I am using a PS Audio Nuwave DSD DAC with JRiver MC21 for Windows 10 (version just updated). My PC is connected to the DAC via USB cable. I recently purchased 2xHD’s “Audiophile Hi-Res System Test - Great Sampling Tracks Included” recording in 2xDSD format from HD Tracks.
I was playing this new download and noticed during the test tracks that the left and right channels are reversed. I was wondering if other NuWave DSD owners are experiencing this as well or if the problem is with JRiver MC.
If this is a problem with the NuWave DSD DAC DoP input, can we expect a fix?
Thanks for your help.
I’ve posted the issue on JRiver forum.
To troubleshoot I visited the HD Tracks website and played the samples of the test recordings and the proper channels played. This bypassed JRiver MC21. Next I downloaded some *.wav test files for left, right, both channels and played them using JRMC21. When I set the JRMC21 DSP output Encoding to “none” the files played on the correct channels. When I set the DSP output Encoding to either 2xDSD or DSD in DoP format, the channels were reversed. It did not matter whether the DSP Encoding was set to “None” or “2xDSD in DoP format” or “DSD in DoP format” when playing the 2xHD Double DSD test tracks. The right and left channels played on the opposite channel. This was the same for the test tracks where the recordings played bells off center to the left and to the right.
