In need of Foobar setup guide for DSD
« on: 25 Feb 2018, 06:19 am »
Does one exist for the DAC-10H? J River and HQplayer were fairly easy but I can't get Foobar working correctly.
Any DSD file that will play is shown as DSD64, whether an iso, DFF or DST file.

I set this up for another brand of DAC, and my NuPrime DAC-9 ran on the same settings. Try this:

Close foobar2000.

Download foo_out_asio here: https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_out_asio

Download foo_input_sacd here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/sacddecoder/files/foo_input_sacd/

It's been a while since I've done this, but after you un-Zip foo_input-sacd if in that folder you also find ASIOProxyinstall.exe then run that installer. If not, that's OK try moving on to the next step.

Open foobar2000, open the File menu, and click Preferences.
- under Components, click the Install button. Install foo_out_asio and foo_input_sacd.
- click the Apply button and restart foobar2000.
- under Output select the generic or NuPrime DSD:ASIO device. Increase the buffer and bit depth if needed.
- under Output > ASIO double-click the driver to configure it if needed.
- under Tools > SACD select DSD as the Output mode.

foobar2000 should now play DSD formats up to the limits of your DAC. If not, increase the buffer settings, and maybe look in Output and Tools for something we may have missed. Let us know if this works.

Thank you for taking the time to help. Unfortunately, I'm still topping out at DSD64.. I may consider purchasing a J River license.

I found the NuPrime instructions for DSD on both JRiver and foobar2000: http://www.nuprimeaudio.com/ufaqs/how-to-play-dsd-on-nuprime-device/?v=7516fd43adaa They go into more detail including naming the NuPrime driver. Even if you buy one of the others, I encourage you to keep trying to get foobar to work the way you want it to, as you may still need it sometimes. It's a very powerful app.
