    Hello,

    I can’t get the ASIO Driver (and the WASAPI push/event also) working.
    My System Setup:
    Windows 10 64bit
    foobar 2000 1.3.15
    Element EA101EQ-G Firmware 2.1.5/v1.0.19
    ELAC Driver 2016-12-21
    ASIOProxyInstall-0.9.4
    Connectect via USB

    With foobar output ASIO: foo_dsd_asio and ASIO Driver for ELAC/CMedia 64bit and Bitrates higher than 16bit/48kHz I’ll get an error message, that this Rate isn’t supported by that device.
    Same with WASAPI push or event. DS (Direct Sound) in foobar works fine up to 24bit/192kHz.
    Beside that, is there a chance to check incomming rate at the Element Amp?
    Thanks for any help!

    Hello Andi,

    Just want to touch base with you, so you don’t feel ignored. I will have to do some testing and research.

    Thanks,

    Hello Andibo,

    Do you have the Element amp functioning using the standard drivers?

    It seems like Foobar doesn’t recommend the Asio drivers, unless absolutely needed.

    I can continue to try to solve this problem if wanted.

    Hello Charles,

    with standard drivers the Element Amp seems to work correctly, but in Windows options for sound output I can’t define the supported formats for this device. I’ve got another USB DAC, where I can choose the supported formats by checking the check boxes from 16bit/44.1kHz to 32bit/192kHz. This other USB DAC works fine with ASIO drivers in foobar with the same configuration. I’d like to use the ASIO driver for bitperfect playback.
    The WASAPI drivers don’t work either in foobar.

    Please continue to check on this problem.

    Thank you,
    Andi

    Hello Andi,

    I think I got the ASIO Driver to Function with Foobar and output to the Element Amplifier. I did find something weird when I played higher than 16/44.1, but I just raised the ASIO Buffer Size to max and it works fine.

    Thanks,

    Hello Charles,

    Thank you again for your efforts.
    I tried every possible possibility with all different drivers and configurations. Unfortunately Foobar will not play any File through USB higher than 16/48.
    Can you please tell me, how you configured your audio chain from Windows drivers to foobar add ons and the config.
    It would be great if you can provide some screenshots (via E-Mail).

    Thank you,
    Andreas

    Hello Andreas,

    Steps were:

    1) Downloaded and installed the ASIO drivers. http://www.asio4all.com/

    2) Downloaded and installed the latest stable version of Foobar v1.3.15. http://www.foobar2000.org/download

    3) Download and installed this Foobar ASIO component http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_out_asio

    4) Download and installed this WASAPI component. http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_out_wasapi

    Within the Foobar Software
    1) In Preference I made sure the ASIO4ALL V2 the output device.
    2) In the ASIO sub item in Output, I checked that in ASIO4ALL v2.13 had the WDM Device List had ELAC USB2.0 High Speed True HD Audio was selected. Also I made sure the ASIO Buffer Size = 2048 Samples(this affected the playback of Hi-Res files).

    If you need Screenshots Email me @ CMallari@elac.com and I’ll send them.

    Thanks,
    Charles

    Hello Charles,

    after hours of testing and trying I think it’s a problem with Windows itself.
    I tried different USB Ports and driver configurations.
    For one single time I got the ASIO driver working in Foobar – then again error messages.
    Thank you for your support. I’ll keep trying and testing.

    Thanks,
    Andreas
