I have a Meze 99 Classic and an Ifi Air Dac
When I play music on Audirvana, only the application can play sound. Which is certainly good in terms of quality, but I’d like to have the sound of the rest + the sound of Audirvana, even if it means sacrificing a little quality.
When I’m in WASAPI, when I uncheck the padlock, the sound comes right back.
When I’m in ASIO, when I uncheck the padlock, the sound remains blocked on my PC, so I have to close the application Audirvana.
By the way: when my headset doesn’t receive sound for a few seconds, I hear a little sizzle, then as soon as the sound comes back, sizzle again. It’s as if as soon as the headset isn’t playing something, it goes into standby mode, and when it’s turned back on, it creates crackling noises. I should point out that none of these problems existed when I bought this DAC.
This is due to the exclusive mode of WASPAI that need to be enabled to get playback by Audirvāna. For the moment, we chose to not add the option to disable the option but it may be possible in the future in a update.
Are you using the latest version of the ASIO driver/firmware for your iFi device?
