Sound clipping on sabre 24/96 DAC


I have this persistent problem with the sound clipping on my sabre usb DAC. It is connected from my PC usb slot (Win10) to the aux input of my amp. 

I need to run the sound level below 12 and with any peaks or bass it clips badly. I have tested with a different pc and different amp still the same problem

is there a different driver to try?

Or might it be a settings issue? any way to test it?

Any other tips?

Thanks, John

We have experienced that sometimes VLC can distort. Check the gain setting in the player program.

It could also be a problem with the DAC, when did you buy it? Contact us directly for support and arrange of a replacement if we determine that it's a hardware defect with the DAC.
