    Hi all,

    I am trying to configure PureAudio plugin in order to directly drive the S/PDIF output to my external DAC. Thus, I can have bit perfect audio streams.
    However, I get no audio at all...:(

    My DAC is a Musiland MD-10, which I connect to the PC using the digital output S/PDIF. The onboard sound card that roots the s/PDIF is an onboard realtek.
    Basic config settings:
    • I have ASIO4ALL 2.10 installed
    • I have Pureaudio 0.2.2.0 installed
    • ASIO4ALL selected in PureAudio plugin, whic points to realtek high definition audio, which is the digital optical output
    • Bass in the music player engine

    When i play in MP, I get the ASIO4ALL icon in the taskbar. If I right cick, I can see the right output is chosen. However, no sound at all...:(



    Any idea of what is going wrong? :confused:

    :D

    sorry, I think I climbed the wrong tree here.

    I knew my DAC was not ASIO compatible, but in another thread I read that if instead of using the USB connection I root the digital stream through the onboard sound card using SPDIF I could get away with it and use ASIO4ALL.

    However, I have tried that in Foobar and it is not working either... so no bitperfect joy for me in MP

    Othere options I guess are:
    • waiting for WASAPI support in MP
    • waiting for WINAMP to work as external player in MP. Thus i could use WASAPI there

    Is my undestanding right?

    Cheers
