Added something extra in RAM Disk panel - a quick feedback to let you know if the RAM disk mount is OK or not. Next up, going to add a link to go to the wiki for troubleshooting tips if there's a failure.

The new storage systems work great, would it be possible to work with Snakeoil?
This is an example of an SSD, an impressive speed, the RAM disk is almost missing!
And...Would it be possible to extend the compatibility with the different DAC´s of the market in order to have a native DSD output?

From a fresh install yes, you can use the NVMe install kernel.

The way the new DSD kernel is designed, it'll work with most DAC. The only issue here is the Amanero USB receiver. It's a hard nut to crack as it doesn't appear to work well in Linux yet. If you get the original board (not copy or fake), and the right firmware version, then it'll likely work.

This is a hardware restriction and is unlikely be solvable by Snakeoil. When looking for a DAC, look for one with a XMOS receiver. That seems to work the best, but as with everything these days - your mileage may vary.

My dac is normal and the chip it contains is the most frequent.
These are its characteristics:

Name: TAGA Harmony DA-300 V.3
Receiver: USB Receiver 
DAC:high-resolution 32bit / 384kHz PCM, DSD USB-DAC (ESS Sabre32 Reference ES9018K2M with patented Time Domain Jitter Eliminator and SA9227 chip)
Async: YES
Tested Versions and Platforms:Work perfect in DSD 64,128,256 with Windows7, 10, drivers ASIO and Foobar2000
Comments: It does not work in DSD mode, it goes to PCM and in DoP mode.
