JDS Labs Element - Page 38

post #556 of 565
Well my JDS Labs Element is awesome but I've found a small problem,

Windows 10 & Plex, OpenPHT or normal Plex Home Theatre, run 2 or more screens (I have 3) the Element seems to cause Plex to freeze anywhere from 10 - 60 seconds when you alt-tab back into it...

I first thought it was just my main PC being spazzy because I also have Voicemeeter with a Virtual Cable setup to split my audio for game recording (which can cause conflicts) but I tested it with my tablet (running Win10 Pro) and it does the same thing with a second screen mad.gif a single screen is fine even alt-tabbing heaps Plex doesn't freeze.

I've spent the last 3 days testing this with a lot of uninstalls, reinstalls and god knows how many restarts, I let Windows automatically install the drivers for the Element, I reinstalled Plex 4 times both OpenPHT and normal, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Voicemeeter and the Virtual Cable, I even went as far as hunting through the registry to delete every entry of my last setup but it's still causing a problem somewhere with Plex.

Now before people rip my head off by saying it's Plex and not the Element, I had the JDS Labs O2 & ODAC on this exact same setup for the last 3 years without a problem but since switching to the Element I've had this happening, I do have a HDMI cable to one of my monitors but I have no drivers installed for it, the only audio devices are Voicemeeter a Virtual Cable and the Element. I'm over on the Plex forums trying to work this out to because obviously this shouldn't be happening.

Has anyone else had this problem or am I just the really super special lucky one frown.gif?


Nevermind.

Just got my Element. Was really surprised when I got a free upgrade to the Audio Line In + Out coupled with $20 off on Black Friday. Thanks for the customer service JDS!

I've got to say the customer support from jds labs is the best I've come across, John Seaber, wherever you are, I want to thank you personally. Always reply within 5 minutes of me sending an email, I don't know how you do it!

Just order an element mainly for the hd700's, but it seems like people are having problems with running desktop speakers? Any workaround or model suggests for something small? The Audioengine a2+ didn't work for volume reason I saw in the thread

How will this compare bottle head cracking for hd650 ?

Hi

Anyone could tell me your opinion buying it with the XDUOO XD-05?

Thanks!

I was actually curious of the same thing. Deciding on either a Mangi, or spending some extra cash and going either JDS or Bottlehead

In my opinion, this is one of the best looking desktop combos out there. Anyone have experience on how this sounds through IEM's?

I listen on UE18 IEM's with the mic cable.  Clarity is incredible with the Element.

Kinda wish it was an option to have a 3.5mm jack since it would have saved on making a custom cable to adapt it.

I got one made to avoid the Adapter Stuff.

I've used Element with Er4sr , Noble Savanna or earbud like sennheiser mx475 or VE-monk espresso. 
It's all working fine with low-gain mode. My savanna was at around 10-11 o'clock at maximum even when listening to classical tunes with quiet ambient background.
