Yeah that would be great if they gave us the way to loosen up the timing. Even my home built Asus computer has issues with USB to this DAC.As an example.I use Audiolab 6000a on es9018 with LG TV optics.There are sometimes rare sound drops!!!I go to the menu and set the DPLL as "wide" and the dropouts instantly stopped! This is a very useful feature and it's bad that the Topping engineers DID NOT INCLUDE it in the new firmware.Moreover, some D90SE users have such a problem just with the LG TV and P4 raspberry in this forum if you read there are complaints!On another read there is a problem with the output of Xingcore AF200 by IIS.
This is not a dac problem.And the problem is ES chip.Therefore, most well-known manufacturers are aware of this and embed the function of changing the DPPL of the jeter.Topping engineers can also show their professionalism !It's inexpensive to embed into a new firmware and end the argument!Why buy a top of the line dac and use low end sources?
It's software-based and it is inexpensive.But it adds respect from users.Why are you against it, that's unclear!If you choose not to make the dac with multiple options that's their choice. It's a firmware overhead that most people don't want to pay for
I'll clear that up for you then. I don't need it, don't want to pay for it. My purchasing doesn't exist to subsidise your poor source choices
It is an old interoperability principle to receive liberally and send conservatively. At least this is more convenient in the short term. In the long term it allows bad implementations to grow.
Why do tiu rhink its always tv'a that don't work with many dacs....?
well I DID contact topping support about the issues I had with dropouts over optical from my LG CX OLED. They couldn't fix it and said the dac was not defective. <shrug>I use a laptop, TV, and a bluesound node 2i and I have never had any problems with the dac. If you're having problems maybe you got a bad unit.
I've never owned a Samsung or LG TV and never will. My cheap Vizios and TLC TVs work great with my D90se. It's kind of weird that the more expensive TVs don't work with this dac.Quick show of hands. How many people own a Samsung TV? - 75%? Wow... It would appear that Topping is indeed under a (an assumed) obligation to produce a product that works flawlwssly with electronics most likely to be used with their devices. An obligation to adhere to their own good reputation as well as present and future profit expectations... Topping can of course do whatever they want. They can sink their own ship if they so desire. But if they plan on remaining a strong market force they are absolutely intrinsically obligated to pay attention. I don't think that a few extra keystrokes in developing a proper firmware is asking too much. (And it truely is a few keystrokes to enable timings which have already been tested and successfully implemented in multiple devices. It will work here easily).
