enser posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionHey 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. I will update upon receipt of the interface. My front end audio chain will be as follows HQPlayer server (over and/or upsampling to DSD) -> cat7 to unmanaged GIGe switch (5v STR homebrew LPS powering it) -> cat 7 1m -> ethernet to fiber converter x2 (multimode LC/LC btwn converters, homebrew STR 5v LPS powering RX side converter )-> cat 7 1m -> mRendu (on 2.3... 2.5 SD card in mail) - powered by LPS-1) -> Maxtrix X-Spdif 2 USB (will be powering with another LPS-1) -> Matrix X-Spdif 2 IIS LDVS output -> Wyred4Sound Dac2v2SE IIS LDVS input (using W4S HDMI IIS LDVS cable - PS Audio/Matrix pinout interoperability appears to be the case with all 3 companies - but IIS configuration was huge selling point) This device looks killer and appears to be an ideal USB -> IIS bridge ...and that reclocking! Plus the IIS output is configurable via jumpers. I'll post impressions upon receipt. Adrian
The Computer Audiophile posted a topic in SoftwareAll 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.
