I am using iTunes running lossless audio via USB to my Musical Fidelity V-DAC (I used a Musiland as well with same results). I get some unacceptable hissing is quiet passages or between songs (it's not from the recordings, it happens when song is paused too). I have all system volumes at 100% and reducing these has no effect. I have the output set to 48000 Hz, 16 bit (using Vista). I hear the hiss with heapdphones and thru my speakers. Sound quality is excellent but the hissing is a real detriment to the experience. I do not have toslink output from my soundcard (which is disabled BTW) so I cannot try that. Is this something inherent in USB maybe?

Does anyone have a fix?
