Audirvana 3.5 does not recognize DacMagic 200M as being DSD capable

I acquired a Cambridge Audio DacMagic 200M for its full MQA support and DSD capabilities.

Unfortunately, Audirvana 3.5 [Audirvana Mac Version 3.5.50 (3580)] does not recognize the 200M as being DSD capable.

If I play back DSD through Audirvana, the DacMagic recognizes that I’m playing DSD (one of its DSD lights turns on) but Audirvana lists it as 24/352.8kHz. And sometimes, distortion is audible.

My previous DAC (iFi iDSD Signature) was recognized, and Audirvana was able to upsample playback to DSD, which was a capability I appreciated.

What to do?

check if your DAC is set to DSD over PCM 1.0 if your DAC goes to DSD128
or DSD over PCM 1.1 if it goes higher rates…

Thank you, that sorted it. DSD sounds GOOD through the DacMagic… :grinning:
