I’ve encountered a rather strange issue, lately.
I usually leave my system on 24x7, except when traveling or when thunderstorms are close by. Such has been the case.
Recently, when I restart my (Mojo modified) Mac Mini and try to play via the PS Audio USB output*, I’ll find that there’s no output at all. When I check the Sound panel on the Mac, it shows the driver as “PS Audio USB Audio 1.0 Output,” instead of PS Audio USB Audio 2.0 Output."
After the required freak-out over not having sound coming out, I can restart the Mini and it loads the correct driver… I think… 'cause I also tend to restart the DS DAC.
This seems to be a recent phenomenon and it’s certainly not a desperate situation (as long as the correct driver keeps loading on restart.) But, can anyone venture a guess as to why this is happening and how to avoid it?
- Sometimes I play from Roon Remote > Roon Server > HQPlayer which uses the PS Audio driver. Other times, without Roon I’ll use iTunes/PureMusic using the ChannelD driver.
