I can confirm a 192kHz signal on two of my DACs.

Thanks for he information. I will try later with a native 192khz file.

Please note I get this info on my DACs even if I don't play any music.
As soon as I connect the hiface to my DACs I get confirmation that the input is 192kHz even though there is no music playing.

It's not a HiFace. It's a different design. We'll work it out.

Any plans on making a "light mod" of the hiface? I am pretty sure your next pace car will probably be one the best sources in existence today (be it CD transports or usb to spdif converters) but it will be probably a little bit on the expensive side (at $1000+) and maybe even overkill for many people with mid-level dacs. A hiface with a good power supply and usb galvanic isolation could be an intermediary solution between the stock version and your future pace car. Well this is just a thought ...
I will be designing a new USB module to replace the current one in used the Off-Ramp and the Overdrive DAC later this summer. The new Off-Ramp will be less expensive than the Pace-Car USB, and it will provide all of the things you are after. It will come in well under $1K, just like the current Off-Ramp 3.

Just getting an indication does not mean that the data will be correct. Are you successfully playing 192 native files?

I'll check it out Steve and let you know.

I'm playing native 24/192 files on my M2Tech-Buffalo32S setup (via KS).
No issues.

I do, actually, run it at 176.4/24 (4x) foobar2000 SoX upsampling all the time with Chord64, had some occasional crackling under intense internet browsing on Vista and all that seems gone when moved to Windows 7, both OS are 64-bit, same laptop.
Works with 192 files too, just tried that with some free samples from http://www.2l.no/hires/index.html.

Confirm I can play a 24bit/176.4kHz file with iTunes via hiface.

Figured it out. I was my XP laptop. The latency was evidently so large that it could not keep up with 192kHz. It's an older laptop with a fast CPU but not a large memory.

I have Snow Leopard on my Mac Mini with 4GByte memory and its working fine.

Pleased you sorted it out Steve, on Mac the driver is 32bit/192kHz.
Can you verify that?
