You have to go into your sound option in controls. Select it and look at what your output sound is on. The Ele dac uses a generic driver and it will say (Speaker ,working ) instead of Ele dac.. Select it and go into select advanced and then select the 16 bit 48000Hz DVD quality. Test. If you hear some chimes when selecting test that means you are hearing the Ele dac.
Glad you got them Ghost. Much like all electronics. I would use the Ele for a while to get max sound out of the chip..Not a real necessity but I would run some music on the dac overnight maybe to burn in a headphone..It seems to help the chip come out in full.
Yeah, I was in the control panel making those changes. At one point I got the ELE to be recognized as "Speakers" and then made them my primary sound device. Worked for a bit then the next time I plugged them in it crapped out. Just plugged them in again after a clean reboot and now they are working just fine. I just got a monoprice usb cable in and am using that. Its just strange, sometimes I have to try connecting it several times til it is recognized by windows. Not a great sign, but the sound I do hear when I hear it, is great!
