Native DSD. It's the holy grail for some, download and install this kernel to enable native DSD support. Please refer to Native DSD Support in the manual for more infomation.

If you have a Snakeoil activation, using kernel 20190420 (and above) now gives you the power to dynamically configure your native DAC for native DSD playback. Obviously this only works if your DAC supports native DSD, but the Linux kernel doesn't recognize it as such.

The Snakeoil WebApp will dynamically alter kernel to allow native DSD playback (without rebooting). All you need to apply the change is to disconnect and reconnect the DAC. As always, this is experimental, so it's hidden away in the Snakeoil section. This feature will be officially active in the free edition down the road.

That's really great!  I hope it works with my Amanero USB input card. Big Grin
But, where to download?   It's still 20190414

A lot depends on the Combo384 firmware unfortunately. There is a report of successful native DSD up to DSD128, and DoP up to DSD256 on this board. In theory, it might be possible for you to replace that Combo384 of yours with one from Dom? Maybe that's the best way forward.

Of course doing this will void any warranty on your existing DAC. Tongue

Only way is to try and see how it goes. That's all I can do on my side, the rest, it depends on your hardware now.
