    Thanks for the confirmation.

    +1 (Thanks), I am considering the DI2014 / M7 combo... anyone using JPlay with the AudioGD USB-32 drivers?
  3. rdsu

    Yes, they works, but the lowest value for buffer that you can get is 128 for Kernel Streaming, equivalent of 1 for WASAPI, and only River or Beach engines work...

    Hi rdsu,
    Thanks for the details.. I still have an Audio-GD DI-V3 in the closet which seems to have a more fuller/organic sound than the WFS uLink I am currently using.
    The uLink is XMOS - JPlay buffers set at direct with US at 100, powered by iFi iUSB, and everything sounds really great going into an AudioGD NOS1704 DAC.
    I was hoping the latest USB32 firmware played better with JPlay, but I have a pretty good dedicated server now, so I think I can explore other playback software options that are a better fit for the Audio-GD USB32... I am thinking especially the M7 oversampling options and the ACSS outputs (I have a Master 1 preamp) may be a nice upgrade to my system.
    Thanks again...

    I forgot to mention that this was my experience until June of this year.

    Maybe this latests driver/firmware versions could handle lower values, and then could use other engines on JPlay... :wink:
  6. motberg
    That is what I am hoping also... if I remember correctly, I was using the JPlay Xtreem engine with 256 or higher buffer value... it was very good SQ.... but since seems most folks prefer the Ultrastream engine option if available, so I tried the WFS uLink and that really hooks-up well with JPlay...
    Anyone else notice a DI-2015 was recently shipped ??  Maybe a typo...

    That was certainly a typo, me thinks [​IMG]

    Refer to the Audio-gd website for the latest Firmware and Drivers.  If you don’t have the latest version, update your system and enjoy the music……

    With my new NFB1 and the USB32 deriver version 1, I only managed to get it to work with Audio-GD WASAPI under Jplay, with about 4 buffers. SQ is good. No DSD, only PCM materials. 
    But Audio-GD KS it gave me no sound at all. Don't know where the problem is.
    Anyone with better experience?
  13. conquerator2

    I had many problems with the drivers.
    Keep trying (re-installing different drivers, changing firmware, etc...)
    Troubleshoot and It should eventually work.:)

    I had a 2013 model DI-V3 working KS with JPlay but very high buffers and did not work with the Ultrastream engine. I needed to use Xtreem for the best quality - and also should adjust the US Ultrasize setting in the registry settings.  
  15. mtan002

    Managed to get Jplay Extream engine to work with KS Audio-GD to play both PCM and DSD materials. Buffer settings are as followed:
    Buffer - 128
    96Buffer - 256
    192Buffer - 512
    With these settings, KS Audio-GD works both on Jplaymini and also under Jriver with Jplay ASIO as the device. Set the buffer with Jplaysettings.
