    Not very promising Mine is number 00184 and sure could not be updated... But it s a good DAC, you can use a Linux Rpi for an endpoint and the drivers are Ok. I just had a MicroRendu and it worked right away and improved sound quality quite a lot.

    I'll drop them an email and see what they say. What a shame, ive been listening the CDs all day and it's stunningly good. Trouble is, I don't want to listen to CDs I wanted to use my Hi-Res files.

    This will probably end up for sale now. Gutted.

    Hm,

    With a good PS it is quite capable, I had a sigma11 and it made a great combo. M2Tech has Marco Manunta who is a great engineer, he kind of invented the whole USB DAC thing with the M2Tech Hiface and started a revolution. The Young was one of the first ever to be able to play 32/384, I think in that early days of digital upsampling he had his own algorithm that upsampled everything inside to 768kHz and that is why it sounds so good.

    Of course if you get a good price for it and you can upgrade to a Chord Qutest that is another story but if you like what you are hearing a MicroRendu would do miracles to it, one of the older versions could be bought cheap.

    I have a very good linear PSU with it. The PSU case (Glued) has separated slight in the post so will need a minor repair but the DAC sounds absolutely fantastic. Its made me see there is light in the Digital tunnel.

    I don't really want to go down the route of buying more bits and pieces. I wanted to use USB direct even though it's probably no where near Hi Fidelity. It's more about being able to listen to my HiRes files on the main system. If it can't provide that function, I'll sell it and try something that will. Just disappointing as it sounds fantastic.

    Have you tried Win7 drivers and the like?
    Win10 is supposed to be retro compatible.

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    I haven't done anything yet, got a massive presentation to do tomorrow so just Plummer the CDP in and enjoyed it all day while I've worked.

    Ok, tried every driver on their page and nothing. Not a single note.

    Bollocks.
