It's subtle but it does change the sound some, whether it's an improvement is up to the user- it tends to make the vocals sound closer to you and instruments seem more distinctly placed in your head. I could hear this even with my DSP-1 in my dac.

It does not lower DPC latency.

Still, I am not sure how significant the 24.576mhz TCXO clock is since the upsampling is a rather subjective matter too..

 

Thanks for any advices, really appreciate! :)
 

It depends on how revealing your system is and how "picky" you are. I noticed a distinct improvement with the 12mhz upgrade, but I listen to some brutally revealing speakers in a very purist system. Regards

these 2 observations with both the clocks upgraded?

Can any one help to test if the TE8802 can playback the DSD files?

A Hongkong customer send me the DSD plug, one DSD track asked I test .

When I told him there is no problems of the playback he appear beyond belief .

Thanks.

i thought that SPDIF in DI can transmit only PCM stream?

 

DSD is totally different.

yes, you may convert DSD to PCM, but it will ruin the whole idea of DSD.

I think you are right, I've heard of DSD over USB but never DSD over SPDIF/coaxial connection.

 

Most audio players convert the DSD to PCM so it will work, but it wont be natively supporting DSD ie streaming PWM to the DAC chip.

I use the DI between a TASCAM cd200 and an Anedio D2.  I have upgraded both clocks both have never used the upsampling. I told you I was a puriist! Regards

Got the call from Tenor this morning.

They change the words , they said they are working hard and will release the full new driver at next week , except at 14 th but they said maybe tell customers at 16th.

They said this driver is their best driver up to now.

So they won't send the old version to me and customers.

Sorry for the delay repeatedly.

Wish they can release the driver in time.

wow. cool.

is that possible that the new driver will sound even nicer?

Hi ^^ well i don't know if it's ok but => with Foobar 2K player , with http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_input_dsdiff (DSD decoder) , on NFB-17.2 straight with USB it's working , i don't know if there is a DSD to PCM conversion done by foobar with the plugin , but at least there is sound .

 

http://www.2l.no/hires/index.html   (sample music from here) peraphs something is wrong there too . But a least i tryed tongue.gif

I worked out what the problem was with Kingwa via email. His customer had send him a DSD file that had been down-sampled to 88.2k.

I think it is possible though probably unlikely to be significant. I remember when Windows 7 SP1 came out it had a new USB audio driver that made a slight improvement with the old DI's sound quality.

post #3210 of 4069

Wow. I just switched the power supply of the DI-DSP from USB to an external Li-Ion battery and what a difference it made. The sound became more focused - better defined highs and better transparency to the music. Definitely an improvement in clarity, like a veil had been lifted. Cymbals sound more realistic with a bite to them and vocals are more upfront and natural. I highly recommend using an external power supply for the DI-DSP. The difference is not subtile and you will notice it right away.
