AV Studio > DSD to Marantz PM7000N via DLNA

Installed the new AV Studio.

DSD to Marantz PM7000N via DLNA still does not work.
Very disappointed this is not getting fixed.

Unfortunately it’s HEOS related issue. Don’t think it will be fixed any time soon.

Sorry but how do you know this?

I’ve been through this with the developer many times. Every other piece of software has no problem to send native DSD as is to these HEOS devices. Expect this software.

It’s been discussed before, @Antoine even reached out to Denon/Marantz. The reply was that pretty much Audirvana would need to implement HEOS compatibility.

With full blown UPnP server it’s a different story. Audirvana is not full blown UPnP server, nor can it control third party servers like Minim. It can just play to UPnP compliant devices.

Yes that’s what he said.
Not accurate though.

AS 1.3 does not fix this issue.

Sadly AS 1.5.7 and every version before it still doesn’t play DSD to Marantz PM7000N, only faint white noise.
Also the device doesn’t get recognized as native DSD capable via DLNA.
Older Marantz devices do get recognized.

I hope one day Audirvana can learn to ignore what the vendor DLNA implementation is telling it perhaps incorrectly. Just like it can now regarding volume control, apparently.


Hello @VoyagerDude ,

We are aware of this and we are very sorry about this situation. This HEOS stuff is definitely a really custom UPNP implementation and until we have not implemented the part for the DSD recognition of HEOS, this issue will go on. We don’t have an established date for the implementation in Studio at the moment.
