Pi 4 needs to unplug and plug back to work with DAC after restart every time

so I have to unplug and plug my DAC back in every single time I turn my system on in order to make it work… in the device setting, it does show my DAC which means it recognizes it but no sound unless I do the unplug and plug… anyone has this issue and know how to fix this? this is pretty annoying every time now… thanks in advance!

DO you shut down everything? Maybe leave the dac on. Is the RPI on all the time?
