I saw that the windows driver is now version 1.056, so does that mean that the revised firmware is included in with the driver? I have not yet installed the driver.

I guess the revised firmware need only be installed separately if one has already installed the driver? As per the link in earlier post - which does not appear on the website page.

Thanks

Not looking for all the intricacies of hook-up, just a little clearer picture of the options. I'm on the list to receive JP's/Subbu DAC when it becomes available but am also interested in investigating other paths.

I honestly don't think I'm the only forum member who could find a summation of such information helpful - in one place or one post.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: It may be asking too much, but an approach similar to this could prove to clear things up. I am more than willing to help collect and organize something similar for this module.

The point that qusp is making, is that there is more than one provider of DAC kits and you can take your time to research them. TPA are very popular on here, that doesn't mean they're the only one out there. Selecting a DAC kit is also more a whole of system choice not simply a matter of compatibility. In general, I'd start with a DAC and output stage that you want, then select input components that are complementary to its features.

Some of the questions that would come up are: What are your performance targets? Do you want to use an external IV or a chip with voltage output? Do you want digital volume? Do you want valves? NOS? sigma-delta? Depending on your answers to those questions you end up with a very different system and indeed depending on those I might even end up suggesting not TPA product (which I probably would anyway even if you do want a ES9012/8 DAC).

Any list of DIY kits would be contentious since the guys that sponsor and make these forums possible would feel hardly done by since the other non-sponsor providers may be seen to be getting free advertising.

See how far off topic you have to go to answer your question?

well I mentioned the dac IM using it with more than once, which is a sabre dac that isnt a TP product, weve mentioned the kits before in the other thread but in another price range... hint hint...

I just found 3 with google searching 'DIY es9018 dac', on the DIYA link click 'more results from DIYA' you'll get a few and depending on your pricerange I might suggest one that nobody would think. that took me less than 30seconds. make sure to go past the first page or 2, the most popular isnt always the best

OK, OK, I get the message. It sounds a lot like what my old girlfriend used to say, "Don't go away mad, just......"

Be in tough.

Thanks Dave, it's working perfect with Jriver instead.

Not sure where ASIO4ALL gets supported sample rate information, but it looks like from windows and not from amanero driver as WASAPI works fine at those pcm sample rates.

I can use combo384 for DSD128 on mac with audirvana so I know the card works, however using foobar with sacd input plugin and proxy with ASIO4ALL I can't use higher sample rates during my tests in last few days with current driver and firmware.

Hi,
Amanero board arrived yesterday. My plan is to feed Buffalo III DAC with Legato 3.1.

Yesterday I had no issues playing DSD in Foobar2000 in my Dell Lattitude x64bit with Windows 7. I just installed the Windows driver from the Amanero website and the foobar components KS and SACD . KS worked very well as far as I could test (with no DAC connected).

Seems kind of hard to find information about how to hook Amanero with Buffalo III to support PCM and DSD seamlessly. I've found information about it in a few places. But all the useful information is here:
DIY HiFi H i F i D U I N O
I will try this this afternoon, please let me know your thoughts.

Another interesting thing is that nobody really made an statement about Sound Quality. Everybody seems to busy doing DIY and having lots of fun. I am expecting to have better SQ switching from Toslink to thes Amanero I2C module. At least if the people couldn't tell if SQ was improved, people should state that and not being concern about that.

Well, I will let you know how it goes, probably tomorow.

Cheers

speaking of sound quality in different rooms with different systems with different ears connected to a different brain listening to different music.... its pretty meaningless IMO. maybe one reason you dont see much of it.
