    I'm interested in having the 2014 version for the DI V3 as I'm not using foobar and don't find a good wasapi plugin for my player.   I hope they are going to release their new driver "special DI V3" soon!

    I didn't tried PSU vs no PSU on the V3, but it was a nice improvement for my V1, worth the upgrade considering the price.

    Quote:   So do I. I have green firware by default and received green as second firmware. Is the black asynch and green adaptative? If some here tried both, could you please report what real differences you found about sound signature?

    I personally let my PSU for DI-V1 on all the time, and I didn't have any trouble with it for the last past two years, so I think you can do the same with the V3.

    For those using the PSU + USB input on the DI and who want to get rid of USB power completely (and its noise), I found a quick and easy workaround not requiring cable surgery:     I've read on some websites that many DAC won't work without USB power, obviously. But we shouldn't be limited...

    I'm asking myself the same question about upsampling on the V3. If there is any upsampling, it looks like you can't change the rate like on the V1. I think it may be non-upsampling then, avoiding compatibility trouble with some DACs.

    I'm not surprised by what you say, as the more my USB to SPDIF converters were improving, the crappiest bad recordings sounded. I'm prepared to that, and even if I regret sometimes to be able to listen to some (bad) records which I enjoyed on my PC sound card at least 5 or 6 years ago, the...

    I think I'm going to pull the trigger on the V3 and give it a try myself.   Is the TCXO clock the exact same as the one used in the V1? It looks like it is. As I already have one, I may keep it and try it in the V3.   By the way, would you say that the improvements are quite subtle or...

    Did you do some A/B tests to feel the improvements a bit better ? I've the DI-V1 in my setup (DAC19 + C2) and wanted to upgrade to V2 but the V3 defeat it and doesn't suffer from the driver issues so I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on the V3. I'm quite affraid about the V3 being too...

    Quote:     Looking forward to reading your review about that.   I wonder if the DAC19-DSP would do better with direct input into TE8802 rather than using the old DI + PSU, did you try comparing something of the sort BTW?

    Guys, please do let us know how the new DIs goes in comparison with the previous version, if the improvements are subtle or striking.

    I wouldn't be surprised too if he had these variations on ground measures from one measure to another using the same cable.

    Quote:   I hope so! I'm tempted by the new DI I must say. I'm glad to see somebody else here use the adapter thing because I tried to promote it a bit a while ago to help people upgrade their setup for cheap but nobody took it in consideration so I let it be.

    Quote:   I know what you mean. I had the same feelings when I switched from the jkeny modified HiFace to the DI, I didn't found the HiFace to sound muddy or veiled but it couldn't compete when swapping it directly with the DI. I don't know if the DI V2 will sound as good as the U3 but...

    What USB chip do you have in the Stello U3 ? Do you think most of the improvements come from asynch mode ? Was it a real leap ahead in comparison with the DI + PSU or was it quite subtle though obviously better ?
