I'm new to this forum. If my question is rudimentary, I apologize in advance. I'm interested in using the SOtM tX-USBexp USB card in a Windows 7 rig but have read that there are driver problems. Computer Audiophile reviewed the tx-USBexp card in December 2012 and indicated that there was a problem with the drivers for Windows 7. The review noted: "The SOtM tX-USBexp has been problematic under certain conditions. When using the card with Windows 7 I had many issues including very distorted sound and stuttering during playback. This was unacceptable so I stopped using the card with Windows 7. I tracked the issue down to the drivers included with the card from SOtM. USB 3.0 was not included in any PCs when Windows 7 was released and Microsoft still hasn't included native support for USB 3.0 devices. Question: Anyone know if there are updated drivers for the SOtM TX-USBexp card that will work in a Windows 7 rig? If not, is there another USB card that is available for the purpose of sending data from the computer to an external DAC? Thanks for your reply.
skumber posted a topic in SoftwareAn interesting problem with windows 8 and my ultrafi dac (which has no problems with windows 7). Attach the usb cable, it detects, then the driver install hangs in the middle. It will stay there for an hour if you let it, but I cancel. It shows up in the sound devices fine, but in the properties the resolution is limited to 16/48K. Will not play any hi-res material unless downsampled to 48k, as instructed by the driver, obviously. Has happened to 2 installs now (both samsung notebooks) but my feeling is it is driver signing or something. Any clues or insights into Windows 8 usb audio drivers? Thanks much in advance for your help.
