somestranger26, did you try with windows 8 rtm
post #3272 of 4069

No, I'm staying on Windows 7 until they let you disable Metro completely.

To the people having issues on PC's... have you built that PC or is it a pre-made from a manufacturer?

 

Because of the issues I've tried it on 3 of my PC's and my MBP and all work fine .. this is with original driver... all 3 PC's use Win7 x64 and all are patched with the latest windows updates, latest drivers for chipset (very important!), BIOS, and everything else (though I don't think other things make a difference)

 

The systems tested

 

Asus p67 motherboard

i7 2600k o/c to 4.7ghz

 

MSI AMD 870

AMD B55 (dual core unlocked to quad core and O/C to 3.2ghz)

 

MSI P45

E5300 OC to 3.4ghz

But other chips can run without drivers at all eg the old Tenor 7022 or whatever, or if they have drivers do not have compatibility issues because they are designed properly eg Thescyon XMOS drivers.  

 

I feel bad for Kingwa putting so much work into the DI v2 and being let down by Tenor on the drivers...

I have a Reference 10.2 with the Tenor TE8802 chip and having BSOD crashes regularly and randomly. Its directly plugged into the PC via USB cable and Im using driver version 1.1.27.2a . PC is:

Does anybody know if using a USB interface such as a Audiophilleo1/2 would help ??
post #3276 of 4069

 guys!

 

those of you who have troubles with BSODs and stuff - please - try to set latency and buffer everywhere in your software player to any possible maximum.

 

i'm sure that it will help at least some of you!

It is easy to forget that Kingwa & Company are not the software/driver programers

post #3278 of 4069

Yes we'll just blame the programmers, not the person selling the item without thoroughly checking for problems first. Makes sense to me.

post #3279 of 4069

@ Baird GoW

 

There is enough 'blame' to spread it around...

 

Personally I've worked-out the problems I had with my SBT & Eee Pc thanks to research & the help from others

Yes. I just got a V-Link 192 (only $250 from ebay france) which is based on the XMOS chipset and it completely eliminated the issues I was experiencing, and it sounds better than DI w/ battery to me without any burn-in.

post #3281 of 4069

Does anyone know what chip is that?

NO Idea - here is the NFB-11 though - I can't make anything out:

It could be a chip manufactured by VIA, since all the files in the drivers are like "viausb.dll". Definitely not Tenor / TE8802, so it shouldn't have problems. 

 

edit: I tried finding vendor with the "VID" or vendor ID inside ViaUsbAudio.inf, but it brought up nothing. So, just based on the filenames I think it must be a via chip although I had no idea they were in this market.

I think you are right it is probably the Via VT1731 - it looks like it does SPDIF input as well.  NFB-11 looks like a pretty neat little sabre DAC.
