Hi I asked him some of the above questions.

For over 192Khz for now use kernel streaming, wait for ASIO to come, hopefully soon, they are working on it. WASAPI in J.River will only do 192Khz.

I added myself to the spreadsheet for one board.

Thanks, Amanero.

I also tried and failed to get bit-perfect operation under WASAPI and Win 7 the other day. Using the Audio Precision Bittest, direct I2S out to the AP, and connected to a Windows 7 PC using J River there doesn't seem to be any way to get bit-perfect reproduction.

Every other USB card I have tried with ASIO drivers (Musiland, XMOS, exaU2I) worked perfectly in this setup with an error rate of 0 even after several hours of running.

I'm starting to think most of the issues I'm seeing are related to the WASAPI implementation and not the Amanero card itself, which means I'm really crossing my fingers for good ASIO support under Windows 7. This WASAPI thing seems like a bit of a crock to me.

Cheers,
Owen

Tried the board with my test setup.

Correct me if I'm wrong but this board does not have an ASIO driver.
Or does it?

Owen, Do you have a Linux(and/or Mac) setup you could test it with? I could provide the hardware if you are interested..

Can someone present a fairly simple explanation of how Linux and OSX avoid these difficulties? That's my understanding and please correct me if I'm not getting that correct.

Linux and OSX have USB 2.0 audio drivers built into the base OS(as long as the DAC or Transport manufacturer(Amanero in this case) adhere's to the driver standard).. No "special Sauce" needed. There are other tweaks (pulse audio vs ALSA, kernel tweaks(even Real Time Kernel replacements, which some people swear by) that "can" improve (according to some) the SQ even more, but it basically works out of the box.
