Transcoding DSD on the fly

Unread post by jacobacci » Mon Oct 16, 2017 4:24 pm

Hi all
I am trying to stream DSF files to a non DSD capable UPnP client (Onkyo PR-SC5507 AV receiver). I think (maybe I am mistaken) that Synology Media Server transcodes DSD files on the fly to PCM when it detects a non DSD capable UPnP client. Can anyone confirm whether Media Server actually has that capability?
Or do I have to use MinimServer to achieve on the fly transcoding for DSD?
Thanks a lot
