For those with DirectStream DACs we have just release version 1.1.7. This new version fixes the occasional Bridge freeze problem - which obviously applies only to those of you with a Bridge installed.
Also, I changed the firmware nomenclature of the other versions from 5407, and 6115, to their official release names, 1.1.5 and 1.1.6.
So DS were originally released with 1.1.5. We then went to 1.1.6, which allowed DXD to work on DirectStream as well as fixed a few display problems and made the volume control smoother. 1.1.7 is what all DS will be shipping with from now on.
For those of you in the know, 1.1.7 is based on FPGA version 6115, as is 1.1.6.
You can access the files in the Downloads section of our website.
To update a DirectStream, UNZIP the files you download so you see the multiple files of the download. Copy those multiple files to a blank SD Card, 2GB preferred, and place it in the DSD card slot, located below the Bridge slot on the rear of DirectStream. Make sure the gold pins of the SD card face up (card in upside down), make sure it clicks in place. Power Cycle DirectStream using the rear panel power switch. The front panel PS logo light should blink. Wait until it reboots. Remove the card.
You can check to make sure the version is correct by touching the small tool icon on the upper left side of the DS touch screen. The version should read as version 1.1.7.
