Sorry to bump this thread, but it was the most appropriate one I found.

I am getting my head around all this DSD stuff and what a DSJ can provide for me (I don’t own one … yet.)

Anyhow, apart from Roon, is there anything else out there that will send native DSD files/data to the DSJ via Ethernet?

Like amgradmd, I don’t want to run a long USB cable from my PC and in any event I can’t.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum!

The Bridge cannot accept Native DSD streams.  DSD files have to be wrapped as DoP files.  That just makes them look like PCM files so they can be transmitted over UPnP but they are still true DSD files (not actually converted to PCM–the DS will treat them as DSD files).  A number of programs can do that (Jriver Media Center, minimserver, etc.). The Bridge is limited to DSD64 (single rate DSD).

Thanks for the reply Steve.

I might start a new thread with some basic questions so I don’t run into any gotchas

Thanks

Andy
