I suspect it’s an USB2 issue. From hearsay, USB1 devices seem to always work. My Qudelix5K (which is USB3.something) works. Other USB3.something DACs don’t, though. USB1 seems to be the safest choice for DACs on M1 Mac.I've been following this thread as I've been pulling my hair out with my new SMSL c200 DAC with 2021 MBP M1 Pro and the stutters.
I've plugged in my older Audioengine D1 and I'm not getting any stutters at all? Could this be a USB1 vs USB2 thing?
Anyone think of a reason why this would work?
