Did you try turning the knob on the SupremeFX HiFi? I had to turn the crap out of it a ton of rotations for the volume to turn up.
I did rotate the knob about 20 complete turns but heard no increase in volume. In my Windows>Playback settings, the little volume meter was hitting the top when I had music playing (still nothing into the headphones).

in WIndows, there is sound settings, did you put the highest level for the output of your headphones?
Did you also set in Windows's sounds settings that your Headphone is the Default device?
I am also having these issues. I have gotten it to work only 2 times and each time i get distortion at bitrates 192hz and above. Seems to have driver related issues.
What I did to get it working:
1. Removed SupremeFX software from PC (do not reboot yet).
2. I went into Device Manager (clicked show hidden) and removed every single thing related to SupremeFX. *Note I kept the realtek stuff installed.
3. Shutdown the PC, unplugged the PCIe cable from the DAC.
4. Started PC, opened CCleaner and cleaned registry.
5. Shutdown the PC, replugged in the PCIe cable into the DAC.
6. Started PC, Installed SupremeFX package and restarted pc.
This happened to work, your mileage may vary. I tried every easier solution, like not unplugging pcie, just reinstalled drivers, etc.. It never worked.
The issue I believe is indeed the drivers. When I change headphone jack from 6.3 to 3.5 I hear a click (which I'm guessing is the hardware switching inputs) when it is working. I didn't hear this switch at all when the headphones didn't work. The volume knob also didn't work at all. Once I could manipulate the volume knob and it showed up in the SupremeFX software the audio would work again.
Overall I am displeased with the drivers and DAC as a whole. I hope they get the issues sorted out.
Side Issue: The mic in on the DAC is EXTREMELY low volume when working.

Thank you sir. I followed this to get my RVe10 DAC/Amp working on my RIVE. Perfect.**
Do you have problems with the mic of DAC supreme fx? I have problem with any apps (teamspeak,skype etc) with the sound they listening me very bad and low noise. All problems stoped as soon as connect the jack to the rear panel of board...The sound of headphones is very good!
