Tried the new firmware and the new driver. While there are some improvements in the sonics (better separation, soundstage and refinement), there's a new bug or strange behaviour. My DI-V3s is used as the primary output from my PC. When I first installed the new driver, output from Foobar ASIO works fine. However, afterusing other programs which routes through the WDM driver, the ASIO stops working. Foobar will display a message stating the virtual ASIO driver is not found. This does not happen with Wasapi output. Rebooting the PC or switching on-off the DI does not restore the ASIO functionality anymore. It's rather annoying because this didn't happen previously. And I prefer the output via ASIO because it sounds the best (to my ears). Hope this is fixed with a later update.
Fixed the problem! Rather silly mistake. I went and changed the name of the device in the sound control panel properties from Digital Interface to DI-V3. After removing all the drivers and reinstalling again, the functionality for ASIO is restored. No problems watsoever. Itchy fingers!.
