FWIW I had similar problems with my (2013 - among the first delivered I believe) PureDAC and Mac Mini USB. I went back to optical then later re-tried after reading carefully the information in the manual. I'm not sure exactly which suggestion solved the problem, but think a poor-quality USB cable was one part of it. May not be the same problem as yours but in my case there have been no problems since...

Fazors were introduced into the LCD3 partway through December '13. The Fazor has very prominent ridges, not to be confused with the normal cut-outs or holes in the non-fazor LCD grills
^ @Uniquexme in my most humble opinion - as you describe yourself to be a headphone newbie - you could take time to learn how different kinds of gear sound and learn about your own listening preferences. You can only do this through experience. If you jump straight into a 'high-end' system based on what "sounds better" to others, you are in danger of not appreciating it because you don't have a reference point in your own experience. You won't feel the satisfaction of...
^ You're right Cheers ps: I misspelled your handle - sorry about that!
