MPD from git/master, Debian testing x64, ALSA, USB audio interface without hardware mixer.

Playing sample *.dsf files works but there is no software volume control. 0 mutes audio. Volume control on other codecs ok. No errors in logfile.

        name            "Lexicon Omega"
        device          "hw:Omega"

MPD has no code to change the volume of DSD. Until somebody volunteers to figure out how this works, this feature won't be available.
