No problems here. Listening to Adele's live performance "Live At The Royal Albert Hall", DA8's sound stage + Well recorded live album = Win
Double checked everything and still getting the lag/popping noises on the DSD files. The popping occurs when starting the track, or fast forwarding.
The audio quality itself is amazing with the DSD.
To be more transparent: Using Foobar2k. Audioquest forrest USB cable for connection. Maybe I will try winamp with WASAPI next to see if the problem is still there.
Try to play with ASIO buffer, try enabling file buffering in Foobar/Advanced/Playback section, or if it's already set to too high, set to 0. I am not sure fast forward ever works with DSD but I did experience some lags or pops on beginning of the tracks with material located on external (not the fastest) HDD, usually after OS buffers it, same file plays fine.
But I don't completely discount the possibility of the problem with your unit, contact Yulong or Grant Fidelity (if you get it from there) to help you with troubleshooting.
