So I have never really had a problem with any firmwares, after many years of ownership and all of the various firmwares, and my surrounding system has stayed pretty consistent.
But after downloading 3.06, and loading it up, my digital will just randomly die at weird intervals.
And to get the sound back the only thing that has worked is re-booting the entire DAC.
I have spent maybe 10-12 hours of listening to 3.06 and my sound has died about 8 times. Sometimes it has happened after a few minutes, another time it went for about 4 hours before doing it once.
My front end consists of a Bryston BDP-2 using a Sablon Audio USB cable.
In the past with other firmwares, I have had the Bryston lose sync, and I have had to hard unplug the Bryston PC, plug it back in then make sure its USB output is re-enabled. Annoying, but it has only happened like once every 2-3 months. So not a big deal.
But with this new firmware, the drops are way too frequent. And like I said the first time this new dropout occurred, I tried that same routine, but it had no effect. Again the only thing that worked was re-starting the DSD.
So far I have re-downloaded the 3.06 files, re-formatted and tried different SD cards, downgraded to old firmwares before re-uploading 3.06, etc.
I haven’t tried uploading firmware, turning off DAC, and popping out the SD card before turning it back on.
Any ideas what may be happening? So far I think I like 3.06 more than 3.00, thus I would like to solve this so I can reliably listen.
