Installation (Windows 10 Drivers)
This unit is going to be used for work, so did not try and connect this to a SnakeoilOS machine (May do this in the future if the need arises to troubleshoot any DSD issues). This is my first personal XMOS device, and so I fall back to the included Driver CD. That probably was a mistake as I get this cryptic error:
NSIS: Error launching installer.
And working as a Windows developer, NSIS is something I have used extensively in the past. This is the first time I’m seeing this error. A quick google tells me I need to either:
- rename the installer, or
- move the installer to another folder.
I chose option #2, and sure enough, the installer now starts:
I suspect the NSIS installer do not work if it’s executed from a folder containing UTF8 characters. Seriously why can’t Microsoft get this right?! Or is this a problem with nullsoft (The maker of NSIS)?
With the software installed, I plugged in the DAC, powered it on, my computer makes the “USB detected” notification sound- and nothing happened.
Checked the device manager, and I don’t see any new USB device. After spending some time hunting around, found this folder, and turns out I need to run a second installer (in the DriverPackages folder) to install the XMOS USB driver.
Now that’s better! Something popped up in Device Manager now, and I get this new thingy in the system tray.

hey, u still have this thing?
i think what happen is that the opamp chip needs change. Consider LME49720 if u dont fancy to do any soldering, or just buy the Burson V5i if u have budget, easier.
I crossed this text when i roll the opamp, and i think my opa1612 is bad, and got this text.

Yeah still have it. Using it mainly for work. Am considering a Burson V5i, will eventually buy one (waiting for a sitewide e-bay discount to pull the trigger).

BTW, the drivers from the CD no longer works on recent versions of Windows 10. Please go here (https://www.xduoo.net/forums/topic/xduoo-xd-05-plus-driver-4-6-7/) for instructions on how to install the new driver.
*NOTE* : This is xDuoo xd-05 POKE. (Not plus). So when upgrading the firmware, make sure you choose the right bin file.
