Something is definitely screwy. Likely you are misinterpreting the switch states? Maybe post on the support forum with good pics of the switches etc.

edit: when using spdif bypass it won't play dsd
I don't know what you mean by reclocker in this context - do you mean the jitter reduction (ASRC) in the ES9018 DAC itself?

You don't generally want to turn it off unless you also turn off the OSF.

Just wanted to check before placing my order.
What sort of mast clock are you talking about?

Yes, asrc of es9018.
When I bypass the reclocker(SW2:4) it doesn't bypass the oversampling filter also?

Am I right to assume that the vd power supply input to the cronus is the raw supply for on board voltage regulators? What range of input voltage can it safely receive?
Thanks,
James

Posted this also in the TPA support forum but would like to post it here too.

My B3SE is has the Cronus-Hermes-Amanero stack. Had some trouble but that was all solves (I think). So I decides to put the top on my chassis and therefor I had to put in an other, shorter, usb cable to the back side of the cabinet. I forgot I had removed the bolts between Cronus and Hermus. Result was no sound. I re-soldered the headers of both Cronus and Hermes and there was music again.

Funny thing is that low resolution files play normal as they should. But higher resolution files play for a while, then start to stutter en finally no sound at all.
When this happens the Lock Led on B3SE starts to flicker and then goes out...

Anybody any idea what's happening?

SPDIF is working at all sample rates...

Typically this means something is changing over time. Likely a supply running out of current causing low voltage. Check shunt currents etc - especially the 1.2V (add 27R at R4 to get more current if needed) trident on B3SE.
