OK, I believe I'm connected to USB 3 (a Faunix Lab Brick powered USB port, to which I have the GO 1K hooked). Think that is how it has been. The final problem seems to be that JRiver crashes when there is a surge from the usb port, and I can't use JRiver without rebooting computer (get an error message about settings being incorrect,, but can't find anything to correct when I go into settings). Would I be better off with Foobar or another player?
I have to say this is happening often enough to make me not want to use GO1K, good sound and all. I'm becoming more likely to pick up my iBasso DX90 and listen (I prefer to be untethered, anyway, but was sitting at the computer because of how good the sound is). the DX90 can also be used as DA converter/amp, like GO, though I haven't tried it yet. If something doesn;t give, likely will get rid of the Geek gear and find stuff that works without so much trouble (I still get the deafening volume when I plug the GO in, which is every time I have to reboot due to the above problem. Coupled with the inability to figure out how to get sound out of my speakers, from the browser, and it's getting so the good sound alone isn't enough. I posted on the Geek site, Gaven told me to enter a ticket, but haven't heard anything back from them, been 3 days or so (I know they're busy, but, hey, this is the only support one can get on this kind of product).
(I originally posted this on the other Geek Out thread, but figured if someone reads this one and not that, worth posting both areas). Any suggestions appreciated.
