Serious Problems with Juli@ 64 bit drivers

Did TAS217 comment on the serious problems with the Juil@ 64 bit drivers?

1. Failure to wake up from sleep approximately 10% of the time. (Sound is muted.)

2. Blue screen of death if two applications attempt ASIO operation simultaneously.

3. Failure of driver power management to mute the output automatically during the power down process, resulting in noises out the analog outputs at the selected output gain, unless the user has manually selected the "mute" option on the juil@ control panel. (Even if manually muted there remains a moderate power up and down thump when the card actually changes power status, as with the 32 bit driver that I used on a WXP system, but this is less dangerous.)

Because of these serious faults I would not recommend this card for a 64 bit system. In addition, I would not recommend any products from this company because at least some of these problems have been widely known for over a year and there has been no attempt to fix them or even release a new 64 bit driver. Anyone who uses this card had better be damn careful with how far they crank the volume control on their preamplifier.
