Hi all. I participated in the old forum but, apart from the occasional glance, drifted away from it (but not from my Naim gear). A specific problem has brought me back, seeking the community’s experience.
A couple of years ago I made the jump to a server-based system and replaced my CDX2 with an Innuos Zen 2 server and NDS/555-PS streamer. All of the Redbook CDs that I have ripped and any high-resolution content that I have purchased for download, whether DSD or PCM, have played without problem through the Naim app.
Recently I learned that there is a way to rip the DSD content from the SACD hybrid discs in my collection using the Oppo Blu-ray player in my home theatre (search ISO2DSD_gui for details). I have given this a go for seven discs in my collection.
The problem that I’m having is that the Naim app shows and plays much shorter track times than what is on the discs for three tracks (everything else works fine). For example, the 3rd movement of Mahler’s 4th Symphony is 25 minutes, 27 seconds. The Naim app shows 5 seconds, and that’s how much it plays before it moves on to the next track.
The common features of the problematic tracks are that they are long (25 to 30 minutes) and the size on disc is a little greater than 1 GB.
The Innuos music library shows the correct track times. Also, I can stream the files through my Oppo Blu-ray player using its media app. So, this would appear to be a playback issue with the Naim app rather than a problem with data extraction from the SACD hybrid discs.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and, more importantly, found a solution? Does the Naim app just have problems with DSF files larger than a certain size?
Cheers and thanks in advance to anyone who has relevant experience to share.
