Something went wrong in my instalation or that's the way it is??

Why you are using KS on the PC? ASIO is better. What OS are you using?

I said it as an example about the 24 vs 32 bit matter... I am using Win8.1

just did my update to 4.0.

Audio Midi shows same.

 

using Audirvana+, it recognizes DAC as 24/384.

but Auto Detection does not recognize "light up" DSD64 or DSD128.

still must select

 DSD Over PCM

I think that this is mostly a windows update!! :)

true, yet the fact that this is the official iDSD nano firmware to allow it to function on Apple computers with USB 3.0 chips also makes it relevant to non-Windows.

The easy way is to open a support ticket on the IFI web site. It took me less than an hour to get it. You will also get a updated driver that works.

Thanks.

That is the first thing I did, it has been two hours now and no response. I'm guessing they are close at this hour.

Did anyone manage to install iDSD Win driver (v2.20.0) under 64b Win7? I was able to install the previous version (v2.19.0) before but not the new version. It looks like the new driver was compiled for 32b exclusively and Win7 message was to "contact the software provider to get the correct Win version". This is on Mac Mini (2011) bootcamp. Strange.

 

Also, do I need to open a service ticket to roll back to the previous firmware or can I download it from Web?

You have to open a service ticket to get the correct file. I had and a few others the same problem.

Could be, I don't know but JRiver (Mac) and Audio Midi (Apple) also failed to recognise the new features. I suspect (on Macs anyway) it feels like a firmware issue. On top of that, actually I get 24bit instead of 32bit now.

curious to hear if ASIO 2.2 for DSD sound 'better' than DoP. I like ASIO for PCM better than WASAPI.

Previous with the old driver 3.30 I find that DSD128 was a bit laid back and weaker than DSD64 but after the upgrade it sounded much better and the levels match better with the PCM counterpart. If fact I am going to make J.River default to 2xDSD using ASIO 2.2 for native DSD streaming without DoP when playing any PCM files. I just get a better sense of the acoustical space in the recordings.

Hi,

 

This is the Windows Smartscreen Filter in action.

 

You need to disable.

BUT, if you open a ticket with tech support, one of our guys will email you the files directly so you wont have that issue.

 

The joys of computer audio.
