Got it to work! Had to use WASAPI instead of ASIO, don't know why but now it works!
Any tried to use Jriver MC19 to upsample PCM to DSD with the x-sabre? I made it work x64, but with x128 I only get distortion. Anyone know anything about this?
Anyone have tried the Schiit Wyrd with the X-sabre? Anyone think it will make a difference?
I never said it was a bad thing, if you read the other parts you would have seen that :)
Last update on my issues with the Questyle:   I've narrowed the problem it down through testing and pure stubbornness. One side of my apartment does have some sorts of power problem that affects the laptop and it in turn affects the USB out.   After I tried another room and loaned a external USB with dedicated power from a friend I suddenly have no issues at all. In fact now the amp sounds better then it ever did and I am enjoying the sound immensely. This is the best...
Btw, I appreciate you guys trying to help me! Thank you!  
It is an older model, but some pirates debunked the myth that some older are brighter, also this is the first time with HD800 that I feel it is too bright. I'll keep it one more week to see if it's only mental burn in needed or something.
Update: I have tested with every equipment I own, and sometimes the Questyle sounds good again (like the first day).   What I did:   -Switched to different USB outputs -Tested two DAC -Swapped out some cables (I am a non believer, but I have gotten som nice in trades etc.) -Switch power outakes   What had most effect: -Power outtake. Where I live there is a 220v while the questyle is 230v, I don't think this should matter, but perhaps is does. -Switched USB...
Hehe yeah I do it regulary :) I wonder if it can be something to do with me being in europe, regarding power issues. I really don't know, I guess I am grasping for straws here. I hope it will work out somehow, because I really wanted this amp to be good and would be the last purchase in a while.. Edit: I'll try to burn it in some more. I don't think that should have any impact on the sound, but it doesn't hurt to try some more hours on it.
I use RCA connections. For the "getting a new DAC", John did test it with the X-sabre and said is was a great combo with no harshness, not what I am experiencing right now.   It also feels like it's getting worse, like the treble getting louder and bass disappearing for each day. It makes the HD800 very harsh to listen to. I have contacted my seller about this, is it possible that I have a faulty unit?   I will try switch some gear around for more testing.
