Re: Support for bit perfect playback of MQA files

So you you want Neutron to be able to recognize MQA files and optionally transfer them unchanged to the DAC, should the DAC support this. That would be comparable to the "DSD, DSD over PCM" option for direct transfer of DSD to the DAC. Of course in such a mode of operation no DSP ( Digital Signal P...

Re: Improve DSD file detection and real-time DSD conversion

Also I would appreciate it if full MQA core decoding is offered by Neutron Music Player so that a MQA file can be fully unfolded through a MQA rendering DAC. There are critical opinions, e.g. MQA is bad for music. [...] Hi-fi manufacturers and software developers will have to adapt their products a...

Support for bit perfect playback of MQA files

Unfortunately, it seems Neutron does not seem to support the bit perfect playback of MQA files. I have just bought a Meridian Audio Explorer2 that features both MQA decoder and renderer with LED lights that can also change color depending on whether a MQA file is being streamed through the DAC. They...

Re: Improve DSD file detection and real-time DSD conversion

To the topic, .dsf can hold metadata and .dff should not be able to. Perhaps this is affecting the scanning and recognizing of the DSD files in question. Of the 15-20 DSD albums in my Neutron library 100% of them are in .dsf and tags were added with either MP3Tag on windows or kid3 on Mac. Neutron ...

Re: Improve DSD file detection and real-time DSD conversion

Some DACs do both MQA core decoding and rendering, but others only have MQA rendering capability that needs MQA core decoding software to fully unfold. It would be great if Neutron offers MQA core decoding as an option, since it can recognize a MQA file.

Support for bit perfect playback of MQA files

It seems that certain DSD files, especially files ending by the extension .dff suffix cannot sometimes be detected. It would be very helpful if manual scanning of music files is offered as an option. At present, it seems that real-time PCM to DSD conversion is limited to DSD128 only. Hopefully, real...
