    Following on from the iFi iCLUB DSD album last week, as promised, the following two tracks are available to all.
    As with the previous recordings, these are all 100% DSD, having been recorded, mixed and mastered directly on the Sony Sonoma DSD Workstation provided by Gus Skinas at SuperAudioCenter.com.
    We hope you like them.
    Thank you again to David for his great work on the DSD recording front!

    If your install still fails to work at DSD256, try "full" un-install and re-install. It happened to me and I got it back up and running properly. It does say this in the pdf (if you and I have the same version). I hope you appreciate the fact that Foobar isn't written by them but they are trying to help others get better sound by offering this tutorial and support. As OP says, it works for me too. Good luck.

    Here is some more instructions to get foobar2000 to work with 256 DSD... a couple changes to the pdf that was posted earlier..
     
    Follow this guide: http://www.audiostream.com/content/how-play-dsd-file-using-foobar2000 [​IMG]
     
    If you go by the directions I would be surprised if you could get Foobar to work with 256 DSD...
     
    in the pdf file at step 11... as shown below :
     
     
    10. Open Foobar2000
    11. Select Components.
    12. Select Playback > Output > ASIO.
     
    Try this instead...  should work for you.
     
    10 Open Foobar2000
    11. Select File -> Preferences -> Components
    12. In the right side panel select ->  Install
    13. Navigate to the Foobar2000 Components directory ( C:\Program Files (x86) -> Foobar2000->components
    14 Select foo_out_asio and foo_input_sacd,   then select " apply "
    15. Close Foobar2000 and open Foobar2000 again
    16. Select File-> Preferences -> select Output-> select ASIO -> select Use 64bit and Run with high process priority
    17. Note that the ifi (by AMR) HD USB Audio is listed as a ASIO Driver
    18. Select OK
     
    Restart Foobar2000 and use as normal...  should work

    Just in case you need a couple 256 DSD files to test your ifi nano/micro then here is a site for you....    wonder why ifi doesn't provide their own test files ??  Sure would help....

    I used this guide and it works fine, I only had no idea about the foo_input_sacd.dll file part (which I know now, is stored in this path ...\Roaming\foobar2000\user-components\foo_input_sacd), but as you see an my photo it works to 100% with DSD256. [​IMG] 
     
  7. Dixter
    yep works in yours and works in mine too...   
     
    looks like there is more than one way to get Foobar to work...   step 11 was just a little off in the pdf...

    Hi all,
     
    For a quick reference quick, these are the most common areas to check that things are setup correctly otherwise DSD playback will be patchy.
     
    Just verify that these two sections are correct.

    Why two RCA lines out on a small thingy like that, why no 3.5mm out ?
     
  10. h1f1add1cted
    There is a 3.5mm out. The RCA is addtional, like connect with a normal RCA cable to an external amp or other device. 3.5mm and RCA are using the same internal lines, so there is no difference. Choose what you prefer.

    I think it is a Digital Output, not a 3.5mm output. [​IMG]

    There is a single RCA digital-out (S/PDIF) on back, two analog RCA out on the front for stereo channels. There is a 3.5mm headphone-out on the front as well.

    Just listening Yahel from iDSD on my XBA-C10, and it sounds pretty amazing. Recently I leave Alpha Dogs and Pan Am at home, because iDSD + XBA-C10 is really great combo, and truly portable. Amazing how much detail these tiny earpieces provide, but only when driven by iDSD. This device is great achievement of iFi's - honestly, and I'm only listening to Vorbis @ 300kbps, and not DSD not even hi-rez, just HQ Vorbis. I think iDSD is truly about quality and not only features like probably other contestants might be... Now I'm thinking maybe to buy some iPhone or Android to use iDSD on the go :rolleyes:

    Hey thanks to all for the advice and encouragement, I got 256 DSD  working. Not sure what was wrong, but I ended up uninstalling and re-installing foobar and the components following dixter's mod of the audiostream instructions. 
     
    Happily listening to 256 DSD and gazing at a magenta light as I write this.
