New XMOS-XU208-device / Leaf Audio 2017/8/2 / Thesycon eval. driver 4.13
after i´ve decided to give my “good-old” very good Skysong XMOS-XU208 a rest/use it only on my raspberry via volumio and usb to get finally real DSD/Dop (means DSD-lock-light is on (on the ES9038Q2M))(more later/in a later post), i´ve ordered a second device via ebay/cost around 30€, its a “Leaf Audio” with also an external 5V-option + Coaxial-out (up to 192khz)
first impression: very light (in weight), but looks relatively “hi-fi”; first sound-tests: very “exactly/with contur”, but not so with the fine resolution as the Skysong->it depends also on the oscillators on the board (see pictures)->this is the “cheap”-version..the skysong has more high-end-ones..(but the skysong costs double of the price (around 60€)..
“Driver-wise” it installed “Microsoft HiFi-DSD” (never seen it before), thought it would install “xmos-usb” or similar..
for that i couldnt got the driver from the seller, i searched for some and because i also got a “XMOS DFU” in the device manager i´ve downloaded some driver-pack from thesycon with dfu support; its here (link) (see pictures)..
many greets for now !! 😉
