Green Is adaptive Firmware (#5 I think) Black is async (#4 as shipped), Max input on SPDIF is 96Khz on DI-V3. USB is 192Khz-384Khz.

I repeat: this thing sounds fantastic! 

I would be interested to see if you can connect using the USB with the EDO software in your SBT, I dont think I have seen anybody in the forums that has managed that yet, if there is I would love to know how you do it. As I have said previously I am using the green Firmware (#5) from the shipped pack, to run the SBT via USB can run the 192Khz files but only in adaptive mode. You wont be able to run above 96Khz using SPDIF.

And that is why I gave up on the DI-V3 and went with Plastic Fantastic (a Micromega MYDAC) - I knew it would work perfectly with EDO.  I really hope they get the EDO issues worked out because it is a good looking product...

i think i've got a problem.

i've just opened my DI v3 and there's a green firmware.

the second firmware which came with it is also green.so

so i've got two of green and none of black :((

I would, but I can't. My very few 192 kHz files are on a usb hard drive that occupies the only usb connection on the SBT. And, though I have EDO, my SBT does not play 192 on coax either. I don't mind that very much, because the Ref 7 doesn't go higher dan 24/96 anyway (it plays 192, but downsamples tot 96). With the Ref 7 / DI V3 combination I am astounded how good 16/44,1 WAV files can be, let alone 24/96 FLAC.

So do I. I have green firware by default and received green as second firmware.

Is the black asynch and green adaptative?

If some here tried both, could you please report what real differences you found about sound signature?

post #3592 of 4088

i've downloaded the firmware tool and installed the firmware #4 from it :)

don't know which firmware was on the chips i've received, but none of them matched #4 filesize

OOOppps...I put you wrong the #4 as shipped is as pictured is green or no mark in top left corner, oriented the way it faces the new VT 

 

chip, the adaptive #5 has a black dot on the solder in this same corner (note the 3 lines they face the new VT chip)

post #3594 of 4088

Whats the consensus on the additional psu? From the people who have heard it, is it worth the extra cash?? 

post #3595 of 4088

I didn't tried PSU vs no PSU on the V3, but it was a nice improvement for my V1, worth the upgrade considering the price.

post #3596 of 4088

I upgraded from V2 to V3 using the original V2 PSU. There was a bit of soldering involved to get it to play with the V3 (Kingwa sent a resistor) but I would pretty much say its essential.

post #3597 of 4088

How does the V3 run on Linux? Has anyone compared it to an XMOS based device. I don't know if I should get an Aqvox for my Hiface2 or sell the Hiface2 and get a V3+PSU confused_face_2.gif

So how is the I2S used on this, what cable is used and where does it plug into?  Is there a I2S pin out and an RJ45 jack?  I don't see where I2S is used?

post #3599 of 4088

You have to ask for it when you place the order. You'll have the I2S output at the back of the DI, which you can use to connect the DI to your I2S input at the back of a Ref7.1 or something like that.

Apparently, you can also have I2S input for the DI.

post #3600 of 4088
I think there's a header inside all the DI-V3 for I2S. You have to run it top-less though so adding the RJ45 on the back is preferred.
