REVIEW - Yulong Audio Sabre DA8 Reference DAC - Page 52

post #766 of 1394

Did you guys check your sound card settings via windows? I assume that you guys have the yulong card as the default and/or primary source?

Yup, yulong audio usb driver on default.

Ok, just send it back. Given youve cross checked everything and the problem is still apparent, it could very well be the DA8. Just wanted to make sure that eveything was set properly on your end before you actually send it in. Good luck to you :)

From Yulong (if someone is registered in the JRiver forum he can post there the link...):

 

"Thank you, please try new driver 1.057 and asio updated available:

 

http://yulongaudio.com/Files/others/JR%20iver%20New%20asio.zip

 

the setup is a full one, it installs automatically 32bit or 64bit version and ASIO support too.

It can require to remove from the control panel a previous Asio installed.

I think it can solve the problem depicted on the forum.

Merry Christmas"

As for the 1 second lag, it is not a problem with the Yulong but rather a software problem with WASAPI.

I wrote this post: http://www.head-fi.org/t/673033/review-yulong-audio-sabre-da8-reference-dac/735#post_10089031 but after I've posted it my friend told to me that there was something (Tape? Protective film? Other...) inside the USB connector on the Yulong. He used a pair of tweezers and removed "the intruder". 

Until now he had no other problems and everything seems to work correctly

For me, the 1 second delay does not occur when I use the standard Yulong output via USB. However, if I am trying to do something "fancy" like WASAPI or ASIO, the delay exists.

 

So there can't possibly be an issue with my unit, can there?

Is that JRiver specific or standard ASIO, listed on web site as "JRiver new ASIO", the old driver is still there as "SABRE DA8 Driver"?

post #773 of 1394

I don't have (yet) the Yulong and I am a Mac user. I wrote to Yulong regarding the 3ad in JRiver forum, he says it was a problem with the Amanero board and JRiver. Today he sent to me this mail with the link and I've posted on this forum.

My friend has tried it today (with JRiver...) and says that everything works perfectly: I do not know more. Write to Yulong :wink_face:

post #774 of 1394

Just wiped out and installed new "JRiver ASIO driver". I think it's mislabeled as It's actually the full package, which includes the windows wdm driver as well as asio.

Works with foobar2000 as well. 

 

Thanks for heads up! :beerchug:

Correct, its likely to be something else

post #777 of 1394

And thanks Esprit for the update!

 

Just finished installing the new driver, the ASIO driver is working perfectly with Jriver.

Do you have the issue on individual dsf files or when playing SACD ISO image?

I tried a SACD last night and the clicking/popping is still there. After changing the USB and reinstalling everything the issue is greatly minimized. The pops are isolated to start of songs (2 pops) and if I'm fast forwarding or manually changing tracks.

 

I'm going to try Jriver tonight and plan on installing a new windows onto my new SSD drive. My old SSD drive is completely maxed out and my computer has been a bit sluggish.

I say reformat your computer, re-install windows fresh as well as all your drivers and then install the DA8. I can guarantee you that itll fix it, if of course the DA8 isnt faulty.
