I have had that happen when the DAC isn’t properly recognized by the computer.  Look in the Win Device Manager to see if it shows the Combo384 in the Audio section.   Usually a reboot sequence will fix it:  get your DAC powered up, then any USB gadgets and then plug the USB cable into the NAA.   If you have system sounds turned on you will hear the USB is recognized.

To be honest I am too lazy, to go through all the 114 pages.... 

 

But.

 

Is there any reason (consensus?),  to spend a fortune on any really high-end, expensive, very special, customized hardware for Linux NAA, or uRendu, SMS200 Ultra (similar others?) for roughly 2-3k USD including power supplies,  are the most you need to buy if one wants to use DSD 256x or 512x?

 

(in case of DACs like RME ADI-2 DAC, Holo Audio Spring 2 KTE L3, so max 2-3k  USD) 

 

Sorry if it is just too generic question. 

 

You can go with an Intel NUC or one of Jussi’s recommended small, low power computers with the available NAA images.   With a good PSU (everything benies from a good PSU) you get a lot of the way to one of the Ethernet renederers.  I have both a NUC and a SOTM trifecta.

That sudden "ASIO format selector not supported, assuming PCM" message indicates a problem with the driver.

 

@Guf Gufler I've gotten that message on Win NAA when the computer just doesn't connect correctly to the DAC.  Sometimes I've had to do the "restart everything" routine to get proper listing/recognition of the PCM and DSD formats.  I have to have my Lampi DAC up and running, if using a REGEN or other get that started, and then start the NUC NAA.   You can look in the Windows Device Manager to see that Combo and Amanero are both listed, Amanero in the Audio Devices section and Combo in I think USB ports.  If all else fails I'd uninstall and re-install the Combo 384 driver.
