The DAC 8 DSD can't do DSD 512 with a Linux based device like the mR, because it's USB input doesn't have firmware that allows for DSD 512 from Linux. It won't unless new firmware comes out. I believe you are limited to DSD 128 with the mR. You need a Windows based player and the Windows drivers to do DSD 512.


There's a DAC 8 DSD thread on this site that goes into the whole thing in detail .

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

All absolute statements about audio are false :)
