Connect PC and SA30 through digital coaxial, following audio harware is tried:
Xonar Essence STX II
Perform the following steps:
switch on Arcam SA30 build 634, v1.27 is used
start Arcam Music Life 2.2.4 (734) app on Android
Choose optical or caxial input (output device is a windows desktop pc) and playback any video file (Netfix, Youtube in Chrome or Firefox, local video files with different players, DVDs, etc.) and different output drivers (ASIO, Windows Standard devices and WASAPI).
Audio is always delayed, async form video. If higher Hz rates are choosen the effect is more noticeable (from 44.100 Hz to 192.000 Hz).
Only if using analog input without any processing (direct mode) the delay/async problem disappears.
Seamless playback of videos without delay
Issue was reported to ARCAM and they will contact me. Will keep you up to date with answers
I have an Android Smartphone. Currently this App is not usable with Android 10.
No currently I am using digital coaxial not optical as my connection. I have done all my testing optically with onboard soundcard and my Asus Xonar Essence STX II and with coaxial on the Xonar soundcard.
Windows Version is 1909
Playback as stated with various playback methods and players (VLC, Pot-Player, MPC-HP, Youtube over Firefox and Chrome, etc.)
It really does not matter. If I use digital in on the ARCAM I get the delay. Should be easily reproducible, unless my digital board is broken and I doubt that.
Just for trouble shooting purposes. Is is possible to connect your PC to SA30 analogue input, e.g. CD and use analog direct. @AleisterCrumpet reported in ARC: audio and video are not in sync, ref#52 - #4 by AleisterCrumpet there is no delay if he used analogue input icw analog direct. I was wondering if the same delay was occurring once you used this setup. If you cannot connect it through the analogue input, that is no problem. I’ll create the ticket without this information.
