Rebooting solved the problem.

Thanks

I hope you'll forgive me for my lack of knowledge, but I'm evaluating several DACs using a MacPro and your software. One question I have is how your software handles a file whose sample rate is NOT supported by the Dac. As an example, using the USB port on a NuForce Icon HDP, when I attempt to play an 88.2 kHz song I get nothing. I am, however, able to play a 192 kHz song, which I assume is being down sampled. Note, that when I use other audio players, I can play the 88.2 kHz files.

Just trying to get a handle on this digital world.

Thanks,
Terry

I haven't heard of this problem with Lion. Please try increasing the buffer sizes as outlined in http://forums.sbooth.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=4743
The problem seems to have returned...only with 96/24 files and above. When I try to increase the buffer size I get a command not found error

I seemed have fixed the issue by uninstalling a trial version of Pure music , I guess they don't play nice together.....for the record the same songs skipped on Pure Music as well.

Sadly, this isn't because of a bug or oversight on my part, but rather that Apple decided to remove this functionality from the USB audio driver. This means that hog mode will still work, but it is no longer 100% certain exactly what data is being sent to the DAC.

I haven't had any other issues, including with automatic sample rate switching.
I'm using a FireWire DAC (Apogee Rosetta 200) and am currently running Mac OS Mountain Lion 10.8.3.
So, although I'm not using any USB port, according to my log file, there doesn't seem to be any integer output either.

Everything else is working fine and I'm very happy with Decibel. Just wondering if I'm getting the maximum audio quality possible.

Here is my log file:
