Classe Delta Pre-amp compatibility

Good Evening Audirvana Community, I am in the process of purchasing and installing Classe Delta series Pre-amp and mono’s with a pair of B&W 800D3’s and was looking to use Audirvana as a streaming source on my Mac Mini with the new M1 chip running Big Sur 11.2.2 connected via USB to the pre-amp for Tidal and Qobuz hi-res audio streaming instead of buying an external streaming device (i.e. Bluesound node, etc.). In discussing with my dealer doing the install, they are completely unfamiliar with Audirvana and unable to guarantee compatibility. Was wondering if anyone on here, either from Audirvana or the community would be able to weigh in on wether or not this would in fact accomplish what I am trying to do.

If it helps, this is what Classe states that its USB-B input can accept/handle:

32k, 44.1k, 48k, 88.2k, 96k, 176.4k,
192k, 352.8k, 384k
DSD64, DSD128, DSD256 (native –
requires Thesycon/Classe driver for
Windows) DSD64, (DoP)

Thanks in advance and looking forward to connecting with the community…

Hello @mikeclack, every DAC that can be connected to your Mac or Windows 10 to USB can be used with Audirvana. If you want to use a ASIO driver, Audirvana is also compatible with it.

You can try Audirvana for 30 days for free using this link to be sure it works with your pre-amp:

@Damien3 thanks for quick response and the clarification! I will be trying out Audirvana for sure…
