DAC connection to PC with USB

Help ! I can't seem to get any sound to my new PS audio DAC111 through the usb connection on the computer. Call PS audio.... They said to go to audio output in the control bar, shut off desktop speakers and select usb output or usb kodac. I said great, that not hard. I can not find any of this in my windows xp control panel.
How do I get music to play from foosbar to my DAC111 through the usb. What settings, and where our they on my computer?? I would have never tryed to make this PC into a music server if I would have known you need a PC geek !!
Thank you for any help you can give to me. Brian
I'm no PC Geek, in fact, I'm not even a fan. I much prefer a Mac. In your Windows XP control panel you should have an Icon for "Sound, Speech and Audio Devices"...that's where your settings live. If you double click that you should be able to find your Audio settings. If the PS Audio device is plugged in and turned on, it should show up there. At least it would on a Mac :-P Good luck. It really should be pretty simple.
Are these .WAV files? My HeadRoom DAC won't play certain formats [ATRAC, MP3] that aren't the standard CD redbook [16/44.1] or DVD [24/96].
In the first place, connect the ULTRA LINK III to the pc. Turn it on... then boot up the PC.

XP 'should' see the new device and provide a driver for it.

PS Audio may and should be able to provide a driver especially for the Link III. At least they should be able to reccomend one that they know works well.

After the above...


Select "Sounds & Audio devices"

Select the AUDIO tab

In the drop down menus, select the PS Audio device for playback.

That should do it.

IF not you'll have to go into the Device manager find and then set the 'new' USB device as the default.

Mind that you continue to keep the Link III connected and powered up, when the PC is to be used with it. otherwise the PC may just revert to it's previous settings... or not. PC's are weird. I've two of them... one does what I tell it, the other does what it wants... sometimes.

Good luck.

Do let us know how or what you had to do to get things going... I'm interested in either the Link III, BC DAC III, and the Wavelength Brick for use with my main PC.
