32 bit DAC recognized as 24 bit

I’m running a Mac Mini in to a Cyrus 8 DAC (QXR 32bit/768k capable) via USB, but in Audirvana the DAC is only recognized as 24 bit.

Any ideas?

That’s because it’s 32 bit float value, which is 24 bit mantissa + sign, the rest is exponent.

Check the „Limit to 24bit“ setting. You may need to select that when playing 24bit files if it sounds weird.

Interesting article thanks. Even though I’m having trouble with audirvana I learned something today. :blush::+1:
