JRiver 19 > DirectStream No DirectStream ASIO Option


#1

I wonder why I do not get the ASIO option to select when configuring JRiver for the DirectStream. Screen shot to follow Thursday morning.

Are you using the latest JMC (19.0.136)? I have it and I get the ASiO option as well as WASAPI. I use the DS/Bridge through the Medi Centre on JR so these setting have no effect. When I use them to play music on my PC, I cannot tell the difference between ASIO & WASAPI.

Yes, latest stable version of 19 v.146? However, I stream via USB. Perhaps that is why no ASIO? Thank you for helping me.

19.0.136 is the latest version, although it is not the stable version, I have had zero issues with it and ASIO works for me via USB. I’m on a PC, windows7.

What version of windows are you running? The ASIO driver is not built into windows until Windows 7. Earlier versions of windows need a 3rd party ASIO driver.

JR 20 ASIO no problems for me.

I prepaid for JR 20 upgrade but have not received notice it was available. Is it?

PS: It is! If it wasn’t for your post I may have gone months without knowing. After all, one cannot expect JRMC to actually notify the prepaid subscribers when version 20 became available for download.

AND - I do have JR ASIO option but not a PSA/DS ASIO option - just PSA/DirectStream WASPI, Kernel, or Direct Sound. I opted for DS/WASPI.

They were waiting for a stable version to tell the peeps who purchased. I got my email today. If you still have JR 18 installed and get ASIO options with that, try upgrading to 20 from 18.

I have a Music Vault M7 that I am using as the source into the DS before it goes to my Ref 5SE preamp and then to a Bat VK 600 SE with the new Caps from the 655 SE all through SR cabling and then to Vandersteen Sevens. The Vault has JRiver 19 and I just ordered 20 although can’t download it yet. My question to the experts here is could someone provide me all the settings in JRiver for the DS. I upgraded from the PW DAC ii and after reading some posts here think maybe the MV and J River may not be set up properly for the DS. I see lots of info on Mac software but not much on using a Windows based system. Any help would be appreciated.

The only way I know how to stream spotify/ or other streaming services is to use jamcast from a PC.

Tho not a direct answer to your question there are some relevant articles in the How To section of the site:

If you can reliably send audio to the DS and (if you want to) if you can play DSD then your JRiver setup is close:

How to run a bit perfect test with DirectStream talks about how to test that you have a configuration capable of sending bit perfect audio to the DS.

How to setup JRiver 19 for DSD playback helps with the DSD part.
