    Sonicorbiter - Native DSD support

    Thanks for checking into it. The 192000 thing is probably a glitch then? Doesn’t really matter practically since it occurs only after reboot.

    Is it limited to DoP or is Direct DSD compatible at DSD 128? Is Direct DSD kind of working but not working correctly? The above clocking thing is happening with DSD 128.

    @vortecjr I stopped, played one pcm for 5 seconds, stopped, then turned DSD128 back on in A+.

    @Em2016 Despite the specs, the sonic orbiter diagnostics, detects a Direct DSD path to the DAC. Direct DSD does work. Interestingly even DSD 256 works. Keep in mind when I send over DSD 256, which is above the spec, it only goes in over Direct DSD. Whether I click or unclick Direct DSD in sonic orbiter, DSD 256 always goes in as Altset 3 which is the "Special DSD" path which is Direct DSD. This is not the case with DSD 128, when Direct DSD is selected, it uses Altset 3, while unselected, it goes in Altset 1. This is suggesting that the sonicorbiter has auto-detected the Stellar Dac USB system correctly as it refused to send DSD 256 DoP which would require bandwidth of DSD 512 which is certainly above the spec of the ESS 9010 chip. However, the chip is spec'd to DSD 256. Keep in mind Jesus confirmed on page 1 that the Nuwave DSD was compatible with Direct DSD 256 which is almost the same DAC and also above its spec sheet input. Regardless I may end up getting a Ultradigital anyway in the end as I've heard good things about its use with PS Audio DACs.

    @vortecjr With the Stellar Dac I've found something interesting. If I reboot the Ultrarendu and then play a Direct DSD 1st thing, the clock in the DAC diagnostics is wrong at 192000. Also, the music is mistimed and sounds a little jacked up. If i play a DSD with DoP, or a PCM file first after reboot, then play Direct DSD, the clock is always correct at 176398 (DSD128). Have you seen this before?

    Stellar DAC is a Nuwave DSD with an analog preamp and larger chassis. Ess 9010 chip. Maybe influence the downstream digital lens reclocking performance ? Noise induced by higher bandwidth in usb cable? Something is going on.

    @vortecjr I have DirectDSD selected in Sonicorbiter 2.7. Playing in A+ and outputing DSD128. PS Audio Stellar DAC. I have noticed that under DAC diagnostics it now reads Playback: Status: Running Interface = 1 Altset = 3 Packet Size = 272 Momentary freq = 176398 Hz (0x16.0cc0) Feedback Format = 16.16 The Altset is now 3 instead of 1 which I noticed is indicated for both PCM and when I deselect DirectDSD and upsample to DSD-DOP. Is that the correct momentary freq for dsd128? Also, the SQ is significantly better with DirectDSD! Could this be due to less work since the Ultrarendu doesn't have to package the DSD into PCM containers?
  10. The expensive servers have multiple internal power supplies for the different components. The Ultrarendu uses the same external power supply to power the cpu/ram/usb output. By using dedicated power supplies you can isolate these pieces from each other.
  11. I am trying to guage interest if there are any micro or ultrarendu users who are looking for an Sbooster Mk2 or specifically the Ultra 7.5V special (designed for the micro/ultrarendu). I have not found any of these Ultra7.5V special units anywhere in the USA. Plenty of Mk2's but no Ultra 7.5's. I have contacted Ciamara and they can order some of the new Sbooster units but there are minimal order requirements If anyone is interested please reply or pm me. I would not be taking funds or distributing, if people are interested I will have you contact Ciamara so then they could order some of these.

    Has anyone tracked down the Sbooster 7.5V Ultra Mk2 Special?
  13. Obviously everything isn’t finalized but what will likely be the compatible voltage range?
  14. @Superdad thank you for the update and all your hard work
  15. Silly question for the experts. Is it better to isolate the router/FMC/switch, whatever one may have, on a separate line from the dedicated AC lines for the audio equipment? Are there any issues with grounding from going on different lines (I know ethernet has no ground wire)? Is this a better option than putting the switch and its power supply on the same conditioner as DAC/amp etc... ?
