For Windows 8.1:

did you try to reinstall the drivers in windows 7 compatibility mode?

post #3978 of 3990

Try this link: http://audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/USB32/USB32EN_2.htm

 

The firmware v11 also contains older firmwares http://www.audio-gd.com/USB32firmware.rar

 

It should have all the files inside.

Hi,

I know that 2014 drivers aren't for DI-V3, but did someone try them on it?

Thanks
post #3982 of 3990

Yes, I installed the 2014V1 and 2014V2 version to my DI-V3 and both OK :)

And sounds better now? ;-)

I listen the DI-V3 at occasional times but the Master 7 with the new firmware sounds good. I can't provide a detailed comparison because I have also exchanged tubes in my headphone amp. The new firmware 2014V2 and drivers work flawlessly in my DI-V3 (WIN 8.1). Try it...

post #3985 of 3990
Ok, thanks for your feedback... ;-)
post #3986 of 3990

Kingwa told me that DI-V3 will also have a v2014 firmware very soon...

post #3987 of 3990
So the one we used although it works is not the preeminent one

For those curious about installing the new 2014 firmware and driver on the DI-V3, I have installed them on the DI-V3. It works although playback is only available via WASAPI and not through ASIO for now. Kingwa mentioned in an email that the ASIO only works in 32bit output so not applicable to the DI-V3 which can only output 24bit for SPDIF.

 

The sound is definitely an improvement over earlier firmwares and drivers with better separations, soundstage depth and a balanced improvement at both ends of the extensions. It's a really nice sonic improvement. 

 

I did try using the earlier USB32 v2 driver which allowed me to use ASIO in 24bit mode. Although there is a slight improvement in the trebles, the bass seems to sound dry and lacking. Can't compare with the sonics with the actual 2014 drivers. 

 

Would be really worthwhile to wait for the new firmware and drivers for the DI-V3. 

post #3989 of 3990

I use Wasapi and Kernel Streaming (WIN 8.1+foobar) with the 2014V2 firmware. Both OK.

post #3990 of 3990

I'm interested in having the 2014 version for the DI V3 as I'm not using foobar and don't find a good wasapi plugin for my player.

 

I hope they are going to release their new driver "special DI V3" soon!
