Right, thatís the one, is the best thing I could find to work with my work computer, with no access to permissions to use anything with a dedicated driver.

Probably need an infrared thermometer to see how hot it really is, and if itís anything to be concerned about. My experience with holding a finger on something hot has shown that I can hold on if itís less than 138 degrees.

protip: the sa9227 runs hot because of the internal regulators.

If you disable it and use an external regulator, the heat is significantly less.

You can use the SA9227 without installing a driver in Windows 7 , but I think that it sound better with the driver installed, also, the frequency is limited to 96Khz without the driver, as the SA9023,

But can go up to 384Khz with the driver installed, foobar2000 plugins , ASIO proxy etc...
