Yep tried that. It shows sound, the green bar in windows moves but no sound from the player. Also tried reinstalling it, each time it was fine and inatlled drivers and showed as it should in the sound list.

What bit rate was it set to?  Try the standard 16/44.1.

Just tested this on my system running Win10 Pro x64 and no sound.  So I guess the driver broke.

Hi. Im a noob and I'm planning to buy my first audiophile rig next month with the AK 120 on it. I'm just wondering if anyone has tried pairing it with the chord mojo and the sennheiser HD 700? I usually listen to classical music, alternative rock, 80's and early 90's music. Thanks

I'm using the AK120 with the Chord Mojo.  Astounding sound!!

 

Of course, the AK120 is only being used as a transport in this case, ouputting a digital signal to the Mojo.  Most in the Mojo thread seem to think the AK units make the best transports for the Mojo -- not sure if that's the case but it's a fine pairing. You will also need an optical cable from the Ak120 to the Mojo (AK units only have optical digital ouput.) While there a cheap toslink cables, for better sound spend the extra bucks and get the sysconcept cable or the Moon Audio. It makes a difference.

 

I like the small size of the Ak120 which pairs well with the Mojo. Plus, FWIW, if you ever need it the Ak120 has very good sound by itself, just not as good as the Mojo.

 

Many have used the Mojo with the HD800 so I think using an HD700 would be no problem at all.

 

Once again: The sound from the Mojo is astounding!
