Yes we are including the Windows drivers in a small USB key so you can load them on your computer. (MAC already has the drivers installed)
Yes I was a bit surprised that JRiver and MMonkey worked out of the gate with ASIO and FOOBAR did not - will keep experimenting.
That is surprising. Sometimes one has to download Asio4ALL and use that as ASIO shell to work with Foobar if you want to see how that sounds.
My fave foobar sound-quality-wise has been 0.8.3, but it only works on Win XP not 7, so I presume you don't have XP setup.
BTW, I realize Bryston believes in solid engineering, but do try the Cardas Clear USB cable if you can. At $134/meter, it sounds incredibly "clear" and musical compared to oem usb cables and some of the high $$ USB cables..
BTW, for the USB converter, I like:BDG-1
