Does this unit go to standby after a few minutes and will cut out sound for a second or two when it becomes active?
I don't know about this but the M8 , which is the model that this replsc, doesn't do that.
That would be good to know since for example the IFI iDSD DAC will go to standby after a short period of time and when music starts playing again you will miss a few seconds of sounds as the IFI iDSD DAC goes back to active state.
A lot of the time, this is due to how Windows manages USB power than your DAC device. Check this setting here: Start > Control Panel > Power Options > Edit Plan Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings. Under USB Settings, disable the USB selective suspend setting.
For some reason, Windows always defaults this setting to "enabled" even if your computer is set to "High Performance". It causes dropout issues with some DACs.
