does this mean you rate it behind the hiface2?

just curious

Nope, just selling . . . like everything, hurry up it won't last. :D

On a serious note, iLink is better, much better, I sold my HiFace2 right after I got iLink.

i have considered the ifi gear, but have decided to go for one of these

this will hopefully delay my urge to buy a new dac.
i fancy the yulong da8 but am trying to resist until after xmas.

Just received the Hiface Two so now I must compare it to the Audiophilleo 1 :) Will be back with findings.

Hi,

 

I've installed the 1.7 drivers last week-end!

Now, I have to disconnect/reconnect the hiface almost every day if I want i to be seen in device manager after reboot/sleep.

With old luckit driver, it was better (around one unplug/plug each 14 days)
Never had these issues with Hiface1, and even if I'm very pleased with audio performance, it's quite a mess to move my big audio/video furniture every night to unplug it!

Mayeb switch back to v1 :(

Unfortunately this is a common problem with the Hiface 2. I just live with the problem cause it sounds so good for the price.

i used to get this problem all the time.

i recently bought a new monitor with built in usb hub.

since i have been using this hub, i have had no problems at all.

Actually, I also have mine on a powered usb hub and it still has the problem. Consider yourself lucky if you found a solution. Still, it's a small problem. I usually unplug the Hiface 2 when I'm not using it and plug it into the hub when I want to use it which avoids the problem.

I had the same problem with iFi iLink, so I guess it's XMOS receiver in general. Funny that this never happened on my docked office Lenovo laptop. So I guess it just happens on some hardware, not a biggie, just replug and go.

Hasn't happened to me yet.

Has to do with the bios code of your device. Each pc has a unique bios provided by the manufacturer. Within that code are a series of recognition codes. I guess my motherboard manufacturer forgot that one. So, it's the luck of the draw if your motherboard sees the Xmos device on boot. Not really the fault of the Xmos provider.

You might be right as this happens on hard reboots only.

Are you using AMD or Intel motherboards?

Personnaly it's a gigbyte for AMD APU.

Could you please test if unpowered/powered the usb hub makes the hiface work again?
thanks

Anything that causes the device to be disconnected and reconnect while in Windows gets it working immediately. The problem was there before I even used a powered hub. I would be hard pressed to say the powered hub made any sonic difference. I used the hub to get the strain off the usb port and put the Hiface 2 where I can easily reach it to reset. I took my own advice and updated my bios yesterday and I haven't yet had any boot problems with the Hiface. Maybe that got it. I will report back after several days of use.
