DSD Playback Mode offers two options in my setup (non-I2S DAC): DSD Direct and DSD over PCM (DoP). I selected DSD Direct, the default. I then checked Output Device and switched it from HDMI Out to USB: USB Audio Codec. For whatever reason, I’m pretty sure I didn’t have sound until I installed one of the equalizers. I’m not sure because I was using Adagio for violin, strings & organ in g by Albinoni, a notorious soft piece of music for the first half of the 20ish minute long piece.
If I try to glean what’s going on, I’m running the output through a Behringer sound card connected to the Pi via USB port. I’m guessing the equalizer is just noise, given my geezer ears.
I then did the version upgrade to 2.806. Everything works the way I’ve come to expect. Thanks for your comments and attention. I truly appreciate it.
Now I have to figure out how to change language to allow WinSCP to see diacritics properly.
