The rugged and compact rack-mount option DAC1 Heritage makes the DAC1 USB an excellent choice for location recording, broadcast facilities, and The pristine audio path of the award-winning mobile trucks. Click here for details. So my question to you then, is it possible to pass this test with the same bits coming out as went in , but have varying degrees of jitter? This is, quiet simply, testing “what-bits-go-in-and-what-bits-come-out”. Follow this link to see the Apple Airport Express on the Stereophile website: Would I be correct in thinking that latency is where I’d see the benefit from adding a traditional sound card to this mix?

Parts like the PCMx series have very little buffers. USB will operate normally over a range of 90 on most power amplifiers. To print the manual completely, please, download it. Sun Nov 01, 8: Installing so many drivers will eventually make a horrible mess of your PC but maybe creating venchmark restore point before installing a driver and performing a system restore after you’re finished can keep the situation under control.


Joined Jan 28, Messages Likes Therefore the audio clock is being derived from a source that is not the best reference for audio. The Audigy however does use a more general USB controller. The amplitude response is down by only 0.

I’m not used to spending this much on sound hardware, bejchmark it’s obviously money well-spent. Of course, this is all based sac1 my personal comparisons, using a couple of different computers and laptops and with both a M-Audio USB Audiophile as well as a Wavelength Brick and Cosecant.

Direct Monitoring – I need to be able to monitor my input without latency while recording without a hardware mixer in the signal chain. If I dial down to a 32 sample buffer size I get no audio at all on the simulation. The last post actually brings a very important point to mind Also, my experiences with ASIO devices was that it did not follow the sample-rate dynamically.

You know, its not easy for us engineers to talk right. Windows aptly named as using it makes you want to jump out a window.

The above graph shows that the performance of the DAC1 is not a function of the signal level at the XLR digital input. The only jitter you have in the system based on jitter is what we call intrinsic jitter.

I recompile with ISO setting and it works fine. Wed Mar 14, 9: For a better experience, please enable JavaScript in your browser before proceeding. Sat Dec 29, 9: So it would appear that that 64 samples is as low as I can ssio over USB 1.

All the usual genchmark that come with such a nice piece of gear were noted: Thanks Gordon Gordon, I couldn’t say it better myself. However there were 3 things that made it necessary for me to have a traditional “sound card”: The AP can measure jitter, but the bit-test is not dependent of jitter.

If you are just using it as a dac then you can consume the resources for the ADC and make longer buffers. If I used native drivers for the others, then people would complain that the two were not tested the same.
