    Phonak Audeo (PFE) Thread

    I've actually just been washing my grey filters in warm distilled water when they seem like they have changed in sound or particularly when a set of filters makes each ear sound different. After washing both ears sound identical again and everything sounds as crisp as a fresh pair of grey...

    The All-New WA7 Fireflies from Woo Audio

      FWIW I am seeing this exact same behavior on any PC I use my WA 7 with.  I bought mine in August 2013 but the issue didn't start until a few months ago.  I have to let the WA 7 warm up for many minutes before it will finally show it's DAC to the computer.  This happens whether or not drivers...

    WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!!

      I'm not sure what a tube heater coil is.  Sorry I am a noob with tubes.   https://www.google.com/search?btnG=1&pws=0&q=wa7+led+enhanced+tube+glow   From what I can tell, my WA7 has an orange LED directly at the base of each tube socket which is what is responsible for 99% of the orange...

    Phonak Audeo (PFE) Thread

    Quote: They said it's shutting down in March, but I was able to order my audio filters on April 2nd still.  I think it says they will remain selling until stock is depleted.

    24bit vs 16bit, the myth exploded!

    I understand that more bits doesn't mean higher quality. It's obvious because DSD is only a 1bit signal yet it's much higher fidelity than 16bit CD. My question to this is how does a 1bit DSD recorded stream compare then to these 16bit or 24bit streams. Direct Stream Digital - Wikipedia...

    USB to Digital Coax 24Bit?

    Yeah, the creative was everything I needed until I found out I can do pass-through via HDMI and Optical so my receiver can do the decoding.

    USB to Digital Coax 24Bit?

    Is this not 24bit? DTS 96/24 DTS 96/24 allows the delivery of 5.1 channels of 24-bit, 96 kHz audio and high quality video on the DVD-Video format. Prior to the invention of DTS 96/24, it was only possible to deliver two channels of 24-bit, 96 kHz audio on DVD-Video. DTS 96/24 can also be...

    USB to Digital Coax 24Bit?

    I guess I realize that it isn't a simple task to convert USB to SPDIF. The difficult part is reducing jitter and dealing with the full 24bits on USB. What I guess I meant by simple was no A/D or D/A converting. I figured it would be simpler and cheaper if it didn't have to convert between...

    USB to Digital Coax 24Bit?

    After some more playing around I found my solution and I'm closing this thread. It turns out I can hook my Laptop to my TV via HDMI and hook my TV to my Receiver via Toslink and enable SPDIF pass-through on my Laptop and the bit stream AC3 or DTS passes right through my TV to my Receiver...

    USB to Digital Coax 24Bit?

    Hi all, I'm looking for a device for my laptop that will convert from USB to digital coaxial so I can hook my laptop up to a home theater receiver to send over DD and DTS signals. I believe it needs to support 24bit for the DD and DTS signals. Thanks

    Cannot bypass KMixer?

    Thanks guys. I really do appreciate the help and such. I am using 64bit but I can't get the 64bit plug-in to work. It says the plug-in can't be started. I only assumed I was having a problem from reading other posts here where people stated if the volume slider was still functional then I...

    Cannot bypass KMixer?

    That is the plug-in I have been using. I'm new to this bit-perfect stuff but not new to computers or Winamp. I's a software developer but I just can't get this to work. I'd be willing to let someone remote control my desktop via VNC if they want. They would have to use hamachi to first to VPN...

    Cannot bypass KMixer?

    I'll give it a try on my XP machine tonight to see if it works there.

    Cannot bypass KMixer?

    Yes, I used ASIO4ALL in conjunction with the ASIO out plugin and can see it running correctly in the status bar by the clock in Vista. However, I was under the impression that a bit-perfect stream that bypassed the KMixer would mean that it couldn't be modified by the volume slider in Vista.

    Cannot bypass KMixer?

    Here is what I have tried so far: Winamp Plugins: Kernel Streaming ASIO WASAPI Foobar2000 Plugins: Kernel Streaming ASIO WASAPI My Hardware: Travagans White DAC/Amp with Burr-Brown Japan PCM2702 No matter WHAT player/plug-in I use, the volume slider in Windows Vista can still...
