Why can I see 384kHz from the list of available format in Mac?

The AMI MUSIK DS5 support up to 24bit/192kHz and thus, you should not select 384kHz in Mac.

In Windows, it is possible to remove the 384Khz from the list of the available formats in the system because the players, such foobar, to play DSD would use ASIO or they would join directly to the WDM driver ignoring the Windows Audio Settings.

In Mac the driver needs to declare all the available format to be used by a player (even though the hardware could not support it).

Therefore, the main reason is that in Windows ignore the players while Mac does not.
