Issue with 192khz Files

I’m having a weird issue which I can’t figure out. I have my pc connected to a Marantz av8805 via HDMI. All works well except for when I play 192khz files.

When I select a 192khz file the Marantz switches to it’s Heos streaming app to play the file. I’m not sure if it is because I have waspi selected instead of Asio? Or that I have it selected through the Marantz AVR (nvidia high definition audio) option. I do see the Marantz in there several other times as an option and wonder if that is reflective of all the hdmi connections and maybe I have to find the one where the PC is plugged in? I’m attaching a picture of what I see and hopefully this makes sense.

If it helps, I did notice an interger mode message scrolling along to the left of the song. Not sure if there is some setting that needs to be adjusted. But as soon as I select a 192 file on the hdmi input I hear a quick click then it goes mute,

Most likely your are experiencing an Hdmi handshake issue which causes all types
of unexplainable playback issues. I had an issue when playing SACD’s. I would get crazy
drop outs all the time with multiple players
going through a Denon Avx7200. I sent the
receiver in 3 times for service and they changed boards and replaced the receiver
and it still dropped out. I decided to call
Oppo and they said to disconnect the
monitor out hdmi going the tv and it worked.
Somehow, there was a handshake issue caused by the tv which caused the
SACD’s to drop out. Makes no sense but
its true. It took 3 months to figure it out.

The only reason that I don’t think it is a handshake issue is because it is somehow routing to the Heos app in the Marantz to play and prior to the pc being hooked up, I had a PS4 hooked up to the same input for years without issue, I really think it has something to do with the integer/mute setting and that is why I was getting the scrolling message and the stopping of playing.

Try to set the max sample rate in Audirvana to 192KHz.

I thought it would be helpful to post the debug log. And the scrolling message I receive is “unable to change integer setting”. I also can’t find the setting in the settings menu…

Every device which use Heos have this issue because of a the UPnP/Heos implementation in the DAC. Unfortunately the only answer we got for the development team is to implement Heos in Audirvana and it will require some time to do it as it’s not our main priority for the moment.

Bummer to hear, but good to also know that this is because of the Heos implementation and no reason to keep banging my head against the wall trying to figure it out. Sounds like the only fix is with the development team at Audirvana. Thank you again for the response

Just making sure there’s no other way to get the 192khz files to work? Just confused because the 96khz works without issue, and my Marantz can support 192khz via the hdmi. There wasn’t anything in the bug log that raised a red flag?

have you tried with usb to see?

Me again…
this is a picture from my DAC manual…
not the same as you… me, i’m on a Mac… so, nothing as you, but…

The Marantz doesn’t support usb playback via a pc. All other formats and kHz rates up to 96khz play fine through the PCs hdmi out.
