Can someone pmease help
I have bought this high spec pc for audio playback but am having problems playing certain files.
for anythign above 48kbs so anythign high def music wont play more than a few seconds and then silence which crashes the player. You then have to restart.
The PC is overkill
4GB Ram Coarsair
Win 8 Pro
Intel 520 SSD 60GB
HTPC Case, HTPC Power Supply.
Jriver and JPlay Media software
M2tech Hiface 2 Usb to Spdif - tried in all the different sockets
The systems is running a really barebone state for best soud quality but I have not heard hardly anything from it yet.
The exact same software with the same barebone setting is running fine on a Asus P67 mobo with i72600 that is my office PC so its go to be somehting with the hardware. I think the Motherboard and the H87 chipset is rubbish at the minute
Someone please advise or help me I am at my wits end.
I have the latest bios, chipset drivers installed, using the onbaord graphics whihc is termprimental at the best of times
Hello, did you solve your problem, because I can report the exact same problem, but on
AsRock MB H87m-ITX
4GB Coarsair ram
M2Tech Hiface Two (usb to spdif) - audio device for hifi audio playback from computer (tried in all the different sockets)
on: Linux Mint 16 x64, Win 7 enterprise, Win 7 ultimate x64, Win 8.1 x64
software for playback: Foobar2000 and JRiver Media center (under win os)
The system is running in a barebone state,also, only video and lan drivers.
Tried audio device on older hardware, Laptop Dell E6520, i5, 8GB under win 7 and Linux with the same playback software and everything works fine!
I updated bios to the latest version but with no improvements.
I also bought this hi spec. (for playing music) pc just for playing music and movies (HTPC) and now I regret, because I choose Intel chipset as reliable one.
Domashr, can you try the the following work around.
- Install latest graphics driver. Please choose the operating system you are using and install it https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Graphics&ProductLine=Lapto... Download Center
- Restart the system and access device manager and uninstall the audio driver.
- Install the audio driver provided by the manufacturer.
please let me know if this works
great it worked for my MB!
To share my testing and searching: I found, today, how intel was confirmed bug with USB 3.0 while CPU trying get out from C3 state, so then I disabled C3 state in bios and that helped me out, but with sylvia_intel work around now works while C3 state is enabled.
Maybe ellisdj would be interested, I think, sounds to me that with disabled C3 state hi res audio files sounds better, for my taste. It doesn't seems logically but... my wife also noticed!
Thank you sylvia_intel
