Chord 2qute no change color


Recommended Posts

My name is Andrea and I greet all those in the forum . Please I need help .

I have a dac Chord 2qute hd , with coaxial and optical connection converts well and changes color.

With USB connectivity it does not convert , and always red.

I thought it was DAC problem but I sent in care and Chord works well .

The real problem ' my Macbook year 2011, I do not know if and ' too old and usb can not ' get out of HI - RES signals and DSD .

Or do I have to set audio midi ? Many Tanks if anyone can help.....Andrea

 

Many thanks , if anyone can 'help .

What software are you using for playback?

 

With iTunes (and some other software) the output is set to the rate shown in Audio Midi.

 

Other applications such as Audirvana and Pure Music will track the output rate and change it to suit the current track.

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.

I listened test file on the " OPUS3 " site dsd with my Macbook Pro, but the light of dac should automatically change when the sampling rate changes .

Instead the light is always red , that ' 48kbps .

 

Yes but what software did you use to play the file?

Itunes

If using iTunes you have to set the bit rate in Audio Midi manually before opening iTunes.

 

iTunes also doesn't support DSD files.

 

You should probably explore some of the alternative playback software such as Audirvana or BitPerfect, etc.

How do you select a program to use to listen to everything?everything?

Generally people experiment... All the paid for software has a demo version.
