How do I connect to a PC with USB Audio?

Note: Before connecting your PC to the Network Player, ensure you install the required Cambridge Audio Windows 2.0 USB driver on your PC. Please find information on the most recent USB Audio driver here, and a link to download the latest driver here.

1. Connect your device to your PC.

  • After installing the correct driver, using a USB Audio cable (Type A to Type B), connect the USB Audio In on your device to a USB port on the PC.

2. Select the USB Audio source.

  • This can be done using the source selector on the front of the device, or by going to the Home tab and then selecting USB Audio within the Sources section of the StreamMagic app.

3. Navigate to the CA Control Panel which should now be installed in your Windows taskbar. This will show any connected Cambridge Audio USB Audio device and current sample rate.

4. On your PC, navigate to Settings > System > Sound. Select your Network Player as your output device from the drop-down menu.

5. Within this same window under Related Settings on the right-hand side, select Sound Control Panel. Alternatively, scroll down and select More Sound Settings.

6. On the Playback tab, ensure that the device is the default output device, then select Properties.

7. Within Speaker Properties, navigate to the Advanced tab. Select the desired bit depth and sample rate preference. (This step is optional.)

Note: Not all Windows versions support playback at sample rates greater than 384kHz. If you experience issues please set the default Windows playback format to 384kHz or lower, then restart your Network Player.

8. Your PC’s output will now playback via your Network Player.
