Try this one: https://www.sendspace.com/file/uuj56b

Now encoded just at -b 1509 like the second, also 1509 but by DTS-HD Master Audio Suite.

Both work in my Yamaha

Morning,

The 'ffdcaenc stream' still sounds garbled and crashed/locked-up my Oppo.

By contrast, the 'DTS-HD Master Audio Suite' stream played perfectly!

The problem is in your Oppo.
As tebasuna51 may confirm, all the DCA elementary streams generated by ffdcaenc receive the OK from the Verify Button of the application DTS-HD StreamTools. The decoder in your Oppo expects some, let's say, "details" that are present in the streams created by the licensed encoders but are absent from the streams created by ffdcaenc

But that does not explain why DTS streams created by other DTS encoding softwares work perfectly fine...

other DTS encoding softwares — please name them.

The Master Audio Suite is from DTS, Inc. themselves.
Minnetonka Surcode is licensed and certified by DTS, Inc. themselves.
The DTS plug-in(s) for Pro Tools: idem.

żAm I missing something?

Yes, it does.

1) quoting the author of the original source-code of dcaenc:

«this encoder uses only the most basic compression techniques defined in the DTS specification,
and thus cannot win any comparison with commercial DTS encoders.»

Indeed... We already know all this.

It's a shame that development has gone quiet since the last release.
