Ayre QB-9 DSD USB driver issue


Recommended Posts

I have just bought one Ayre QB-9 DSD as my new DAC and love this sound style!

I have tried Jriver MC 20 and foobar 1.26 and have faced same issue for playing DSD ISO file. As I play such over 96hz file, I have already installed the Thesycon driver 1.26version from Ayre link.

 

In foobar or Jriver output, i have chosen to output with "TUSBaudio ASIO diver", but there is no sound coming out.

 

if i choose foo_dsd_asio in foobar output, i could successfully play the DSD64 file through Dop mode and QB-9 will show 64. I could also use WASAPI output to play DSD64 frpm Jriver MC.

 

But I really want to use the Ayre official Thesycon driver to play DSD file, could someone help me?

 

Many thanks!

There is a wealth of set-up info on the Ayre website

 

I use WASAPI with JRMC 18, I think I was also using WASAPI before I switched away from foobar2000.

I also have a new QB9 DSD and use the same setup as Beetlemania. I get no sound unless I use the Ayer USB Wasapi interface. This interface doesn't even show up unless the Ayer is physically connected. So... no matter what I believe that the Thyson driver is being used just with an alternate interface.

I did get the Asio interface to work. There is a device setting for that interface and once that menu is displayed there is a tools area on the lower right hand side. Make sure that Dsd under Dop is checked. Also make sure that under the main Audio settings that Bitstreaming for DSD is checked and it should work..... at least mine does.

thanks for your feedback and seems like the official driver is not useful for DSD file play.

 

Have you tried foobar?

Please read my second post..... The Asio driver does work for DSD playback.

Yes, actually i have already read it. Thanks.

But my question is about output in foobar. In foobar:

1.could you use wasapi output to play DSD?

2.could you use TUSBaudio ouput in foobar for DSD play?

3. any suggestion to adjust the official driver setup?

I own the old Ayre qb-9 DAC (96/24, not dsd). I am looking for the Windows driver for it, since the one in Ayre's website is of no use to my dac.

 

Any help is very welcome!
