inverted DSD.
Perhaps I need to install the latest firmware to make this all consistent? I believe there will always be an inversion when playing DSD and have a switching scheme using relays in mind for this; However, the rest needs to be consistent? I have not even tried my Linux based players yet!

Yes but I dont want to use foobar, I'm happy with JRiver and should be able to use it in DSD mode, my exa U2I/JRiver doesn't have all these firmware and update issues. This is not a finished product , it might be cheap but I'm ready to ditch it unless the issues get sorted.

Latest versions of J River support DSD/DSF, and this is what I am planning to do with my Amanero as well. I got my board, but I am in no rush - I'm waiting for most of the firmware and driver issues to shake out.

Your not going to do it with the latest driver/firmware . Frustrating no support or feedback from Amanero here.

He is aware of the problem and hopefuly will have a fix for it soon.
Next version of the update tool should have a rollback function.

The Amanero has the advantage of sharing PCM and DSD on the same pins, eliminating the need for hardware switching...
The info on EXA says the pins on PCM and DSD are not the same...

There is no standard way to share PCM/DSC pins, thus the channel mapping problem. Only some dacs are capable of accepting PCM and DSD on the same pins, the ESS9018 being one of them.

Hopefully someone in the industry would come forward and set a standard mapping.

But I agree, the Amanero needs a few cycles of polishing. Not a big deal for diy types like us :-)
