No Audio With Schiit Unison USB

Recently upgraded my Bifrost to Unison USB and now I have problems with audio. Audirvana recognizes the DAC and the DAC makes a clicking sound whenever I start or stop Audirvana. However, there is no sound. I got it to work once by restarting computer but now it’s not working again. Running latest Audirvana on latest MacOS. Any ideas?

Hello @music4me,

Can you send me a copy of the “Debug Info”? You can get it in Audirvana Settings>General>Debug Info

Note: By clicking on the Debug Info button, Audirvana automatically copies all its content, all you have to do is paste it in response to this message

Here it is. Thanks!

Thank you for the debug info, can you try to go in your audio output settings in Audirvana to deactivate Integer mode?

Shut off integer - no change :man_shrugging:

I deselected “mute during sample rate change” and have audio now (with integer mode on). Let’s see if it stays working…
