    Singxer SU-1 Owners

    The driver by Holo works better for me, too (good sound and no clicks, no pops), but I still need to turn on the SU-1 at least once a day if I want it to continue to be recognized by Windows 10. If I don’t do that, I need to reinstall the driver whatever it is. Not sure if my trouble can be...

    Singxer SU-1 Owners

    What do you mean by MBP? How can Windows 10 recognize an external drive, like the SU-1, without installing a specific driver?

    Singxer SU-1 Owners

    Well, I don’t like the Singxer v.4.36 driver, but I would give Holo v4.35 a try. Please, can you give a link to the download? I can’t find any at the moment. Thank you

    Please, help! I’m having the following issue from a mounth or so: at every start up the Singxer SU-1 is not recognized by Windows 10 althgouh the driver (by Holo v3.40) is installed. Once unistalled and re-installed the same driver everything back to work. Very annoying! How can I solve...

    Please, if you want, send them an email mentioning the DSD 512 issue we are talking about here. I’m pretty sure they will never answer; but who knows: if they were so kind with you like you said...

    Gustard X20 DAC

    Yesterday I saw my message published in the community section on their facebook page, but now it's not there anymore. They deleted it... Well, due that kind of interest in helping their customers, I will never buy one of their products anymore, no matter how good they are. A similar experience...

    Gustard Audio seems to have a page on facebook, so I tried to place a message there (now it's under review). Let's stay to see if they will publish it with an answer...

    Gustard X20 DAC

    No, it doesn't. I wouldn't call this *** white noise, it is more like an hiss. I uploaded a brief home made video of the thing on Youtube. Please, listen to the thing and look at the display: I don't know what the cause may be, but I would not waste my money again for a crappy interface like...

    Gustard X20 DAC

    Hello, yes the i7-7700K speed, up to 4,50 Ghz, solved the issue regarding the intermittent sound while playing DSD 512. However, I'm experimenting almost the same issue mentioned by some of you guys: my Singxer SU-1 (firmware v2.22 & Holo driver v3.40.0) is connected to Gustard X20U via i2s...

    A powerful but really silent/quiet/mute desktop computer: how to do?

    As far my insane idea of putting a blu ray burner into the PC case, note that: 1. I want to get one computer only for home. I am very sorry but I can’t own two, three or more computers depending from the use. 2. I use it for work and for music: in any case I save my files into blu ray-r...

    A powerful but really silent/quiet/mute desktop computer: how to do?

    Of course a completly silent (& powerful) computer is my goal, it would be a dream that comes true after more than 15 years of damned fans. To be honest, €579 plus shipping is an high price for a system that basically consists in a couple of passive coolers. They also wrote that the price will...

    A powerful but really silent/quiet/mute desktop computer: how to do?

    Thank you so much for the big answer! (But I need to read it carefully again.) CALYOS NSG S0 seems really to be a solution without compromise in terms of silence & performance. However, aside the price (around €500 or more?) and how/where to buy it, I’m trying to understand how customizable it...

    A powerful but really silent/quiet/mute desktop computer: how to do?

    Hello to everyone, I’m planning to buy a new desktop PC that must be powerful (for DSD 512) but really mute like a dead. As CPU I was looking at the Intel i7-7700K or maybe the new i7-8700K; or maybe an Intel i9. (I didn’t know these last existed!) I don’t need any specific graphic card at...

    Gustard X20 DAC

    Hello to everybody. I finally received the Singxer SU-1 interface and then I connected it to the Gustard DAC X20U. Thanks to MKHunt’s help I updated and installed all the requested softwares, and now I can display the beloved DSD 512. Yes, I can do that, but I’m really disappointed at the...

    Gustard X20 DAC

    Please, help: I’m receiving the Singxer SU-1 soon the incoming week… Thanks a lot for the guide. Are the mentioned Holo Audio drivers for Windows 7/8 or 10 (v3.40.0) the ones available here: https://kitsunehifi.com/product/springdacgreen/ ? And where do I find the firmware v2.22 for the...

     @Quadman, thanks for the answer. Looking at the first picture on post #925, the only solderings I see are the ones on the DXIO 768K card. (By the way, why didn’t you use dupont female pins instead?) I also see a couple of white cables going under Gustard’s internal board, but where do they end...

    Gustard X20 DAC

    Well, after looking at your work, it’s embarrassing for me to say that I connect my Gustard X20U just through one of the USB outputs on the motherboard (an Asus P5QL PRO). That’s all.   Since I’m understanding little by little, I realize just now that you pulled out the original i2s card from...

    I'm trying right now, but i get no sound. I connected the X20U to my two monoblocks Xindak PA-1, with no result.   Anyone else here, maybe Stuart?

    @Gio, sorry: i mean that it started working with an old version (0.7.2); it doesn’t with the latest ones 0.7.3 and 0.8.1. I don't know why.   :)

    @stuartmc, does your X20U play DSD ? Please, let me know.   There is no way for me. I  think i tried every possible set up, getting always the same playback error "could not query sample rate". I installed the latest ASIO Proxy driver v0.8.1   Another question about the SACD menu: is it...

    @GioF71, thanks for suggesting but DSD over PCM doesn't work for me. The display always shows "Source USB PCM"...   Also, does anyone know how to connect X20U and PC via IIS ? Seems another issue pretty hard to address...

    Gustard Amplifiers and DACs

    Yes, that output is available and was selected.   I think that something is wrong into the SACD menu. Please, look at the picture here: http://i1230.photobucket.com/albums/ee483/Uomo_Avvisato/Videoproiettore/problema%20foobar%20DSD_zpsbboay2bk.png .   I see no "ASIO Driver Mode" in the menu...
