Topic: Adi2-PRO Foobar DSD playback

Hi all,

I am looking for the correct settings of the DSD playback in Foobar2000 using Adi2-PRO.
I have used the following instructions:
https://diyaudioheaven.wordpress.com/di … n-v-0-9-x/

But this is still very confusing as there are so many options. What is the optimal way to playback DSD?
Right now subjectively the best sounding is DSD:ASIO:ASIO MadIface USB output mode but it seems that the SR is getting capped at 176,4Khz instead of 2822400 Hz. State overview shows DSD as beeing used.

Re: Adi2-PRO Foobar DSD playback

Where do you see the "capped" SR? Mind that some of the audio material may have originally been recorded/processed in PCM (esp. for multitrack mixin/processing).

Maybe it's not capped but the indication/information about the Sample Rate is confusing.

Could you please provide the best practice configuration of Foobar so that I can eliminate any errors through the wrong config?

I am playing DSD128 file now and it shows SR 352,8. File information in the Foobar shows 5644800 Hz.

Re: Adi2-PRO Foobar DSD playback

Im afraid I can't really provide configuration advice for Foobar - perhaps there is a user forum for it somehwere...?

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_St … e-rate_DSD and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_e … Definition

All correct. Relationship between DSD rate and the unit's sample rate is explained in the ADI-2 Pro manual.

Re: Adi2-PRO Foobar DSD playback

From what you have said you are runing foobar in Dop or SACD in foobar is set to PCM output . What  Super Audio CD Decoder Input PlugIn and ASIOProxy foo_dsd.asio are you using all set must be right in Dop or native dsd.
