Streaming DSD on Yamaha MusicCast speakers

Hi there. I have a pair of Yamaha MusicCast 20 (WX-021) speakers in a stereo configuration through my MusicCast Controller app. I have music on my NAS server. It’s organized in three folders: DSD, FLAC, and Apple lossless stuff.

In my MusicCast app I’m able to navigate through the folders and play all the Apple lossless stuff. But when I navigate to the Individua albums on the DSD folder, it says “no music.” I’m other words, none of the pieces are there. It can see the album, but not the actual dsf files. Any ideas?

MusicCast is supposed to be able to play 2-channel DSD up to 11.2MHz.
Thanks Very much.

What does Yamaha say about this when you contact them?

If you haven't done so, this should be your first step. Let them know you have other files such as MP3 and FLAC which are in similar folders on the same drive which you can play back without issue, but you can't play these back.

I can't tell you how many features that never come to reality I have seen over the years, and this could easily be one of them. Or, you need to upgrade firmware, or your most recent firmware upgrade took that feature away.

But, definitely reach out to Yamaha, because they should have the best answer. Key word: SHOULD

Good luck!

Wow, was I that dumb?! Looks that way. For some reason I was absolutely convinced these stream DSD.

I’ll contact Yamaha And verify.
