well sh1t on me. It doesn't work, Peter.
No sound, nada. Here's the weird part. When I switch between the sound cards in Foobar, (with balanced connectors yanked.) I get sound. So basically, Foobar thinks the both cards are the same one. I rebooted, no dice.
It was working perfectly in your computer, but nada out of mine. WTF?!
I guess I'll yank it and have a looksy.*Edit*
Well, I yanked both the cards. Checked the solder joints. Everything looks good. Put only the modded card in and it works perfectly. So it's a drive issue.
I'll try to put the stock card back in later. Right now I'm enjoying the music. Holy crap, this is not
a subtle improvement.
