Is the noise/pops only on Windows machines ? OSX OK ?
It was Windows 7 64bit,HRT will work with you though if there problems. I don't have any apple devices so don't know if there are problems with OSX as well.
Lowering the buffer to 25-50 ms fixes problems like that
Excellent, may try and pick one up.....kind of off the Sabre style now...will sacrifice a bit of detail for musicality as that is the bottom line...listening to music vs analysis !
Are there any older versions of this DAC that were a bit buggy etc ? I'm thinking of picking one up used vs new.
Also, does it work with USB 3.0 connections with no problem ?
Just thinking of any future upgrades of my OSX machine which is USB 2.0 just now and reading some USB DAC's having issues with USB 3.0.
AFAIK, the only known bugs with this guy are with Windows machines and are fixable by update.
it works with USB 3, I used mine on a USB3 hub, but it crashed though from time to time even when I hooked it up directly to the laptop.
Hi, can anyone tell me the USB port type on the unit ?
USB female port but then it is one of the smaller USB plugs that insert into it...?
Anyone know if it has some form of galvanic isolation built-in or should I use a USB noise isolator like Teradak clean 5V USB power to nudge things up a bit with power consistency/black background ?
This would work with porting the unit to external linear 5V power I think.
Any guesses how good would HRT's new dSp / i-dSp Kickstarter project could be?. It looks like a variation of the microStreamer with just a headphone output. The specs:
Sample rate up to 96 kHz (same as microStreamer)
Bit depth up to 24 bit (same as microStreamer)
Full Scale output 1.75 Volts RMS (vs microStreamer = 1.4 Volts)
Output impedance .5 Ohm (same as microStreamer)
S/N Ratio (A-weighted) 106 dB (vs microStreamer = 102 dB)
Noise floor (A-weighed) 8 uV RMS (vs microStreamer = 18 uVolts)
Frequency Response (20 Hz / 20 kHz) +0 dB / -.2 dB (vs microStreamer +0db / -.4dB)
Power requirements 50 mA (vs microStreamer 100 mA)
Here's the link to the Kickstarter page:
Anyone running Fostex T50RP off the HRT MS ? Bass control OK or a bit lacking ?
Anyone moving on up from their microstreamer give me a PM...Looking for one used !
I asked this question in the other thread and want to ask it here too:
What do mS owners think would be a good upgrade? Anything under $400?
Needs to have:
- its own power supply (an obvious upgrade)
- USB async
- stereo RCA would be good
Are you using it as a dac/amp combo or just dac?
