ES9038Q2M/ES9018K2M: DSD (+PERFECT BITSTREAMING) WIN8.1-FOOBAR2000 (PART 3)-> DoP (352k) works !!

so, 😉
because „Krunoslav“ (again 😉 ) send us a link „Foobar 2000 for Dummies (Part 2) – Playing DSD – New SACD plugin“->https://diyaudioheaven.wordpress.com/digital/pc-software/foobar-2000-for-dummies-part-3-new-experimental-sacd-plugin-v-0-9-x/
i updated my Foobar2000 to the latest SACD-Plugin+DSD Soundprocessor (V1.10->https://sourceforge.net/projects/sacddecoder/files/foo_input_sacd/) and followed some steps to set it up..
so, first: got it to work !! but only at present here via DoP (352k) with the Skysong(Singxer)-USB-bridge+ES9038Q2M (via I2S)..(it doesnt matter for me that it isnt DSD-nativ right now):

second, first musical impressions: relatively „dry“, very low latencies i guess..have to hear here more..(but it could be more in another „league“ (DSD vs PCM))..
so, third, i fiddled a little bit around and here are now the settings which worked for me: (there could be other possibilities/ways as said)

first under „preferences“->“output“ i choose „ASIO:DSD Transcoder (DoP/Native)->

then under „output“->“ASIO“->“ASIO Drivers“->“DSD Transcoder (DoP/Native)“, double click on it and then (which is strange, because normally this Singxer-ASIO component didnt work at all until now)->“Singxer USB-Audio Device“ (no other ASIO-device works btw.)


fourth, also strange, under „preferences->tools->SACD“->“DSD+PCM“ + „352800 (PCM)“ but with „DSD Processor: None !!..“


as said, there could be other possibilities too but for me its enough for now and, as said, 2 strange things: The ASIO-Singxer-USB-Audio component works and DSD-Soundprocessor on „off“ too..(but the latter could be a little bug)..
so, and now it works here really great 😉 ..this DoP/DSD-nativ-thing is sometimes really in a different league (but that really depends on your DSD-material too)

ES9038Q2M/ES9018K2M: DSD (+PERFECT BITSTREAMING) WIN8.1-FOOBAR2000 (Part 2)

so, 😉
thx to „Krunoslav“ again, he sent us some new driver (V4.38 from matrix-digi.com) to test perfect bitstreaming via wasapi under Win8.1+Foobar+Skysong(Singxer)-XMOS-USB-bridge+ES9038Q2M->see comments->http://essabre-90xx-rpi.sfb2.com/2018/02/es9038q2m-es9018k2m-dsd-perfect-bitstreaming-win8-foobar2000/#comment-50..
unfortunately it doesnt work here for me but i will upload it to the forum anyway (LINK)..but be careful i had here very great problems with my antivir..
but curiously after installing my buffer-/“stuttering“-problems with files above 16/44,1 (now here in 24/192 no problems) with the Skysong(Singxer)-XMOS-USB-bridge+ES9038Q2M (via I2S) are gown away 😉 ..

but still these new ES9038Q2M (in any case the pcb i have here->the „blue“ one) sounds for me still like plate/sheet..(„old problem“->we still have to evaluate if its a „shitty“ pcb/components and if the „green“ ones sound better)..

DIY: Relay-controlled source-/filter selection ES9038Q2M (Arduino)

so, 😉
because i´m really stupid and really don´t know how to accomplish a „jumper-substitution“ and after reading in some Arduino-forums, i came to the idea of buying some relay and try to realise it via this way..

(Update:profd“ from the forum told „us“ to use digi high or low + a logic level converter instead;->LINK)
These relays are cheap, around 2€ or so, u can buy it as 1,2,4,8 and so on..they are really easy to connect/addressable..


(remark: the 3 wires on the right are for the 10k poti (and then in future for the digi-poti of course))

u connect the GND and + from JP1 on the ES9038Q2M to COM (GND) and NO (+) and thats it..(i first connected it to the NC (normally closed) but that means, if u shut the Arduino down, then the circuit is (normally-)“closed“, means jumper set..

the relay itself is easy connected; GND from the Arduino to the GND and Power (5V+) from the Arduino to the VCC-pin (the jumper JD-VCC etc.. is another story, only remove and connect it to an external power source if u want to separate the Arduino-circuit completely from the relais circuit).
IN1,IN2 etc. is connected to a pin of your choice/assignment made in the sketch like this:
//relais
#define RELAY1 8
#define RELAY2 12
#define RELAY3 6
#define RELAY4 7
(i will post the modified sketch in the forum->LINK)
so, and now i can control/set the source via the BT (via our sketch), means for example „c“ for coaxial, „o“ for optical, „i“ for I2S and so on..

if (a==’c‘)
{
BT.println(„Source: coaxial“);
digitalWrite(RELAY2,HIGH); //R2 OFF
delay(50);
digitalWrite(RELAY1,LOW); //R1 ON
..
lcd.print(„Source: coaxial“);

}

i, u, can also use this now to set the different-filter-types, as for example JP3=set and JP4=set ->“slow minimum roll off filter“)..(will also maybe make a modified sketch for this future..)..
so, and really funny/cool 😉 is that these relays really make a „clack“-noise, everytime u adress it, for example i choose „c“=coaxial it makes „clack“ and it changes to coaxial..


really „Hi-Fi“ 😉

DIY: Migration sketch/build-up Arduino Mega2560 to Uno R3

so, 😉
hello, nothing new in particular..got today my „Geekcreit® UNO R3 ATmega328P“ for roundabout 3€ (i order there sometimes because of (in general) faster shipping times then Aliexpress)->
https://www.banggood.com/UNO-R3-ATmega328P-Development-Board-For-Arduino-No-Cable-p-964163.html

nothing special, except u have to use „Pin3“ instead of „Pin9“ on the Mega2560 for irsend..

ES9038Q2M: interesting new forum (audiodiyers.hu) + DACES9038PRO

so, 😉
came here by chance to a new very interesting ES9038Q2M-forum->
http://audiodiyers.hu/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=3615
some interesting pics/news on it, par example that the Green 1.06 has 7805 instead of 7808 on it and so on 😉 ->

by that, there is also a link to a 9038Pro-DAC (DACES9038PRO) designed by Andrea Ciuffoli/Quang Hao + a lot of interesting infos around the schematics of the sabre-chips->http://www.audiodesignguide.com/DACES9038PRO/

 

greets for now 😉
