I have spent more than a year working on the 24/192 solution for the Wavelength Audio product line. Basically this is a USB standards High Speed (480MHz) interface that utilizes the standard USB recognized Audio Class 2. Class 1 supports rates up to 24/96 and is supported by all operating systems. Class 2 is only supported by MAC OSX 10.6.4 and above.
Note: Unless you DAC says specifically that it supports 24/192, these drivers will not be required and will not boost your performance any higher than it says it is!
MAC OSX Setup Here
The only thing required for 24/192 setup is that you are using Snow Lepoard version 10.6.4 or above. If you are using this operating system then you are set and connecting and configuring your device the same as in the Macintosh setup is all that is required.
If you do not know which operating system you are on you can check by going to the Apple Icon in the upper left hand corner of the screen and selecting "About this Macintosh". It will pop up a window with your system information. If you are on earlier versions of the operating system, then you will have to download the upgrade before your device will work.
Windows Setup Here
Do not insert the device into a USB port yet!
It is best to use computers with Windows XP or newer when using any Asynchronous USB Device. Vista or Windows “7” would be a best choice for any USB DAC. Since Windows does not support USB Audio Class 2 protocol we had to get someone to write drivers that would enable this protocol.
The Thesycon USB Class 2 driver is available as two different files. We have a self extracting installer TheysconUSBDVR1.18.exe and the zipped up folder ThesyconUSBDVR1.18.zip. Depending on your protection software for Windows select the one that is appropriate and download this to your desktop. If you download the zip version, go ahead and extract the Thesycon folder to your desktop. The self extracting program will create a Theyscon temporary directory on your desktop and then try to run the Window Setup program located in the new folder. In the event that your protection software does not run the setup programe or you downloaded and expanded the zip version, go ahead and double click the setup.exe program in the Thesycon folder.
ZIP FILE HERE
SELF EXTRACTING FILE HERE
Running the setup.exe program will initate the installation of the Thesycon USB Class 2 Driver. If you are on Vista or 7 it is best to do this as the administrator.
This installation Wizard will run through the basic setup needed for your new 24/192 device.
Even though this driver is certified and there is a vendor certification file as seen by the folder directory above Windows will surely complain about the driver installation.
This driver, zip file and it's contents have been scanned by eset. You can go ahead and install this driver.
During the installation the Wizard will ask you to plug in the USB cable to your new 24/192 device. Plug in the device at that time and you will hear the familar tone that it is installing and then hit ok.
At this time the installation will match up the driver to the device and inform Windows and the associated control panels, ASIO and other items to be installed.
When finished go ahead and hit the Finish button as everything is installaed at this.
The Thesycon system includes a Control Panel for debugging and setting options. Nothing really needs to be addressed for that and you will not need it. The Thesycon suite also includes an ASIO driver so do not run your new device through any of the after market ASIO drivers like ASIO4ALL as it will cause a conflict in which nothing will work. There is also WASAPI and Kernel Mode inclusion in the driver installation as well as the standard Direct Sound interface.
You can now setup your device as you would for other applications from the Windows panel of this website.
