I have a brand new DAC that actually allows me to do s/pdif in in windows. But also allows me to put out 192KHz in Windows.
The DAC works fine in Windows. In Ubuntu it shows up in sound settings, but if I select it, the only thing I hear through it is distortion. Related to the sound, but pure distortion. (No matter what sample rate. I'm using a Lenovo T510 btw).
I use audacity to record and play stuff (live). And I'd really like to stay in the Linux world doing this. But I can't hear my dac.
On my stereo by the way, I have a REGA DAC and can play through USB to that with no difficulty (although the sample rate remains at 44.1 no matter what I play).
I think I am missing something kind of fundamental here. If you have any suggestions. I would be much obliged.
