No sound playing DFF files

Trying Decibel now that it has support for DSD. I loaded a dff album the first day and it played fine. Now when I load same album or single dff files or dsf files I get an error saying they cannot play or they start and I get low level white noise. DSD over DOP ois checked as well as core audio. When the DSD over DOP is not checked no sound is heard.

Any other settings that need to be checked?

DAC plays iso and dsf, dff files with jriver just fine. Rebooting did not help.

Is the equalizer not flat? The equalizer is not compatible with DoP because it alters the DoP bitstream such that it isn't recognized by the DAC.

Thanks for the help, that was it. I had a few settings on the eq not flat of course, but the EQ was not enabled. Once I set all to flat it works on DFF files. Any chance that playing an iso file would be possible on a future version?

I really like the sound on redbook and will probably order a license today. To my ears it beats JRiver for sound quality. Bravo!
