I’ve been succesfully streaming from AS to a SONERE network bridge ultraRendu, which is a DLNA/UPnP device. But now, I’m trying to put a Digital to Digital converter between my network bridge and my DAC. The idea is to convert the digital USB signal to a IIS signal to take advantage of the later.
But it’s not working. At first I thought this was about compatibility issues because of the pin layout of the IIS interface. But now, I realize that my new DDC is not accepting all the incoming audio formats. To be more precise, I copy/paste, “USB input (in the DDC) support PCM, DSD via DoP, and native DSD via Linux”
Now, I’m streaming DSD files from Audirvana to the network+DDC combo. Those files are converted to DSD and upsampled to 256 in Audirvana by using r8brain algorithm. So, the question is: those upsampled files I convert in Audirvana to DSD256 are streamed via DoP??? Or could they be considered “native DSD” like???
Apologies for such an specific post, and grateful to whoever may suggest anything. Thanks!
