Sound randomly cuts off for short to long periods of time, freezing up any other tasks until after it's been restored. Static noises happen randomly no matter what my latency is set to, be it opening an image file or closing a browser, it'll crackle and pop from time to time.

 

Any chance of a new driver coming out =/?

Have you contacted CEntrance directly about a new driver for Windows 10? Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the existing CEntrance Universal Driver? (I'm planning to install Windows 10 on one of my PCs, and want to know beforehand if it will be a problem for the DACmini.)

I'm afraid to do so, due to any driver related inquiries I've made in the past years to different vendors ending up with a (It's probably your computer) excuse.

 

That aside, the crackles aren't really killing me at the moment (Very brief and infrequent), and the sound cutting off has only happened once in the last 2 weeks.

It doesn't hurt to ask at least.

 

Unfortunately, random usb quibbles are par for the course when it comes to computer audio. On my laptop I had all sorts of weird glitches when I was running Vista, then when I upgraded to Win7 everything worked beautifully. I'm hesitant to try 10, so I'm waiting to see how that pans out in the next couple months.

 

Some other things to try:

- uninstall the reinstall the current driver (instead of just reinstalling on top)

- uninstall drivers from other audio devices you don't use anymore (I don't know why, but this has cleared up other issues for me before)

- check the power settings of the usb ports in device manager, give it priority and turn off power saving

I just realised how much better the dacport lx is than any other portable dacs I've owned when I just sold off my ipod and 1st gen solo (used with my jds labs c5. I could never really hear much improvement from listening straight out of my lg g3 except a tad more bass and power due to the increase in out put voltage. 

By swapped out with the dac lx, the increase in sound stage, resolution and bass is much more noticeable.
