USB DAC — FAQ

My

23425

DAC is plugged into my PC but I get no audio or I get sound out of my laptop speakers. What gives?

It is possible that the DAC is not the default sound playback device, and thus audio is still coming out of the normal PC sound card or laptop speakers. (The

DAC’s green light shows that the host PC is aware of the DAC as an audio device, and is operating correctly).

To prevent this from happening, please connect your DAC / plug in your rWave before starting your audio application (e.g. iTunes, Windows Media Player etc).

The procedure to change the default sound playback device varies by operating system. As the device is plugged in or unplugged, the operating system may or

may not automatically select the Arcam DAC as the default device.

Windows XP:

Via the Control Panel, open Sounds and Audio Devices.

The third tab, Audio, shows a drop-down box to select the

default sound playback device. Select the Arcam device.

Windows Vista / 7:

Via the Control Panel, select the Sound item. The Playback

tab shows a list of playback devices. Select the Arcam device.

Mac OS X:

Via the Apple in the top-left corner of the screen,

select System Preferences. Under the Hardware

section, select Sound. Select the ‘Output’ tab. From

the list of devices in the Output tab, select the Arcam

device.

Linux distributions:

The two most popular window systems,

GNOME and KDE provide system

configuration utilities to select the playback

device. As this varies by distribution,

by version and by users’ specific

configurations, we cannot provide detailed

instructions here. However, all linux

systems that we tested in 2012 somewhere

facilitated changing the playback device.

Select the Arcam device.

Note: D33 users should select class II

input for Linux. rPAC (class I only) is not

compatible with the current Linux kernel.
