Am I correct that Pavel got back to you and got you the driver? JCR
Yes, got the driver thanks. Still having some issues with timing errors in Audiolense, Mitch is helping me work through it.

Please provide an update when your issue is resolved. What the issue was and how was fixed.

Cheers

Found a partial work around, but does not work consistently.
If I change the channel mapping (left and right bass/mid/tweeter) back and forth it works, get correct timing. Really weird.

At this stage I think its my windows pc. Going to try a windows laptop I have.

I have the opportunity to get a dac8 and want to use Audioense - did you resolve the timing errors?

If it was, what was the solution?
different hardware, or from Mitch/ Pavel/ juicehifi

If not might it be due to complex filters requiring too much for the PC's processing?

Using a UMIC-2 microphone, I’ve had great results with Audiolense XO for my dac8pro. I certainly recommend that DAC for multichannel listening. I hear they are hard to come by, so if you have the opportunity to get one, I would seriously consider it.

With multichannel convolution running through Roon and HQPlayer, my server runs out of steam at multichannel DSD64. If I use a less complex HQPlayer setting, then for Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 lossless, I can take full advantage of the dac8pro and scale to multichannel DSD128 through the Okto. This is obviously very hardware dependent. JCR
