How to activate PCM/no sound when plugging in a DAC converter

2015-01-18, 14:29 PM



I recently bought a couple of Audioengine A5+ speakers for my Lenovo G505s laptop, and now I wanted to add a DAC converter to this setup. I connect the DAC to my laptop via a 3.5mm/optical cable, and then an RCA cable from the DAC to my speakers' inputs. However, I get no sound.


Now, with my DAC (a FiiO D3, by the way) came a small note saying "Please set the digital output of the audio source to PCM, otherwise there will be noise or no sound". I think this is my problem, but no matter how I look in the settings of my computer, I cannot find anywhere to choose this setting. Could someone please guide me here?
