Re: DSD gets downsampled

1. Use the latest version of MPD.
2. Set log to "verbose"
3. Run a DSD file (dsf or dff)
4. Capture the log and paste it here.

Re: MQA is hot

You don't need to do anything. MPD will pass the files as is to your Explorer DAC. It is up to the DAC to decode the MQA data. You will need to ensure that you use bit perfect with ALSA.

Re: MPD going classical?

With the mentioned solution, there is no need for MPD to store anything in its DB. Absolutely right but I don't like the proposed solution ;) You can still retain the MPD data base and use a client to connect to it. Music streaming is the future. I don't see Max implementing these type of services ...

Re: MPD going classical?

Another server to store metadata and client software - seems to me overkill. I already did some work to query and store embedded graphics. Just tell me the ID3 tags you need ( http://id3.org/id3v2.4.0-frames ) and I will provide some patches for MPD. @Max: is it OK to expand MPDs database? Skidoo, ...

Re: musicpd database not finding opus files

"musicpd-0.18.23 installed"

You are running an old and unsupported version. In the help page, it is clearly states:

"Make sure you have the latest MPD version".

So, update your version to the latest one and try again.

Re: mpd update error

It does not help. What are you trying to achieve? You can play DSD with MPD even if you do not own a DSD capable DAC.

Re: It`s all about DSD & MPD

If I have a DAC that supports native DSD, how will MPD know to send the DSD stream as is without trying to transcode the data into PCM?
