Interesting. I guess I'll hold off until bugs are ironed out. BTW, have you tried playing 24/192 files via WASAPI instead of Audio-GD's kernel streaming wrapped in ASIO?

Yeah I tried all modes with same result every single time. I emailed kingwa my findings like he asked. Since its not a random error or glitch it should be easier to fix.

The main thing is that the sound is phenomenal.

The more i've listened, the more i'm under the impression it's dropped the intensity of the bass and treble back, which has brought the midrange forward more. I'll have to listen more for changes to the soundstage, personally. I'm pretty tired right now though. Everything sounds wonderful though. 

 

(I'll probably test out the Reference 10 tomorrow if I have time.)

I actually feel the bass is deeper and clearer. It really feels like an overall improvement and I don't tend to notice supposed improvements people lose their minds over around here...

I have just installed the new 2014 firmware and drivers into my Master 7 and Di-V3 and everything works flawlessly under Win8.1/foobar with Wasapi. But it is too early for any first impressions because I have been playing around with various tubes on my amp and can't tell what the sound differences are attributed to.

Are you able to play hirez files?

post #112 of 616

Yes, no problem with 24/88.2 and 24/96.

Same for me. I also can't play anything over 96, but don't have much of anything in that range. Downsampling works fine anyway.

The firmware update and the new drivers does work great, it just the asio is acting up on my,it now is no longer detected when ever I go to use it. It was working for a while before it started to stop working. Also I had issues with Kernel streaming not work as well. I starting to think my VIA and Intel usb 3.0 controllers are the cause, I don't have any USB 2.0 plugs and a NFB15.32 wont work with a usb hub of course.

 

I also having issues with playing 192khz music as well, I can't even record in 192khz. Some times I have Odd 32bit errors, but Wasapi works without a issue playing and recording 192khz as well recording 32bit.

I have been using the BNC input on my master 7 which is limited to 96k anyway so Its not like anything changes for me.  I have maybe 5 or 6 albums with sample rates above 96khz so I'm not concerned about it at the moment.  Kingwa knows its a issue and I'm sure it will be fixed before the final driver release.

I fixed my 192 kHz playback issue. First I unplugged the M7 from a USB 3.0 port that I forgot I had it plugged into and changed to a 2.0 port. Then I increased the buffer size in each of the playback modes to at least 0.30 ~ 0.50 seconds. I had my buffers set at the absolute minimum. That was it, I immediately got 192 playback.


UPDATE: The issue was not actually fixed unfortunately. J River defaulted my settings to 96khz in order to get the file to play. I didn't realize that it did this until I went back and looked at the setting again today.frown.gif

Same issue here with 192khz playback. I can play up to 176.4khz files without problem.

post #118 of 616

Up to 384K support with foobar and Jriver under Win7 64bit.

 

 

post #119 of 616

It's actually a playback problem. Win 192khz files, I got only noise, even though the system detects it up to 32/384k:

I updated my last post if anyone missed it or cares lol.

 

I'm in the same boat as aroldan.  I can play files up to 176khz but no higher.  When I try to play 192khz files I either get a error message or apparent playback begins but without sound.  

 

I'm going to try a couple of things later today.  I'll try playback in Linux on Banshee media player just to see if the issue is with the driver or the firmware.  I'll also unistall the windows driver, which was installed while my M7 was plugged into a USB3.0 port and try a install on a USB 2.0 port - I can't imagine that will make darn bit of difference though.
