I've installed the latest USB-DAC driver for X5 3rd Gen and notice it can only support DSD64 via DoP. Is there any plan to make native DSD so it can support DSD128 or even DSD256?

Hello,

As I explained in the other thread, as they're not too many DSD256 files on the market, so our software team has decided not to offer support to it. Sorry about this.

What about native DSD via USB-DAC? At the moment USB-DAC driver is limited to DSD64 via DoP. I can't play back DSD128 as I also got plenty of DSD128 files.

Hello, due to the hardware restriction, we couldn't have it support the DSD128. Sorry about this.

Does it really support DSD64 via DoP using Dac-mode? For me it only supports PCM. Wish it did DSD64 DoP though, like I think the X7 does?

I know that FiiO X5 III doesn't support the DoP option, but I know, that the DoP function can work with this player. It just needs the effort of the developers. Being a player with a DAC that natively supports the DSD why not implement it as USB DAC?

So the X5 3rd gen converts DSD to PCM when using it as USB DAC and DoP function is not supported?

I'll keep my X3 2nd gen then
