I'm trying multi-channel playback of DSD using MCHStreamer.
OS was Windows10 PRO 32bit, and foobar2000 and JRiver Ver25 were used.
PCM multi-channel playback is possible, but DSD becomes 2 channels.
DSD is a DSD64 sound source with 5 or 6 channels.
How do you play DSD multi-channel in the firmware and driver development environment?
Also, if someone else has succeeded in DSD multi-channel playback, please give me advice.

Not sure what could be the issue but we know it's working fine.. :-)
Are you convinced that you're using the ASIO drivers? (and not the WDM). What did you connect to the unit (DSD pin). WIth the limited info, it's unfortunately hard to guess.. :-)

Of course, the driver I use is ASIO. (MiniDSP_UAC2_v4.67.0_2019-08-15_setup.exe was installed.)
The firmware is MCHStreamer_0i8o_sn16_DSD_v1.6_up.bin.

I am using an oscilloscope to observe the DSD output signal of the MCHStreamer board.
Ch1 and Ch2 output DSD signals, but Ch3 and later are logic Low (0V).
The status bar of foobar2000 shows 5ch and DSD64.

Attach image files of foobar2000 and device manager.
Is there a problem?

UNfortunately unsure what this could be here (can't see any of the pics unfortunately as it's formatted down by forum)... We're using multichannel DSD fine here in our setup... :-(
Are you 150% sure that a)foobar supports multichannel b)you're using a multichannel track?

Thank you for reply.

a)
I'm not sure if foobar supports multi-channel DSD playback.
Please tell me the playback environment (OS, software, settings, etc) of Devteam.
The playback environment is reproduced here.
Please give as much detail as possible.

b)
The file being played is definitely a multi-channel (5ch) DSD (dsf) file.
I analyzed the file with a binary editor and confirmed that it was correct.

Thank you.

@zY4Td2X6grYmbhPM

Sorry for the late reply. I think that something went wrong in the latest build that caused some issue. Thanks for pointing this out!
Please check the latest build online. It should solve your issues.

Thank you.

I tried a new firmware immediately.
I played 5ch and 6ch DSD files and confirmed that the signal was output.
I'm really looking forward to listening to the sound from the speakers connected to the DAC.

Thank you very much. :laugh:
