My bad rubenpp.  I apologize for my comment.  I incorrectly thought you were a prospective owner who had come to the conclusion that because of one person’s experiences, the  DA8 had a universal DSD playback issue.  Had I paid more attention I would have realised that you are the person who is having problems with the DA8 and DSD. 

 

For the record, I am using JRiver 18, Windows 7.  As cwtim01 mentioned he is using a linux rrig.

 

What player/OS are you using?  Perhaps the DA8 does not play well with a certain hardware/software combo?  Have you tried reinstalling the Yulong driver?  Double checked all settings?

 

^This. We probably shouldn't rule out that its a software or computer issue. Try what mrcasey recommended and also try connecting the DA8 to a different computer. If the issue is gone you'll know its something to do with the computer, the drivers, or your media player.

Probably a silly question, but does anyone know if the DA8 is compatibler with A+ integer mode?

For me very important for the choice.

 

Thanks

The DAC doesn't need driver for Mac. It's "integer" with A+

It uses the Italian Amanero : http://amanero.com

No problem mrcasey :-) 

 

I also sent GrantFidelity an email regarding my DSD concern.and they replied to me with Yulong's recommendations (similar to yours ) but still no luck...my only recourse is to send it back to China at my expense and if they find a problem -- then they will replace it.

Have tried at least 6 different computers ( 2 PCs, 2 mac minis early 2010 , late 2011.. latest Thinkpads T430 & X1 Carbon)  with the ff OSes

 

Windows 7&8, Osx 10.6.8,10.8.3  ..with Jriver MC18 , Foobar and  A+1.5 .

 

I have done this in 3 different locations - apt, friend's home and the office.

 

Same results.

Also try a variety of USB ports.  I had a DAC that didn‘t like being connected through a USB 3.0 port even though USB 3.0 is supposed to be backwards compatible. 

You could very well have a defective unit but considering your next option is to send the DA8 back for replacement, it might be worth trying everything you can (although it sounds like you already have).

No no... Demand a replacement. You received a defective unit. How can they make you pay for shipping to China. There is a purchase time window right? You should have up to a month  or if its defective they should swap it out. Its not your fault its messed up.

For those looking to acquire some DSD files:

 

dsdfile.com, http://shop.dsdfile.com/ has just released 2 more albums in DSD 64 and DSD 128. (currently downloading)

 

Although I am very pleased with the DSD content I have downloaded from other distributors, dsdfile.com stands out IMHO for quality and price so far.  They have two outstanding compilation/sampler albums (must have for trying out DSD on your DAC).  Additionally they have released 5 new albums in a short time period.  It seems like they are ramping things up lately.  Check them out.

Good call.

Not to be a party-pooper but could it be that there are above average QC issues with Yulong products? 

 

I remember reports of some rather "unorthodox" soldering on the D18 a while back as well.

      Thanks MrCasey..definitely trying everything to avoid having to ship it back to China.

     I bought my DA8 through Grant Fidelity , it is part of their warranty that the customers are responsible for shipping back to them  ..unfortunately I did not read this before making the order.

     TIA

Shipping back to GF is not the same as shipping back to China. GF is located in Calgary. I suspect you will be promptly looked after.
