Hearing windows jingle at startup

Hi all. Maybe I am mis remembering. But it seems recently when I reboot my pc I hear the windows jingle thru my speakers. The sound the laptop makes typically on startup. I don’t recall this in the past. Is it possible the incorrect driver is being used or is this typical ? I’m just usb out / matrix / DS. Thx.

Sounds like Windows has decided your DAC is the windows default sound output.

Prob better to set the built in sound as the default - then it gets the silly noises (and/or turn all sounds off) and then your player software can be set specifically to use the external DAC.
