What are your suggestions regarding the optimal configuration for your player in a win 7-64 machine? What makes the purest sound, for example: asio or direct sound or wasapi? Soundcard or no soundcard at all? What are your experiences?

Hello,

The best you can do is to use SSD hard disks for both OS and music, disable Virtual Memory, disable your Soundcard (if using a DAC), set Wasapi to "ON" (i know...sorry...), minimize the running processes-services and make a linear regulated Power Supply for you PC. This last thing may be a bit difficult for a Desktop PC but it is very easy for a netbook (an LM338K is usually enough).

You may also check again Wasapi after changing the sampling rate in Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Sound\Playback device\Properties\Advanced.

No success. Whatever sample rate I choose, no sound. This is kind of frustrating, but on the other hand, the sound without Wasapi is so great, Im wondering, what unknown bliss is coming if....

I can't hear the difference between Wasapi and non-Wasapi with this player.

Yes, the difference in most cases is very small.

Hi,

Yor DAC arrived and the problem you mention occured.
After installing Teralink drivers everything are just fine.

Teralink 64bit driver, http://hifimediy.com/wp-content/uplo...64Bitdrive.rar
Teralink 32bit driver, http://hifimediy.com/wp-content/uplo...a_20100401.zip

Great DAC, by the way (after a 50 hrs burn in)...actually even better after installing some caps and a linear regulated 5V psu.

ps. A new version is available with minor changes (track name display etc)
