DSD on Linn DS plays too fast (higher pitch)

DSD on Linn DS plays too fast (higher pitch)
Hi,
After upgrading my ADS to Katalyst, I switched to play DSF files instead of converting these files to Flac. I switched because for me the original DSF files sound better then the Flac converted file.
But I have a problem playing DSF.
If the first file played on the ADS after turning it on, is a DSF file, then the pitch is too high, hence the file is played too fast. This is also with all DSF files following. But ...
If the next file is a Flac file (or the first played file is a Flac file), then there is no issue with the DSF pitch/speed.
But after turning off the ADS, the above is valid again.
I contacted Linn helpline, but they can not replicate this issue with a DSF file I provided them. Linn did also use Minimserver to serve the file to their ADS. So, Linn can not help me.

I have no idea why Linn is not having this issue, but I do.
I have no idea what causes this speed anomaly.
Is it the player (ADS) or is it the musicserver?
Is it settings in Minimserver?
I use Minimserver only as a server, so no transcoding.

I would appreciate your help on this.

I don't think this is related to MinimServer. When you don't have transcoding enabled, MinimServer streams the file exactly as it is on disk with no modification.

Strange that Linn do not know what is going on. Have you got the latest firmware?

I am not an expert like Simon but I cannot see how Minimserver could be responsible for this.

I would take this back to the dealer who installed the Katalyst upgrade. It could perhaps be a faulty component, especially as Linn could not replicate it.

Do let us know how you get on.
