Invalid Audio Format help

Postby xmidnitex » Sun Aug 25, 2019 1:20 pm

Hi guys, I’ve been a member for a few years but inactive for a while due to changes of lifestyle etc. Can’t remember my login and it was on a disused email address anyway. But I’ve got a bit of a problem.

I’ve got a MacBook Pro, Roon, and Cyrus dac xp sig. never had a problem playing hi def music until now.

Now I get invalid audio format appearing on the display of the dac and no music. 44.1k music plays ok. But 96 and 192 it won’t play. I can’t work out why. I’m all up to date with the latest Roon app and all updates on the MacBook Pro.

Can anyone help. Pretty, pretty please.

If it worked before but doesn't now then it's likely to be down to a software update or change in settings. It seems like an unusual DAC fault but you might as well try a factory reset on the DAC-XP anyway.

Yes mate. Could use it absolutely fine before. It’s been a few months since I fired up the hi fi which is my thinking with it being software. But I’m scratching my head as to where it might be.
What’s the factory reset on the dac xp if you don’t mind me asking.

Has anyone else had a problem at all with Roon in the last few months.

It’s not just Roon though, I’ve just checked. Trying to play anything other than standard through tidal doesn’t work either.

Hold the standby button as you switch it on at the mains.

Factory reset didn’t do anything that
