Audio-gd Digital Interface - Page 220

post #3286 of 4090

Having an odd problem (?) with the blue light on my DI-DSP. The light is going off for a few seconds then back on. Sometimes it blinks off/on/off/on. All the while the signal is never interrupted, music still sound good.

 

The Di-DSP is powered by Audio g-d's external power supply. The blue light on the P/S is working properly BTW

 

Anyone else has or had this 'problem' ?

I experienced that exact problem a few times. As long as the unit is fully functional, I'm not bothered about it.

Did you guys fixed your issues with the drivers or is there no news and hope about BSODs and other glitches?

post #3289 of 4090

Nope and no news - Kingwa?

I changed from Mac and have been using with PC on a fresh Win 7 ultimate with all the windows updates available, so far it has been stable on ASIO.. I am using JRiver as the player.. Tried WASAPI Event once and it crashed, nothing on WASAPI.. So I'm just gonna stick to ASIO.. oh, and the driver is the latest from Kingwa..

It appears Audio g-d & Kingwa are distancing themselves from the TE8802 chip. They are moving to the USB-32 chip in newer version DACs

 

I guess we who purchased the latest & greatest at the time TE8802 are stuck. Oh well...

post #3292 of 4090

it would be nice if Kingwa would offer a USB-32 upgrade for the latest DI-DSP to those who have purchased it!

Burson audio is including a Tenor TE78802 usb audio in their coming new DAC "Conductor" so maybe new drivers are coming

Interesting... They have drivers for download on their site

 

Probably the same as Kingwa version 2 drivers but not sure

I asked- the issue is power requirements, it needs more than what USB power can supply. He is considering it. I say offer a wall wart power supply with the upgrade kit with the understanding that the DI will not work unless it is used.

Don't get your hopes up. Kingwa told me a while ago to return mine for refund because the drivers would not be fixed.

TE8802 is far from the 'latest & greatest'; It is a budget solution. Even with the TCXO upgrade it is a jitter fest because of the way the chip tries to synthesize 44.1kHz and 48kHz clock multiples from a 12.000MHz crystal. Anything based on XMOS will destroy the DI-V2 in performance due to technical superiority -- largely because it uses discrete clocks for 44.1 and 48kHz multiples (22.050 and 24.576 MHz, respectively iirc) resulting in far less jitter.

 

Kingwa should skip the TE8802 and the USB-32 chip altogether and adopt XMOS for his higher end gear and the DI. One major bonus of using XMOS: the drivers have been updated over 50 times in 3 years with no end in sight (I just updated again a week ago).

They are. Based on the file timestamps the Audio-gd "v2" drivers were packed on August 8 while the Burson ones were done on June 7 and the contents of the .exe's are the same except the Audio-gd has larger icons by about 100KB.

Here is a cheap option with discrete clocks  http://www.ebay.com/itm/130761977032?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

I should have said so called 'latest & greatest' for that is what Kingwa pushed it as... But I'm ultimately responsible

Do you know if the DI-PSU would suffice?

Well, when Kingwa debuted his TE8802 stuff, he claimed he compared a few USB receiver chips and found TE8802 is superior to XMOS.
