    N10 Not recognized by Ayre QX5 twenty in USB

    I have a consistent problem where the Ayre DAC donít always recognize the Aurender N10 wired by USB cable. Itís better when I turn on the DAC first but still not always works. Other inputs such as AES or coaxial donít have this problem. I need the USB to listen to DSD128.

    I have approached both manufacturers for 3 months now but none have workable solutions.
    Before I give up on this pairing, have anyone else experienced such issues?

    Borrow another DAC and eliminate one or the other. We have used the N10 on the QX5 Twenty with zero issues. Also, try another USB cable. Even a crapper.

    Mike, did the Ayre play DSD via USB?

    Aurender is Linux based and isn't DSD compatible with some DAC's, such as mine. Aurender has great support and working on the issue although they make no promises as it's a difficult task with a DAC where hardware can't be changed.

    Most of my music is ripped FLAC/PCM or streaming Tidal, so if I stick with that things work good..
