Noob here, so hello to all. I've been reading this forum for ages and now I need some help from you learned folk!
I have a Win 7 pc (Realtek HD onboard sound with optical out) and a bunch of 24/96 vinyl rips.
Playback via 3.5mm jack is just fine, but I have bought a CYP AUD3 micro dac (24/192) and I just can't get any sound out of it.
Connected like this - optical/dac/rca/amplifier. I have spent 2/3 of the day clicking on everything I can, but still no sound.
Would greatly appreciate any guidance from you guys.

Best regards

The DAC is powered (external 5V DC) and input switch set to "Optical"?
Is the Realtek configured to send all digital in PCM format (if such a setting is available)?
When you look at the end of the optical cable going into the DAC do you see red light?
Do you have another digital source that you could use for testing/diagnosis?
Anything you can use to verify that the DAC power supply is working?

You'd probably get more constructive replies by adhering to TOS#6.

Thanks. Yes, the switch is set to optical.
No, I can't see a PCM option in Realtek settings.
Yes, bright red light at the end of the cable.
No other digital source to test with.
Yes, powersupply is working as the optical indicator lights up when connected.
I'm thinking it may be software, something in the output of Foobar?
Will edit topic, thanks for the advice.

Do you have a DVD player with optical audio out?

Have you tried another software player?

Found another source - tried my cd player optical out and that works, so the dac works.
I've tried VLC and WMP, same result - no sound via digital.

Also, can you tell me how to move this topic to the suggested section please?
