[Macbook]
Macbook does not need to install the driver. Directly choose the NEW K3 as the output device. It is recommended to set the system output volume on the computer to the max level and then adjust the output volume of the NEW K3 with its volume knob.

[Notes]
1. When the NEW K3 is connected to a Macbook in the USB AUDIO 2.0 mode, it can play DSD tracks up to DSD128. This is because under OSX, DoP can only support up to DSD128 (In Macbooks, DSD256 needs to be processed with 768k, while the NEW K3 supports up to only 384kHz.)
2. In theory, OSX can be connected to the NEW K3 to play Native DSD256, but it needs a MFi-certified playback software that supports Native output.

[Linux computer]
The Linux system runs drive-free. Theoretically, it can be used directly once connected. However, due to the large number of versions, it cannot be guaranteed that all systems can be adapted. If it cannot be identified once connected, it is recommended to try other data cables or USB ports.
