Replacement for PPA Studio USB card?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been happily running a Korus Win10 64bit music server (i3 3220 CPU @ 3.30GHz) for 5 years now but it appears that the dedicated PPA Studio USB card has gone faulty. As seen below, it connects to a spare PCI-E slot and enables USB connection to my RME ADI-2 DAC via one of two USB ports.

I've taken the PPA USB card out of my server and having fitted it to a second spare PC, that too is unable to detect the DAC when its attached. If I connect the DAC to one of the standard motherboard USB sockets (on the music server or the spare PC) both detect the DAC.

 

Before I go ahead and look at replacing it with a modern replacement (available here) does anybody have any other internally fitted recommendations? I'm not interested in SPDIF or Toslink, just USB to USB connection...

 

Many thanks in advance,
Pete
