Are driver issues still on going? Any way to use this driverless (or with Windows driver I guess) if you limit yourself to 24 / 96 playback?
Latest drivers have been working well and is stable for me under windows 10, 8 and 7. Beta firmware 029 finally fixes the issue of the slim not being detected on Windows startup/wakeup. I've had my slim for about 12 months now and it gets used daily and I'm about to join this drop for another one as an Xmas present for a friend.
I'll also note that unfortunately there's no way to use this without the CEntrance driver as far as I know.
Not a deal breaker, but disappointing. If this were driverless it'd be a no brainer, but now I have to consider the Fulla. This is obviously better spec wise, and I prefer the design so I'll probably join.
Yeah, I also have firmware 029 with latest driver and I no longer have issue on Win10. And +1 to you for sharing the goodness with your friend. So far its been my best gifts to my friends.
It's because Windows only natively supports up to 24/96. I hear there's updated support for higher res usb audio in the insider previews, but I haven't tried that out yet.
Is the decision to go with a driver (like this one, or Micca Origen) or driverless (like E10K, or Audioengine D1), an either/or proposition? I'd like for all DAC/AMPs let you operate in driverless 24/96 mode, with the option of installing driver (if any) to run higher modes. But maybe that's technically problematic to pull off; I don't know of a single DAC/AMP that gives you the choice.
Higher end stuff, like the Schiit Modi 2, has a switch for that. You can toggle between standard(24/96, driverless) and expert mode(24/192). You can see it in the manual: http://schiit.com/public/upload/PDF/modi_2_manual.pdf
The Modi itself costs the same amount as the Slim though, and it's only a DAC. Way different price league.
Taetertot...off topic but have to congratulate you on your beautiful Poodle. They are smart and wonderful companions!
Hi, so where do you download the firmware 029? thx
You have to e-mail centrance and ask for it. I believe firmware 29 is meant for beta testers. At least it was for me.
