That's bad news. I planned to get the Motu M4 as well for Dirac Live.Any multichannel DAC recommendations for DLBC? I have a Motu 4, but that doesn't work as it presents itself as 2 different devices in Windows.
I tried using HDMI out to my AVR, but couldn't get exclusive mode to work. Without exclusive mode the Windows mixer always seem to be sending something to the subwoofer even though all speakers are set to full range in Windows. I verified this in the Dirac Live volume test and the subwoofer got a signal for the left and right speaker test.
What could work is setting up the M4 in Voicemeeter Banana which can take any sound devices and gives you a virtual multichannel output. I've done this with two DACs to setup a low and highpassed output but can't confirm if it will work with Dirac Bass control.
The only multichannel devices that come to my mind are the Topping DM7 and the Motu UL Mk5.
It appears to me that this whole Dirac live bass control setup works a lot better in MacOS which let's you easily create a virtual multichannel DAC
