D7 Sidewinder....Initial impressions - Page 37

post #541 of 664

Attention thread newcomers:

 

This thread is really muddied up with problems, troubleshooting, driver rewrites, etc., and that's okay. They're all real experiences. But I just want to say that mine works plug-and-play, no problems, it sounds great, runs nicely at 192/24 and makes my Westone 4Rs sound great at work. Such a great value—and that doesn't mean mediocre performance at a nice price. It means great performance at an amazing price. 

 

Just my two cents, thrown in again wink.gif

Nice to hear that it has worked well for you. Most, if not all, the problems are with Windows.

 

Did you experience the USB Warning Message on your iMac?

Agreed.. Windows 7 here and it has worked perfectly from day one.

Funny you should ask—I actually brought that up in this thread many pages back. I get the power warning when I first turn it on, but there's no performance issues whatsoever.

 

Oddly enough, I don't get the message on my MacBook Pro. No matter what I do on the iMac (hub/no hub/nothing else plugged in) the message pops up. Certainly doesn't bother me.

Peanut butter and jelly don't go well together. Do they? Lol.

I wouldn't say that it's the consensus opinion. Growing up I liked peanut butter OR jelly sandwiches. Never both. PB&J has never been my thing. redface.gif

I put my order in last week and am eagerly awaiting my D7 to arrive. I got notice from iBasso that the unit had been shipped and the EMS tracking page shows the 15th as the day they processed it .

What is the expected turnaround from Hong Kong to California? Previously when I've had shipping via EMS from Japan, it's typically only taken 2 - 3 days for a package to be delivered once EMS has begun processing.

 

UPDATE:

No sooner did I post this than it showed up - strange about the EMS page not posting any updates. Oh well - it's here now. Time to get it set up :)

I think jchandler may be referring to the most commonly served school lunch in America (when saying "popular".) Although, I guess he could mean popular, as I wouldn't be surprised if a poll taken at some point suggested that this is the case. I am sure there are plenty of kids who eat it because it's what their parents packed for them, but there are many who like it, too.

 

Fun peanut butter & jelly sandwich related factoid (credit to Wikipedia): A 2002 survey showed the average American will have eaten 1,500 of these sandwiches before graduating from high school.

 

I should remember that this forum is worldwide in audience!

 

In any event, I will correct my statement - the D7 and PK1s go together like (insert 2 favorite ingredients that you like to combine)...

Peas and Carrots! (Forrest Gump saves the day...)

 

Interesting survey -- I was never served PB&J growing up in school. I don't remember what caterer my school district used, but it wasn't one of the big ones IIRC.

Same here, I get the pop up (on a MacBook Pro though), but it functions perfectly. Doesn't really bother me at all.

Have no issues on windows . Tried on Mac, works perfectly. No pop ups. Just plug and play.

I have ordered a second one for a friend, after he listen on mine :)
