I have a couple question regarding the USB-32 setup. Thanks in advance for any answers.
I am using firmware #7,driver 2.0. Windows 7 and J river. Everything installed correctly, I am getting 44.1, 96K, etc passthrough depending on source. Adjustments made in the Envy control panel show up in DAC's windows properties.
The only thing that seems strange is the windows volume slider still can control volume/mute. Is this correct? Other ASIO DAC's I have used lock that out. So it seems this is going through the windows control panel. I thought ASIO bypassed that completely? Is everyone else having this or did I do something wrong?
I would like the volume slider to be inactive with ASIO
Also, I can set the Envy/ Audio GD control panel to 32 bit (as recommended in the manual for my unit, SA-1.32 w/DSP-1) But what should I set the sample rate? The highest file qualities I have? It seems no matter where I set that it still passes native resolution through to the DAC according to J river. Is there any advantage to setting it to 192/ 384k or ???
Thanks in advance.
BTW- the setup sounds great, I just want to make sure it's optimized and I'm getting the best out of it.
