Using MediaMonkey with the Wyred 4 Sound DAC-2
The Wyred 4 Sound Owner's manual provides general instructions for USB configuration. To support the USB connection, your media player must be configured for kernel or WASAPI support. Audio will not playback properly, that is no sound will be produced the via USB connection, when using MediaMonkey without WASAPI support. This mini guide provides additional instructions for configuring MediaMonkey for WASAPI support.
Note: For additional background on Windows 7 audio refer to this article. Although the article was written for configuring the J River Media Center product, the Windows 7 audio background information still applies.
MediaMonkey WASAPI Support
MediaMonkey v3.n, and older, does not include WASAPI support required for USB connections. This limitation can be avoided by installing the latest v4 "alpha" build which includes native WASAPI support. See the MediaMonkey Test Build Page for a link to the latest alpha build. Download and install the latest v4 build.
MediaMonkey Configurations Settings
After the v4 build has been installed, configure the WASAPI settings in MediaMonkey. The following screen shots and configuration settings are for alpha build v18.104.22.1689. In MediaMonkey, select Tools, Options, Player Output Plug-Ins, then click the MediaMonkey WASAPI output radio button. Next, click the Configure button.
The MediaMonkey WASAPI Output plug-in window will appear. Three typical base settings are Default device, Exclusive mode, and Automatic choice of format (per track). Values for other settings are based on personnel preferences. Click OK to exit the dialog.
Remember this is an "alpha" release, so some inconveniences may be encountered. But having said that, once these settings have been configured, you should be good to go for audio playback via USB at various rates up to 24bit/192kHz.
