I just hooked up a DragonFly to my Windows 8 pc setup (passive speakers and amp) and totally cannot hear any improvements at all.
I believe the manual suggests pc volume at 25% to max, media player (I'm using foobar) to 100% and then I guess use my amp's volume manually??? That's what I did thus far.
I selected sample rate in the Windows Setup of 44.1kHz
What the heck am I doing wrong? Or do my ears just suck?
I'll probably test this out also on a secondary Windows Vista pc
Also, not sure if this is worth mentioning, but I tried it in all 4 rear usb ports and both side ports, one of the side ports produces no sound, the other side port and 3 out of the 4 rear ports produce sound at reduced volume.....the other rear main port appears to produce full volume
