Roon over USB to Mytek 192 DSD DAC issue

Recommended Posts

I'm using Roon on a Windows 10 server over ASIO USB to my Mytek 192 DSD DAC.

 

Issue: If I play a mixed playlist of DSD and PCM tracks, I seem to intermittently lose connection to the DAC, and Roon skips tracks when going from a DSD to PCM track and vice-versa.

 

If I play only DSD tracks or only PCM tracks there are no issues.

 

Any one else experience similar issues?

Apparently I figured out the problem. Apparently with Roon (unlike other software) the track switching was to fast for the USB driver to keep up.

 

So in the Roon "audio settings" I increased the "resync delay" (time between tracks) to 100ms from the default 0ms. I also am sending DSD as DoP instead of "native. Apparently this also makes it easier for the Mytek driver to deal with a playlist of mixed formats/sample rates, as it sees both DSD and PCM as PCM.
