  1. Is anyone familiar with "Assembled XU208 XMOS USB Audio Digital Interface XLR/AES/fiber/coaxial" ? (Sometime under FUN01 name) See example listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Assembled-XU208-XMOS-USB-Audio-Digital-Interface-XLR-AES-fiber-coaxial-L1611-2-/122210294479 It seems like a Singxer SU-1 just without a case. The only visible difference is the I2S is R45J instead of HDMI connection. In addition it has a 5v connection that allows using a good LPS. If this is correct it even reduces the need for tweaking the SU-1 for LPS. I wonder if this is true and if this can deliver the same SQ as SU-1. Price difference is small ~100$ vs ~400$.
  2. Hey CA, As of today I pulled the trigger on this new USB -> IIS/AES/Coax interface from Matrix (literally as in the past week or less, purchased from Shenzen Audio): MATRIX X-SPDIF 2 32Bit/768kHz DSD512 Hifi Audio USB Interface From their (Matrix) website, this is under pre-release / first batch status as of this month. I couldn't help grabbing one to try after reading the spec sheet and the native power topology - meaning the default method of supplying DC is external. Searched around on here and could only find impressions of the V1 (matrix x-spdif), so I'd thought I'd start an impressions, thoughts, etc thread on the latest rev.

    How To Install XMOS / Thesycon USB Drivers On Windows 8

    All XMOS / Thesycon USB drivers I've tried on Windows 8 32-bit version have installed just fine, but the process isn't as smooth as Windows 7 for now. Here is a quick rundown of how the installation goes. Method One: Run the Setup file to install the drivers. Receive the following popup message. This Setup cannot run on the current operating system. Supported systems are: After clicking OK the following Compatibility Assistant window will appear. Select "Run the program using compatibility settings." Some drivers will produce two messages like the following. Select "Install this driver anyway" and that's it. Method Two: This is only necessary if the compatibility feature are not enabled or if for some reason the popup doesn't appear. Find the Setup file and right click it. Select Properties. Select the Compatibility Tab, click "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select Windows 7. After the installation find the Uninstall file most likely in C:\Program Files\... and do the same thing as above by selecting Windows 7. This will allow the uninstallation to run smoothly when the time comes.
