I am owner of Audinst Mini DAC and i was satisfied with it whole two years. Unfortunately i am facing an issue last couple of days. When i start my PC the DAC is not recognized properly. In Device Manager i can see "Unknown Device" and i can also hear weird cracking sound from my speakers. Unplugging and re-plugging the USB cable will magical fixes this issue until next system start (DAC is properly recognized and sound starts to play normally). Also i noticed that sometimes i can hear the cracking sound right after i start my PC (during POST) so i don't think it is a driver issue or anything related to OS.
What i tried:
- Re-flash the latest firmware
- Change the USB port
- Cleanup related drivers
- Hell i even tried to disconnect my system HDD and install a fresh OS on another one
Weird is that it is almost month after end of my 2year warranty (i bought it 26.1.2014) ... coincidence ?
Thank you in advance for your reply.
