He Hammer,

 

i asked them the same question and have an answer already:

 

"Yes, we are proceeding to DSD256 update at right moment. The VEGA unit with SW Version 2.0 can download the latest driver to enable this function right now. For the unit with previous software version, a firmware update is required and can be done in AURALiC factory or nearest service center. The update will be free and a small amount of shipping cost may be applied to the procedure.

We are currently working on the detail of update procedure at right moment and will have the detail by middle of June.

maybe that is helpfull for you

Thanks for the information. If possible, would you mind sharing the details when you hear? I've still not heard from them and most likely, others are in the same boat! Hammer.

I've exchanged a few emails with Auralic. It sounds like they are still working on it, and will contact us once the update is ready (or logistics for the update).

I'm sending mine out shortly.

 

Any J. River users, with upgraded or V2 Vega, please start testing JRMC21 4xDSD over DoP as it was just implemented.

 

Kudos to Matt and team for adding this right after I solely petitioned for it!

Has anyone in the US had their Vega upgraded to DSD256? I registered for the upgrade, but haven't heard from Auralic since.

Yes, interesting they are still advertising the upgrade so there is still hope! (I hope).

They have completed the first upgrade round of 80 units in the US. They are putting the infrastructure in place to handle the rest without sending them off shore. Don't count on a free upgrade. There is not yet a definite date for this to happen.

 

Delays are at least due in part to the changeover of the North American distributor and the establishment of onshore servicing capabilities, which are in place now but not fully developed.

 

This information is direct from Auralic in China and the US via email and telephone conversations.

I've got mine back from Auralic, but out of the box it won't do DSD256 DoP with J. River like my iFi micro-iDSD. Strange...

Thought there was mention here somewhere about needing the very latest JR to work with this upgrade.

I always have latest Stable release of JRMC installed. Currently, 21.037.

Rebooted. Reinstalled newest driver. No luck. Very perplexing. It should do DSD256 with DoP no?

This was the response I received to an enquiry to the Auralic distributor in Melbourne, Australia:

 

Thanks for the email,

 

 

The upgrade itself isn't quite available at this stage, but from the supplier it will need to be sent to China for the upgrade to be performed.

 

 

At this stage they haven't informed us we can start sending them back, but I would expect the process to take a couple of months if you were wanting to do so at this stage.

 

 

We unfortunately won't be able to perform the upgrade ourselves here like originally planned.

 

 

Check in again in a few months :)

 

I am at a loss to understand why the unit must be returned to China to perform a firmware upgrade and why even that process cannot be started for a "few months".

I still can't get mine working after 3 months. Has the DSD256 update and JRMC plays 4XPCM2DSD native over USB to my iFi iDSD, but the Vega errors out.
