Looking at the Audio GD site - main page - it looks like nothing yet has changed. I still see the same verbage about 2014 firmware as was there last week. I would think Kingwa would include an explanation of what changes, etc.
Kingwa is probably testing very carefully before releasing. It is a major headache to recall something broken. Besides the Master 7 he needs to check the firmware in all USB32 supported products and go through all the SW/ firmware features whether we use them or not. Takes time but is probably highest priority as his Email inbox is mostly likely full with complaints.

Bah 24/96 is good enough anyways. I like how the M7 sounds without any software upsampling, and the best hires I've got is 24/92.
But anyways. This is interesting. I would like to check this firmware upgrade out soon.post #1204 of 34921/22/14 at 5:44pmpost #1205 of 34921/22/14 at 8:17pm
Kingwa notified me that V2 of the firmware upgrade is available soon. Check the Audio GD web site.
And speaking of 192kHz I think V2 may sound different than V1 in the M7. Tonight I'm not getting the same vibe with 96k and below sampling rates. So I will have to listen more to V2 and at some point switch back to V1 to compare. Very well could be something else like myself. Be interesting what others M7 owners have to think after some listening.post #1206 of 34921/23/14 at 1:28am
Thank you guys for your comments. Actually I think also that way, I DO can live without 24/192 but it should be a decision of mine!...not because of some "problem" (whatever the f*** it is!!!!). I am waiting for a vovox aes/ebu to make a last test before last decision....post #1207 of 34921/23/14 at 3:50am
It is clearly stated that the new driver and firmware are for testing. So what’s the problem? If the new version is not to your liking you can always go back to the older version, it’s up to you.
The V2 of 2014 is btw now on the AGD web cite.post #1208 of 34921/23/14 at 5:36pm
I don't notice any difference SQ-wise between the newest 2014 firmware and the first 2014 firmware. Other than that I can now play 192khz. Nice work Kingwa. I was afraid that some of the sound quality gains on the first 2014 firmware would be lost when it was reconfigured to play 192khz files but everything still sounds great and miles better than the last firmware.post #1209 of 34921/23/14 at 5:51pmpost #1210 of 34921/23/14 at 5:51pmpost #1211 of 34921/23/14 at 10:50pm
Yoiu have 3 doc(s) in the rar archive. You should read them in the specified order ( they are named 1_Read me at first.doc, 2_Firmware update guide.doc. 3_Driver2014 install guide.doc ). If you want to update the FW, 2_Firmware update guide.doc explains how to do it.post #1212 of 34921/24/14 at 1:16amI did pence with a my Dev - 3. From him. I cooked the chip on the USB board when I was flashing it. I ordered a few and have them. The program locked up during the firmware write. But I did do correct after.
Alpost #1213 of 34921/24/14 at 4:29ampost #1214 of 34921/24/14 at 4:34amI seen that too. I know a few weeks back kingwa stated under 100 pcs in stock.
So maybe he is testing the waters to see how many people still want it
The pcm1704 is made by texts insrtumints
And they still make them. I do not know what the cost is.
There are other dacs that still use that chip.
And one of them is 60k.
The trinity DAC.
