Edit: Chinese forum page if anyone is interested; one dude has a link for an "always on" solution lower on the page. I downloaded it but couldn't get it to work, since it's made from drivers 2.16 files (old panel) as a solution when using drivers 2.19 (new panel) and for another XMOS based device (iFi something). Good luck figuring this Schiit out...

I looked at the code for 2.23 and it seems they have the "always on" selected by default as a registry entry that is inserted during installation. I don't see the need for any further tweeking. I will get around to installing this new version today and see if it is an improvement. It may not make any difference for those of us using Windows 7. I am currently using the 2.19 version but I am compulsive about having the latest drivers so I will upgrade today and report any difference I notice. Have to give credit for these people at Luckit they are on the ball.

The update is indeed delayed, their web designer is doing his best to get it up on their site by Monday, but it may be added sometime during this weekend.

 

I'll keep checking once in a while, if you do too, please post here when it appears, if no one else has yet, you may be the first to see it.

I've just seen that the firmware is available. It's not linked on the product page. You have to catch the link on the newsticker banner on the main page ....

Thank you very much !  I never would have found here.

I test tonight and I told you if it solves my problem of USB3.

I've installed the firmware, using my old Thinkpad from 2005 which has become my music PC since I have the Hiface 2, as the driver wouldn't work with Windows 8.1 (more info about that in this thread)

 

After the upgrade, the Hiface2 could not be detected by the driver setup (1.7) on the same laptop, although it is shown in the device manager. I will try again later.

 

But with the new firmware, I can use it for the first time on my Windows 8.1 64bit desktop PC, with the driver 1.7. No more sound stuttering and device disconnects when playing 24/96 audio.

Work perfectly ! 

No creaking noises when I plugged into a USB3 port, unlike before.

 

Thank to developers and all who participated in this topic :) 
Thank Claude for having show me the link, I'd never find on this page.

 

( I plugged into a USB3 port on a Alienware M14X R2 on Windows 7, I use the 1.7.0 driver of HiFace 2)

So, they finally released the firmware on their website huh?

 

I'm kind of curious now, did anyone hear an immediate difference in sound quality like I did?

 

At any rate, new firmware and drivers are not only working great for me, but also sound so much better than before it's almost hard to believe...
