Hi there

I've got a Fiio M6 which I'm hoping to use as a DAC for my Windows laptop.  Is there a guide for configuring foobar2000 current release (and current plugins) to connect the Fiio M6 in USB DAC mode either using native DSD or DSD-over-PCM, rather than conversion to PCM?  

The M6 specs seem to indicate "DSD64/128,DoP/D2P USB Audio" support ?

Dear friend,

The M6 could play DSD64/128 itself.

Best regards

Thanks for this. Yes - I'm aware that the M6 in DAP mode can play DSD64/128.  That wasn't my question.

My question is does the M6 support DSD content in USB DAC mode?  When I have my M6 connected to a PC running something like Foobar 2000, and use the M6 as a USB DAC, so far I can only get it to work in PCM 44-192kHz mode, not DSD64/128.

The M6 does support native DSD playback without conversion to PCM doesn't it? Is it just that the current firmware doesn't expose native DSD64/128 functionality in USB DAC mode?

The Neutron MP developer is also having issues getting the M6 to play DSD natively from their app, and looking at Android logs they suggest that Fiio Music app on the M6 seems to be converting DSD64/128 to PCM88kHz, and also not running native DSD?

Dear friend,

The M6 doesn't support NATIVE DSD.
