Am I looking in the wrong place? I can’t find the NPC Windows drivers. Can someone please tell me where to find them?
I had them installed on another PC, and was easily able to find them. But have decided to record LPs from a different PC - a clean install. And now - a month or two later - can’t find the drivers anywhere.
Under the “Driver Downloads” tab on the “Downloads” webpage I did find a driver described as “USB DAC Driver DirectStream, DirectStream Jr, PWD, NuWave, Sprout”. Last time I thought NPC was separate. But since this was the only one, I though since it said “NuWave” in the description, maybe it was all NuWave products? So I installed it. And it looked like it worked. Under Control Panel/Sounds/Recording there was a “PS Audio NuWave Phono” device listed.
But when I drill into the properties for the device, under the “Advanced” tab, the Default Format option for sample rate and bit depth are as follows:
- 2 channel, 16 bit, 176400 Hz (Studio Quality)
- 2 channel, 24 bit, 176400 Hz
“If you have DSD selected on the NPC as the audio format you wish to use, the format select window in the Windows Advanced Properties screen will display only two available sample rates: 176.4kHz and 352.8kHz.”
Since I do have DSD selected on the NPC, and I’m not seeing those options, I must have installed the wrong driver. Can someone point me to the right one please?
