    Nice!
    I'd call it a USB thong or USB bra (you know, to keep it in place), but both of those are actual things...

    Solved (Sorry If I flood this thread with FoS)

    Moved my headphone rigs away from my do-it-all PC. Same outlet,same strip, Rigs connect to Surface 3 as my Roon Endpoint. 2 days with zero droppouts. I think this improve the SQ too... I would like to elaborate but I think people might just see Im crazy lol.

    Even Roon faqs suggests moving your sound system away from PC or router if possible. Im dumb. Atleast my instinct tells me it wasnt Eitr's fault and no amount of buying replacement dacs going to solve this. Tweak things with what you have first, then consider buying new one.

    Asked this in the general advice thread a few days ago and didn't get any bites, so reposting here. Has anyone noticed their Eitr switching sample rates or bit depth during startup of a Windows 10 computer? Trying to figure out if mine is temporarily sending my DAC a signal it can't handle (something other than 16/24 bit or 44.1/48 khz), and if there's some way to address that other than physically unplugging Eitr during startup.

    If both windows and your playback sw are set to output 24/44.1 or 48, I can't think of why that would happen, especially if it worked fine with the same settings previously. Can't imagine how eitr could do that though, barring an actual fault.
