post #4141 of 4149

Hi All.

I am new to Audio GD DI and looking to buy a  DI-2014 so i have some questions :

 

- From my computer to my DAC is 5M long, so what will be best in my case : using a 5M USB line from computer to DI-2014 then 0.5M hdmi cable from DI-2014 to  my DAC i2s hdmi port , or using 0.5M usb cable to DI-2014 then 5M hdmi from DI-2014 to my DAC ? 

- My DAC using Amanero USB board with 2 clock chip to Crystek upgraded and it also have dedicated ultra-low noise power supply Linear for Amanero USB boad instead of using 5v from usb computer. In this case are there any sound improve if i use a DI-2014 as usb converter and connect it to my DAC i2s hdmi port ?

 

Thank you !

Yea pretty disappointing. The later DI versions really didn't pick up steam like the first version. But then again, the price almost doubled. At it's current price point, I don't see a reason to just buy a whole new DAC with a better USB implementation.

If it could use the Anamero, then perhaps but as it is, there is though and cheaper competition [Gustard, Melodious, etc.].

I hate the VIA drivers so when I buy my next product of theirs, it will definitely have the Anamero board.

That and I might have to send it in for repair as the USB I can't get to work for quite some time. Optical and Coax is fine.

Shame though as it is a really good product. The PSU section especially is formidably beefy, considering the size!

I don't know if I ever posted here, but I had a Gustard U12 that I was running to my Reference 1. I thought it was great. Threw on my test tracks and was really digging it. 0 problems with dropout.

 

After 2 weeks of use I warmed up my old Reference 3 (the predecessor to the DI-V1, with a beefy power supply). WOW! The audio-gd reference 3 made the gustard sound grainy, unrefined and closed it. The only super noticeable thing was how much grainier the gustard sounded. Sold that U12 the next day.

I guess. I am still happy with the U12. Super smooth sound. Though I will probably get something else eventually, like the Melodious or something smily_headphones1.gif

Reviving an old thread. I'm interested in the sonore microrendu and was wondering if the original audio-gd digital interface external power supply is compatible. Here are the specs I found on the Audio-gd DI power supply:

 

3, Upgrade the power supply :
      The DI-PSU built in 7.5V / 600MA class A PSU, cooperate with the DI can become double stages class A PSU , offer clear power supply for the circuits. DI-PSU price USD75 without shipping cost , include 1 unit PSU, 2 units DC wires, 1 unit power cable . (The DC plug outside dia. is 5.5MM, inside hole dia. is 2.5MM)

 

And here is the spec on the microrendu:

 

SPECIFICATIONS
Power input: 6-9 VDC at 1 Amp min.
Power connector: 2.1mm x 5.5mm (center +)

 

It looks like the power connector is same size. I don't want to risk damaging the microrendu in case it is not compatible.

Looks like the 600mA won't be enough current for thee microrendu, and the connector inside hole looks a little off.

Thank you for the response. I wonder if the di psu can be modded to have enough current. I have a couple of them laying around and would love to repurpose them.

Anyone with DI-V3 running on windows 10?
It work flawlessly with windows 7, but now I can't manage to install the driver on windows 10, (instal driver fail, error code: 0x0, 0x0).
