Apologies if this isn’t the most appropriate forum to raise this query but it relates to playing DSD files to my Directstream, so it seemed right…
I’ve just uploaded some of my SACDs to my Synology DS212J, which is a few years old with 256M of RAM and a 1.2ghz processor.
I’m streaming the files to an Auralic Aries, controlled via the Lightening DS, and onwards via USB to my DS.
Whilst I can play all of the tracks and the sound quality is superb, I’m having problems selecting tracks from Lightening DS. I either have to select the track multiple times before it plays or I have to find a different track that works and then go back to the one I wanted, either directly or by skipping to it.
Once a track is playing there’s no problem and I can skip up and down an album with no issue - it 's just when I try and jump directly to a track. And it doesn’t happen every time - sometimes it’s fine.
This problem has only started since I uploaded my SACDs - it wasn’t a problem on standard or hi Rez PCM files. And I’ve rebooted and deleted and reinstalled my library a few times.
I’ve dropped an email to Auralic but I’m wondering if the problem is with my NAS? Do I need a NAS with more processing power to properly play DSD/DFF files? Does anyone on the forum have any experience playing DSD files from older Synology NAS drives?
