Static in Audirvana Studio (AS) Only

Hi, I’m trialing the “upgraded” version on Audirvana, from 3.5.50 to AS. Everything works fine in the the old version (3.50.5) and I have made no changes to my hardware.

The issue is playing any content above 16/44.1, anything higher I get a very loud static but I can hear the music faintly in the background. Now, if I upsample to DSD64 the problem goes away but AS becomes extremely sluggish, even unusable - just changing the volume can have a delay of 10 seconds.

2013 Imac 3.2 Ghz i5 32gb RAM > Naim SuperUniti Via UPNP

Any ideas?

Hello @nick2413,

Can you go in our audio output settings in Audirvāna Studio and enable the option to not send RAW PCM stream?
