    It's what I did.
    Are there any simple instructions as to how to do this?

    It's straightforward enough.
    Once you have Foobar installed,and the DSD plugin added you need to add the files or folder using the dropdown menus.
    Highlight the track/tracks and right click for options.
    Click on convert, followed by "..." and the setup screen opens.
    It's fairly self explanatory.

    Would the Enhanced Digital Output app - work on a Logitech Transporter?

    I've posted a new applet to the 3rd party apps list for Squeezebox Touch. This is designed to enhance the digital output capabilities of the device for use with external Dacs. It is based on the software which people have helped me test on the "Async USB Dac Experiments" thread but should now be suitable for less experienced users to install.

    The app should add support of the following to your Squeezebox Touch:
    - External USB dacs using either USB audio class 1 or 2 protocols [USB 1 dacs normally state they support up to 96k sample rates, USB 2 dacs normally state up to 192k]
    - Support of 176 and 192k playback via the standard digital output

    There are a number of limitations to be aware of:
    1) USB 1 dacs which operate in asynchronous mode probably need an external high speed hub to work without "clicks" - this is due to what appears to be a limitation in the Touch hardware. It is completely resolved with a cheap (<$10) bus powered hub connected between the dac and squeezebox. There is a workaround option which works with some dacs if a hub is not used, but it limits playback to 44/48k sample rates. At present is has only been proved to work with Audiolab/Lakewest dacs.
    2) USB support does not yet support hot plugging of usb dacs - please connect your dac and leave turned on at present [this is likely to improve in future]
    3) 192k playback requires a dac which supports it and is only supported with flac files using native decoding at present. [In future 7.8 LMS and firmware should support 192k wav streaming] It will also require sufficient bandwidth on your network.
    4) Only one output can be selected at once, this means when a USB dac or the Digital Output are selected there will be no sound on the analog outputs.

    The app is called "Enhanced Digital Output" and is the main 3rd party apps list.

    To install, please following the following steps:
    1) Ensure your Squeezebox Touch is running 7.7.x or later firmware
    2) Go to Apps Gallery -> 3rd Party Apps on the touch screen
    3) Deselect the "recommended applets only" option, so that you see a longer list of apps
    4) Select "Enhanced Digital Output" and select it for installation
    5) Your touch should download the app, reboot, then download a new custom linux kernel and reboot again
    6) You should now get a list of possible output devices - this should include "Digital Output" and your USB Dac if it is plugged in, select the appropriate output
    7) Touch should reboot again and then be ready to start playing with the selected output

    If you want to change the output go to Setting > Audio Settings > Digital Output; if you want to change some of the advanced options go to Settings > Advanced > Digital Output

    Please note that if you perform a firmware update, then the app and kernel will need to be reinstalled, this should be automated just requiring you to install the app again or to have the "reinstall after update" option selected from the 3rd party apps list.

    If you want to completely remove the app, then uninstall it and force a firmware upgrade to reinstall the Logitech firmware and kernel.

    Please post your feedback on this thread - I would like to create a list of USB DACs which are known to work with it, we started that on the experiment thread, but I think it would be cleaner to maintain a list here.
    Has anyone tried to use the Enhanced Digital Output - USB Dac and 192k Digital Ouput App on a Slimdevices/Logitech Transporter?

    Thanks!

    Sorry, it's not possible to do this. The Transporter doesn't have a USB port. And the Transporter software is different (older) than that in the Touch, and doesn't have a mechanism for adding applets (like the EDO applet).

    Hi There

    I use the Squezzebox Touch with Enhanced Digital Output connected vis USB 2 to an Audiolab CDQ8300 DA Converter Pre Amplifier. ALAC Files with 16/44100 and 24/19200 works fine but 24/9600 has many distortions, when i start another 16/44100 File it works when i go back start the 24/96000. The LMS is installed on a Mac Mini Server and the Version i am running is LMS 7.92. I try to transcode the ALAC Files to Flac, this not solves the Problem.

    Regards

    I too use a Touch EDO and Audiolab CDQ8300 combination, albeit primarily with flac files and an optical connection. Curious to know why you went with USB and did you see if there was any change with a non-USB connection?

    Hi again, Garym

    One more question, if I may: will the Transporter accept/run Squeezebox plugins such as Spotty or Radio Paradise? And the Apps in http://www.mysqueezebox.com/appgallery?

    Thanks

    Sure. It will run all these. I use Spotty and Radio Paradise plugins among others.

    Thanks again. So, the only applet that won't run on the Transporter is the EDO? Anything else?
