Just bought the UD-H01 recently . Too bad I didn't read the review in thread before I bought this DAC , otherwise I should know that the driver issue for 64 bit system earlier .
Personally , I like the sound from this DAC more than my previous DAC , which is Fiio E10 . However , the driver issue make the DAC is not stable enough to use . It will generate loud noise , and cracks , at unpredictable frequency . Sometimes the DAC just generate noise after 15 minutes of operate , and sometimes it runs for hours without problem .
So , there will be two option for me at this moment :
1) Endure the USB problem and wait for the next update from TEAC
2) Buy an additional USB-Digital interface to connect the DAC via Digital Coaxial or Optical
For option 2 , I'm now considering either SMSL SD-022+ , or Musiland Monitor 01 USD (version 2012) . Please , advice me which one I should buy for a better audio experience ? Personally I prefer Musiland Monitor 01 more because once TEAC's driver is stable enough , the Monitor 01 can be withdraw from the system and can use as a standalone sound card .
BTW , is there a practical workaround solution for Windows 7 64 bit user to operate this DAC stably ?
Thanks very much !
