Anyone encountered problems concerning the drivers for this product? Have tried to get things started both with Windows XP and Windows 7 but there is some problems seemingly related to the drivers.

I guess it is always possible that the driver online is corrupt... please try to download the one linked below and rename it to TDPro.spt to replace the other one.

Please let me know if this driver works better?

Problem solved - defective USB cable.

Hi, and thanks for quick respond regarding driver-problems.

After installing the new driver (on two seperate machines with Windows 7 and Windows XP OS) - the DAC seems to be installed OK (the Device TwinDAC Professional Device is located under USB Devices) - and starting the CrazyT software, I now get USB ERROR - SYNCRONISATION ERROR when trying to play a file.

I get the error on both machines.

Is this related to the driver-problem or is this a completly new issue ?

Hi,

In a way yes, while trying to install the faulty driver the hardware gets confused. This can be solved to take the CrazyT from the mains (turn it OFF and then ON again). Sometimes you need to do this a few times or even disconnect the USB cable but nothing has to be re-installed.

Once it is working as it should then these problems are history (unless you have an extremely slow data-connection that is unable to feed the DAC with data fast enough).

Good Luck!

Hi Bert - thx for new link - that one worked better. We also found out that the USB cable was partially defect (brand new "high-end" cable...) causing sync failure between DAC and PC. After changing the cable there were no more problems and the system played beautifully!

We used a new Cary tube preamp with both RCA and balanced in/outs so it was very easy to AB-test various options like compressed files vs. full WAV/Windovs7 and W7 vs. WAV/CrazyT and later also WAV/CrazyT vs. regular CD-player. Even with a fresh not completely "burnt-in" CrazyT the improvements where drastic in terms of ease, "blackness" between the elements, noise floor, no dynamic compression etc. etc.

I am basically always happy, but the degree of hapiness swings from "suicidal" to "ecstatic"....:shame: within minutes!
