I wouldn't recommend this DAC. It sounds good(when it works), but at this price, almost every DAC sounds good. However, the USB interface in the DAC is troublesome, I tested it with many softwares, PLEX, ROON, Jriver, Foobar, I tested it on both MAC and on Windows. The USB interface doesn't report its bit-rate capability correctly to MAC, as a result it cannot play 44/16 bit files on a MAC; and the USB interface doesn't accept DSD from Windows. Maybe it's just that I got a bad unit, but I don't know where to get warranty. Massdrop customer service refereed me to the community discussion for help...

Sorry about the late reply, I just received my unit. I use it with Roon and have not experienced any issues playing DSD or any PCM format (mostly 24 bit/44.1) files on Win 10. The only thing irritating , and it occurs with all devices, when powered off Roon looses track of the driver .
But to your question: In Roon there is a flag under device setup to "Work around devices that misreport capabilities". Just turn it to "Yes" and see if that fixes the issue.
Good Luck and I hope you've still got it - I really enjoy mine.

Thanks for the information.
I did try your suggestion and still no I cannot play 44/16 WAV files. All other formats are okay. Under windows, DSD playback is limited to DoP not native.
