They're the same price as a new pair of HD 800s? It's quite a deal.

Do a rainbow! Red for 16/44.1 (CD Redbook, get it?) up to white (instead of using indigo in the rainbow) for bit perfect.

Sorry :"[

 

I'm going for Red/UV.

Rainbow/Google colors would not match my set-up scheme.

I could have gotten myself the normal version and bought the muses myself and could have saved about $250
I am not going to pay a single penny for shipping, as this is Asus mistake.
I will not make  a fuss of it, but I will be cool, hoping Asus will help me as they know I am a faithful customer.....the ball is in their ground.
I feel for you bro... It's a long wait for your toy and you even go through a difficult path by asking someone to purchase on your behalf and now this has happened. Asus should compensate you for your time - not just the swapping only. I'm also a faithful with Asus.... You should see my rig, and now I'm beginning to think they are getting more complacent....

Best place for it, would be where they red mark circled it, but since you don't have it on your model, i doubt it was ever incorporated.

They don't even have a illustration to show us how it looks like, it's like a myth - either it's super top secret that it shouldn't let the public know or they don't want acknowledge that the gain jumper exist in the first place. And now they are saying it could be a batch issue? So even 6moon reviewed set was a lemoned one? Cause I never see that supposed gain jumper in there as well.

True.

 

I've read the 6moons review of the Essence One most likely around 9-10 times before making my decision on buying it.

Never did i say them have a close up or detailed description of placement and usage.

Very nice Kenion.

 

Did you photoshop that red in there for the power button?

 

Let me show you the legit one in just about an hour.

Don't forget to re-assamble your E1 before you make pictures... :p

post #1530 of 3054

Been tinkering with the E1 here, and I've run into my first issue.  For whatever reason, the FWUpdateEndUser.exe program refuses to start, and I can't update the firmware.  Killing the process in Task Manager does -nothing-, mandating a reboot to give myself another shot at things.  Following the PDF guide to install their C-Media drivers over the USB Composite device did absolutely nothing either, and compatibility mode is rubbish as well!

 

Running up-to-date W7 x64. Checking event viewer now, but any ideas in the interim?  I recall reading about a USB selector mode that tells the E1 to operate at USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 for audio, but I can't find it again for the life of me, and I'm wondering if that may help matters.

 

FWIW, I did get the MCU upgraded.  Now I just need the Firmware done.
