Hi,
My USB cable is 1.2 metres.
I think I am making some headway.
I use msconfig to disable all the start up entries and manage to play one track of 24/96 file without dropout.

I am looking for info to learn how to set up win7 for audio use.
Some useful into here
Computer Audiophile - Computer Audiophile Pocket Server - C.A.P.S. v2.0
Any other link would be appreciated.

Eventually i want to learn linux audio .

thanks

Hey kp,

Just got my Alix 2D2 booted with mpdpup, really not that hard with the wizards that have been created, and it saw the WaveIO no worries, much less worry than waiting for EMS to update the shipping info!


Obviously Lucian, it arrived today!


Waiting to attach to dac, IV stage is yet to be built as yet too, so noise is a little ways off........except I just realized the Wave outputs SPDIF..........hmmmmmm HT receiver has SPDIF inputs...........I will Terminate and be back!


Sometime.......the joys of running your own business!


Don't be scared of Linux, google mpdpup and it is very easy to install to USB stick, should boot from there I think, you may be able to try on your PC!


Cheers,


Drew.

Thank you Drew for update! About EMS, your parcel was dispatched on 15.05.2012 and it arrived today (06/06/12)... and they say about EMS to be a fast service! Not to mention that there were two weeks when nobody knew what's happen to it nor where it is (lack of infos in EMS database). I have three different parcels for Australia that had the benefit of this "fast" shipping and that's enough for me. Costs does not reflect the quality of services thus I think is better to adopt the "standard" alternative for Australia since, compared to EMS, results seems to be the same... but comes with lower prices.
Kind regards,
L

Hi Drew, Thanks for drawing my attention to mpdpup. Very easy to load. I too use Alix with WaveIO. I got sample sound during configuration. It loaded my DB and clearly is playing but no sound. Did you have same problem? I know on VoyageMPD it came up with alsa muted first boot, but I can't find Alsomixer on this to unmute.

Ideas?
Walter

Default mpdpup problem resolved

Turned out to be alsa mute. I could not figure out how to get alsamixer to run. Turns out command
"amixer -c 1"
got it to go. with that, I could toggle mute on each channel and its now perfect, thanks

Highly recommend mpdpup on ALIX board. Nothing could be easier, Download to music in under an hour. And yet you get bitperfect power of linux/mpd/alsa in 60mb on a dead quiet pc that costs $90. Awesome combined with WaveIO. Of course you need a router ($19) and a NAS (WDMybook$110). Dirt cheap high end transport with 1TB library. Controlled remote via iphone/pad or android. Amazing world in which we live!

Glad to hear you found the problem.

It seems that alsa always mutes WaveIO by default. It never happens with my other DAC connected. I wonder what the reason could be?
