New to DSD64 - Audirvana question


Recommended Posts

Just got my new/used Ayre QB-9 DSD (bought from a CA member!) and got my first DSD64 download, Mozart Violin Concertos on Pentatone


When I play the files in A+ under Preferences / Active Audio Device, I see in green 44.1 through 192 but DSD64 .... etc is greyed out. The playback info does state 64DSD file playing. The Ayre front panel reads 176.


So is it streaming DSD or converting to 176 PCM ?
