I thought I'd resolved the problem by uninstalling & reinstalling the driver as it worked for about 5 days... but now the problem's back again. Tried un/re-installing the driver again but the problem's immediately returned. I'm guessing this is a driver problem... anyone else have this issue or know a resolution?

 

System:

FW #7

Driver v2.0

Win7 x64

In case anyone else has a similar problem, I found out that it was a conflict between the DI v3 v2.0 driver and the wa7 driver. As long as I unplug the wa7 USB from my pc, the problem doesn't occur anymore. Having read various online reviews, it seems that many USB audio drivers in the wild right now aren't quite fully baked yet.

Small update folks.

Firmware #7 and ASIO is simply awesome. The combo beats all the spdif inputs easy IMO. I believe i replaced firmware 4 and the superiority of #7 with ASIO over #4 with Kernel streaming is readily apparent. I have not tried kernel streaming on #7 yet. Well worth the small hassle of the firmware and driver upgrade.

I am using pretty much the same set-up though win7 x32, I have had a lot of problems trying to get JRiver to play in ASIO, but none of the above that you mention, most of the problems I have had are with the JRiver software, not the driver. Are you playing from memory or the HDD? Have you tried a larger buffer? I seem to have a lot of issues if I make changes to the JRiver settings then try to play I often get issues, which seem to get cured if I do a complete shutdown, the boot up again. There have also been 2 recent updates to JRiver MC18 which may coincide with your problems.

You may be right... I'm playing from memory... haven't tried adjusting the buffer size.

 

Unfortunately, the problem occurred again last night with J River so I was thinking of uninstalling the wa7 drivers altogether. I'll try Foobar first and see if the problem persists.

 

EDIT: Well, I ended up updating JRiver instead. WASAPI wouldn't work anymore but I switched to Kernel Streaming 24bit integer mode and ta da... I think all is A-OK now. So yeah, seems like JRiver is having some issues on their end. And holy moly, the DI v3 is one sweet machine, amazing clarity, definition and instrument separation... jaw dropping (and this just on a mid-fi rig).

We have bough the SBT from HongKong since 20th April but the saller still have not shipping to us.

 

Any users can update the firmware. But consider the fail risk and read the guide careful.

 

USB32 V2.0 driver
1, ASIO can select support up to 32bit (for DAC ) and up to 24bit (for DI-V3)
2, Support 32bit 384KHz (Some DA model may can't support 384K playback)
3, Firmware update (Must update the firmware for work with V2.0 driver)  for mac , Windows ,Linux (test ) (A lot users had update succeed, but few users have fail and want to buy the new Firmware , price is USD1 exclude shipping cost.)

  Download the USB32 V2.0 driver:   http://www.audio-gd.com/AudiogdUSB32v2.0forwin.rar

  Download the USB32 V2.0 driver install guide :  http://www.audio-gd.com/Driver%20install%20guide.rar

  Download the firmware update tool :  http://www.audio-gd.com/USB32firmware.rar

The Links are the same as above. I downloaded the Firmware file and it has firmware #10 in it.

Not sure if the firmware #10 is supposed to be for SBT only or for USB32 dacs too. Can you please clarify Kingwa?

Thanks

post #3882 of 4052

The FW#9 is for the USB-32 DACs.

The FW#10 is for the DI-V3.

Both support SBT, Windows and mac.

Is it recommended to update fw#7 to fw#9 for a USB DAC using only Windows (no SBT)? If so, what are the improvements? Stability, etc?
Thanks!

Edit: Just saw on Audio-gd site to stay on original firmware if not using SBT. redface.gif Thanks.

The #7 and #9 are no different except the Linux support.

We are advice if don't want support Linux and SBT don't need update for less bother on the upgrade.

Some USB DACs could be driven directly by iPad + USB connector kit, I am talking about iPad 1 or 2 here but it could be applied to latest iPad with Retina display / iPad mini. Could someone test it?

 

Details:

Does it support Linux with ARM CPU with FW#10? I am thinking to use my Raspberry Pi to drive it.
