Just changed from my trusty 5000A to a 6300 but I cannot get audio to my PC (win10 64).

Hi Roger,

You need to press the "Remote" button up in the upper right to get PC audio.

Threw me too when I first got my 6300.

DAX is not needed just to get audio from radio to PC for "listening" purposes.  If you want to feed audio to another program then that is what DAX is for.

Also, what always catches me is that after installation of SmartSDR, the default playback and recording devices for the PC have been set to DAX items, rather than the PC's speakers and microphone.  You can correct this by right clicking on the speaker icon in the lower right of the screen and selecting either Playback or Recording Devices.  Make sure you set the PC's speakers and microphone as the 'Default' device.
