Yep, has been done.

A really noticeable and obvious jump in SQ.
I did read that it was not going to be possible to use such devices but mine is really singing with it.
May work for others also
The Amanero works well and sounds good in my Atom based W7 foobar/Jriver Jplay or Slacko puppy set up with no issues or drop outs whatsoever.
Good work Alex
Thanks firstly to Korben69 for getting us organised for the GB
And a big thanks to Domenico for making this board available at such a good price

but there is no need for something like that, just supply it with 5v at C27 and cut the 5v wire on the USB....

It's easier for me that I cannot fit a pus inside the DAC where the usb interface resides.

Or take out the 3V3 reg and feed the board Directly via the 3.3v and 0v terminals as I have now done.

mY USB board is in a separate case and connected to Teleporters/BIII so I do have a little extra space to play with.
As Telstar mentions
Some may not have the space for more PSU’S and transformers. In which case the USB power Injector IMHO is an ideal way to try.

Default Power Supply

I'm tweaking a power supply to give the 3.3V needed. Could someone tell me what the current draw would be at 16/44.1? Thanks.

First, thanks for replying to my need for help :-)

I did exactly as described in the update "how to" and first off windows detected that this was an unknown device and that drivers was needed (or a wording with this meaning). However, windows didn't do anything & the config tool kept writing "please erase the device ..."

Also, when I plugged-in the board the computer gave a "do-do" sound as if it had registered the device.

Anyway, I went into control panel - hardware manager - devices - and at some point I was able to ask windows to search for a driver. I chose the folder with the update tools and windows apparently installed the driver software.

After this I was able to download the new firmware and it apparently installed what should be installed (?). Now it appears as a device in "devices" in the control panel.

So, I hope it works, and that the next step is to make the DAC so that I can listen ;-)


Make sure the tools files are in the same folder as the drivers files. The ATM config file is in tools folder, but the ATM drivers are in the drivers folder. That's why it won't load the usbser driver you need to load the firmware.
