Boss, Volumio and DSD

Recommended Posts

I have on occasion fed DSD to my Boss and Volumio using UPnP.  Audirvana says that the DAC is processing DSD, but what is the truth on this?  What am I actually getting?  Is it being resampled to PCM by Volumio, or the DAC or does it play native DSD?  I'm just interested to know what it is doing.  It played and sounded pretty good in any case.

Nobody?  I can't get a straight answer on this from anywhere.  Nowhere can I see it stated that the Boss doesn't process DSD, but it isn't in the spec either.  And Volumio says it is, or does Volumio show me the input being DSD and then converts it to PCM?  Or does Volumio pass it to the Boss as DSD over PCM and the chip can process it? 

 

Just interested in how it is handled since it does play it.
