Does the display show DSD inputs (or should it)? Everything I've tried is listed as "PCM"

Thanks. It looks like Linux users have to add the device and vendor ID's and compile the kernel from source to enable native DSD.

Is the audio player setting set to ASIO (Native) or ASIO (DoP) mode? When WASAPI mode is set, the DSD is displayed as PCM.

It's a linux system using MPD for bit-perfect playback. The USB vendor and product ID's had to be added to the kernel; now it works fine.

Are you going to buy a balanced cable for the Sennheiser? Does it make all this difference? I have the Topping DX7s and HD6XX and it sounds pretty good without BAL cable... so not sure...

I made my own balanced cable with an OEM HD650 cable and a neutrik 4-pin xlr. Total cost: $20 and 30 minutes

SO a normal HD650 cable has 4 little cables at the end to connect to a Neutrik 4-pin xlr? So the two earths of L & R are connected to the same place on a normal headphone jack? Thanks...

Yep. The stock Sennheiser cable is 4-conductor; you just need to replace the 1/4" with a 4-pin xlr

I mostly notice the volume. The DX7s is a quality dac, so everything sounds really good even through the 1/4" out. I mostly use the balanced (xlr) outs to a power amp with occasional headphone (senn hd6xx and cs598) use.

Thanks. Unfortunately the stock replacement cable is double price here in Australia, Will all HD650 replacement cables have 4 wires and color coded? Will this be ok for the job? Thanks! https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/311435175780?ViewItem=&item=311435175780
