DSD1024 Unrecoverable playback error

I have recently install foo_input_sacd_1.4.8 plugin and trying to upsample my 44.1khz pcm playback to DSD1024 but with no success. Does foobar really support DSD1024? Do enlighten what I could have missed out?

Preference > Tools > DSD Processor > Enable Use DSD processor with
Input (44100)
Output (DSD1024) SDM-D

When I start the playback, I got this prompted:

Unrecoverable playback error: Could not set sample rate to 2822400 Hz

The same setting is playing fine for DSD512 and below.
Did anyone successful with DSD1024 with any other setting on foobar?

I'm having the same trouble. I'm using the Denafrips Ares II DAC with the Thesycon v5.30.0.exe USB driver, latest USB MCU v3.12.0.zip firmware and I am using foobar2000_v1.6.11.exe, foo_out_asio.fb2k-component, foo_input_sacd-1.4.10.zip (foo_input_sacd.fb2k-component + foo_dsd_processor.fb2k-component). I'm using ASIO device for output. Same as you, DSD512 native working fine, but DSD1024 results in "Unrecoverable playback error: Could not set sample rate to 2822400 Hz" message.

You need "ASIO+DSD support (foo_out_asio+dsd.dll)".
"foo_out_asio" "foo_dsd_processor" does not.

Super Audio CD Decoder 1.4.x (foo_input_sacd.dll)

I managed to play the DSD1024 upsample from Foobar, but my DAC is indicating the sample rate is DSD64. Not sure why. I've attached some screenshots. Any ideas? I'm going to try JRiver and Audirvana to see if it's Foobar or a DAC related driver/setting.

Have you tried the settings I have shown?
This is the basic setting (Play True Native DSD).

I've attached some screenshots with my Foobar config. I've got the SACD Type set to DSD. Is this what you mean by "Play True Native DSD"? I've got "DoP for Converter" unticked, as I understand this means to send the DSD data in a PCM package, for some DACs that support DoP but not native DSD. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm sorry, I misunderstood.
There is no description in readme.txt.

I think it could be the DAC driver, and perhaps not Foobar related. I installed Audirvana, and with the ASIO driver, it shows the DAC can do up to DSD512, even though the DAC website claims it can do DSD1024 (https://www.denafrips.com/ares + https://www.denafrips.com/specs-ares). Also, PCM 1536 is greyed out, even though the DAC specs say it can do it. On the Ares II specs site, it says "NOTE* USB Firmware V3.4.1 - PCM1536 / DSD1024 supports disabled for compatibility with macOS". I updated the USB firmware on my DAC to the latest version, which is v3.12, and that particular version on the website (https://www.denafrips.com/firmware-update-usb) says "Supports PCM1536 / DSD1024" as part of the firmware release. Perhaps the firmware didn't quite achieve that claim, and perhaps when the DAC receives DSD1024 it reports DSD64 instead, and it could well be a bug in the USB firmware/driver, and completely unrelated to Foobar?? I'll keep investigating and perhaps I'll reach out to Denafrips support too.

I think that's the best idea. :)
