Tricone posted a topic in SoftwareI wasn't sure if this should be posted in the DAC subforum, or here in Software. Obviously, I started with the latter. Here goes . . I'm very new to CA, having just downloaded Audirvana Plus last night. I also purchased a few hi-res files from HDTracks. My current system is a work in progress, and consists of: Late-2013 iMac i7 --> Rega DAC (via USB) --> Linear Technology Incline speakers (via Rega's analog output) My first "audition" with a few FLACs that I had was eye-opening. I decided to purchase a couple of hi-res 192K music albums and see what they sound like. When I loaded a particular song into Audirvana's Playlist, I was expecting my Rega DAC to "recognize" that the song was at a higher resolution. However, the indicator light on the Rega's front panel remained at 44.1-48K. (I was expecting it to change to 192K). There is no selector on the Rega where one can manually change toggle the resolution. I then opened Audirvana's manual, along with the Preferences. In Preferences, I found that my Preferred Audio Device was "USB Audio DAC", and under Active Audio Device -> USB Audio DAC, only 44.1 and 48 where lit green, with the other higher res bit rates grayed-out. Surprisingly, when I toggled the Preferred Audio Device to "Built-In Output", then everything from 44.1 to 96 turned green! Sooo . . how do I "tell" the software that my hardware DAC is capable of a 192K resolution?
usernaim250 posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionHi, I've been away a while but I have a practical question. I need to stream toslink or possibly galvanically isolated coaxial from my desktop W7 computer, and $200 is my upper limit. Options are a)internal soundcard, b)install a firewire port and use a firewire interface with toslink out, c)usb interface (preferably with asynchronous transfer), d)wireless streamer (which could then have coax out), e)network streamer (would need toslink), f)any old usb interface, followed by a coax to toslink converter. Requirements are a)no electrical connection to the sound system, b)24/96, c)under $200 Desires are a)sound quality, b)not having to mess with drivers, c)transferability (i.e. a soundcard is at a disadvantage). What seems to come up is ESI Juli@ internal soundcard, Musical Fidelity V-Link, and M2Tech HiFace. I'm interested in a) operational notes and caveats about any of the above b) relevant sonic comparisons c) other options which meet my criteria Thank you.
