Description

I have a portable DAC (HiBy FC3) that is very aggressive regarding energy saving so that when it detects no streaming it turns off. I noticed that on Audacious if I start playing a 44 KHz file and change to a 48 KHz file (and vice-versa), something happens that my DAC turns off. Since this DAC has a fade in when it turns on, this issue can be pretty annoying when listening to a playlist with different sample rate tracks.

This issue also happens on DeaDBeeF and Mpv (both Linux and Windows), however it doesn't happen on Winamp or MPC-HC (either via Wine or Windows native), so I guess there's a way to fix this.

I'm currently running Slackware x64 current.

If switching samplerates causes trouble for your DAC, you can try using the Sample Rate Converter effect to play everything at the same samplerate.
