I suppose it depends on whether MM is market leading or following. And whether MM wants to be seen as fully featured.

As a starting point I would be happy for MM to recognise the format so that files appear in the catalogue and can be added to playlists.

Wow, that's an impressive list. Thanks for posting as it will help others who are looking for DSD
support. Although, by "sketchy" and "catching on" I was referring to the "mass market" vs the "audiophile"
market, not so much quantity of program/service support. There are many programs/components/streaming services supporting it, but are enough people using DSD?

So, the question becomes, do the MM devs jump on the audiophile additions to the program as quickly as they
do the mainstream needs? This will determine how long it takes, if at all.
Ultimately, I don't see it natively. Maybe as part of a codec package or plug-in :) .

Yeah, maybe. I guess.
The future of DSD (as far as "really" catching on) is sketchy at best.
I wouldn't count iBasso, as it is a serious high end device and is expected to have the whistles and bells other things don't.

But who knows...Although, it would be nice to have :)

Apparently the next version of the Naim firmware (currently in beta) has support. My iBasso portable player has support.

Although we should add a request for MQA support as well :)

Interesting. Where are you learning/reading about this? Can you post a link to an article on it's "coming by lot's" here?

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean with "sputter the songs"...

Anyway, setting MM to work with Wasapi exclusive to get bit-perfect output and automatic change of sample rate is not difficoult; please look at the last msg. in this thread:

Correct, I guess I need an input plug in. Foobar does DSD automatically but I much prefer the layout of MM. I'm surprised this has not been added yet. I will go Ditto your wish list post.
