Audirvana stops playing in a middle of a converted dsd track

Hi,
In some cases Audirvana stops playing in a middle of a converted dsd track.

Audirvana Mac Version 3.5.38 (3568)
macOS 10.15.5 with 16384MB RAM
Playing on Devialet Phantom DOS2 via UPnP (wifi)

I don’t use upsampling. I have set 13Go for the playback pre-load cache.

This happens always at the same time for some tracks (long tracks) and randomly for others.
It happens on all dsd formats, dff, dsf, or SACD iso.

May you help me to solve this issue?

I’ll add the debug file as soon as it happens again.
Otherwise I am truly impressed by Audirvana capabilities and sound quality.

Have you tried to enable DSD over PCM?

@Damien3
As Devialet Phantom does not support dsd it seems that DSD over PCM is not working. (I tried the 1.0 and 1.1 just to be sure)
Is there any log file for Audirvana? Maybe we can find what causes the player to stop.

Why don’t you convert the files to PCM using file conversion program. Just add the converted files to your library.

You can keep the original files for the future, should DSD support come to Phantoms or you get another DAC that supports DSD natively.

Yeah I as thinking of doing this, but as I have another DAC that supports dsd, I would be really happy if I didn’t had to.
Also, as software engineer I don’t like not knowing why ^^
What conversion program would you recommend?

You can try with XLD, it’s free.

Hmmm, if it cannot play DSD, why not just select convert to pcm in dac menu prefs?

This is what I do and when using this the player stops in the middle of the track

@Damien3 can you tell me the SoX parameters Audirvana uses when converting DSD to PCM?
Thanks
