jameslrock posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionSince I upgraded my OS X to Yosemite 10.10 on the MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012 with 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3) laptop, I now have garbled and slow playback with static sound when playing files through USB to my Esoteric K-03. I deleted the Esoteric high speed USB driver, re-booted, and re-installed the driver. I still get the same staticky, slow, garbled playback within a couple of seconds. This occurs with Audirvana Plus 2 and using the Esoteric HR Audio Player and also through Spotify. This did not occur before upgrading to Yosemite. Suggestions? Thanks, Jim
There is a free music player application on the Esoteric Japan website Products | ESOTERIC COMPANY. There are versions for both Windows and Mac. Although it is intended for Esoteric users of their DACs and CD players via the usual USB in PCM, I don't see why others can't try it with their own DACs. I've not tried this application on other DACs. The neat thing for me is that I can now play native DSD via USB through the Esoteric D1, without going through the contortions of setting up and adjusting ASIO for DSD playback on Foobar 2000. It comes complete with its own Esoteric ASIO driver which is installed automatically. There's an option to select native DSD (I assume that this is currently for Esoteric D1 only) or DSD to PCM. It will also load music to ram. It is very easy to use and sounds great on my system.
