I found two place mentioned the U2 and GR07 together:
I guess it's the pairing. UAE23 is not really natural, too smooth for some, with the laid back mid, it might be too relax (lifeless) for some, especially with bad pairings.
I don't like the UAE23 sound with Vsonic GR07 Bass Edition, too slow and too smooth, no music energy. But with JVC HA-FXD80, UAE23 sings quite well, especially for vocal and jazz, it is pretty good actually.

those two examples are going:
DAC > headphone
When they should be:
DAC > amp > headphone
Going straight from a dac to a headphone isnt ever recommended so I can't speak on that.
I'm not able to resolve the 16/24 bit issue on my Windows 7 64-bit professional anyone want to pm me some help?
Thanks a bunch,
Alright answer to my own question: !!!!
SO to any one still wondering about the driver. Just click on the little icon it installs with and put that bitrate up to 32. Awesome :)
This software may enable more android devices compatibility with this DAC (?)
Plays 32 bit just fine, in win 7 64 bit. The driver does not report the bitrates correctly to windows panel but it works with WASAPI at least. Works on foobar as well. The device won't work in 24 bit mode. You have to set your player to present data in the 32 bit package. In directsound, you are limited to 16 bit.
Well, after getting my 1st shipment ripped off in transit, Stoner sent out another without a hitch. Thank you, Stoner.
I'm really liking the DAC and think it's a great buy. I also have the Dragonfly v1.2 and HiFimeDIY non-async. All three are excellent DACs for the money and work flawlessly with Windows 7/8, all getting their drivers loaded automatically. I use JRiver MC.
I highly recommend the addition of a USB isolation board and power supply. This opens up the sound considerably and is another worthy purchase. I use these:
with the upgraded Cardas cable:
I use this combo at work with the C&C BH2 amp (another great deal). This all makes for a very nice, low-cost desktop rig. My V6-S ciem's love it. I can leave my Portaphile 627 at home with the HD600's.
And do you prefer HifimedDIY's or UD110 ? Never tested U2 (Async Hifimediy) ?
