the matrix pipeline on the correction option is not opening the drop down menu to chose my DAC, I supposed my particular dacs are not supported at this time.
Same with me, no entries in the drop down...

I'm also having issues getting my Cayin RU7 playing upsample DSD files on HQPlayer on the ASIO drivers, I can get working with WASAPI but I can only get upto DSD128, any suggestions?

Yes, use a rpi4 as a NAA then you bypass Asio driver and wasapi

I never had any driver issue with NAA with my cyan 2, mojo 2, Cayin ru6, dsc2, ifi pro idsd……

Yes the list is not very long but I guess it is quite time-consuming to create these corrections.
I am not sure if there is something like a "wishlist" for DACs so Jussi had some information which DACs he could prioritize.

Edit: When I look at the list, it seems that Jussi owns all these DACs by himself. So this could mean to add a new DAC to the list he would need this DAC (e.g. as loaner) for some time in order to perform the measurements/tests for the corrections. This is only speculation, I do not how Jussi plans to expand this feature. Maybe he can drop some thoughts about that? @jlaako

you guys that have tried DAC Correction, do you feel its better than higher DSD rates without the DAC Correction?

Depends on what your computer is capable to do really. Between 256 with correction and 512 without, I will always go with 256 with correction. Would be a different question if you are referring to lower rates say 64 with correction vs 128 without…

For Cyan 2, DSD256 and DAC Correction on was highest performance, IMO. Better than DSD512/Correction, which I could also compute without dropouts. I couldn't do DSD1024/Correction without frequent dropouts.

I know at the end of the day, it’s everyone’s subjective preference but there’s almost absolutely no reason to go beyond dsd512.

Dsd512 with correction can be nice for certain tracks and I switch between 256 and 512 on the fly a lot.

256 with correction at times can be a touch too forward for certain tracks…

So I need to get a streamer to be able to get my RU7 to play higher rate DSD files?

If one likes, it can be called an HQP specific (NAA) "streamer". :wink:
