Audirvana 2.0.2 + M2Tech EVO DAC problem

Hello.

I have this problem: I use Audirvana 2.0.2 + M2Tech EVO DAC + OSX 10.9.2 Mavericks and when Audirvana plays a file with a "standard" resolution (16bit/44khz) and then a file with a different resolution (eg. 24bit/192kHz ), and vice-versa, the player stops and doesn't play the next file (with different resolution).

The only way to restart it is to press the "stop" button: the audio device is "released" and the player begins to play any file type with any resolution. But every time I want to switch from files with different resolutions I have to press the stop button. Is it normal?

Any suggestions?

You must disable Direct mode in Audio System Preferences, and be sure to disable limit max bitdepth to 24 instead of 32 to ensure Integer Mode Works.

Direct mode is a hack Damien has to do with Mountain Lionn for Integer Mode to work, is no longer needed in Mavericks or Yosemite

Ah ok, so I have to enable only "exclusive access mode" and "integer mode" and I obtain the max sound quality. Right?
