M-Audio Audiophile USB Interior [for those interested] - Page 2

post #16 of 21
so, is there anything to tweak in there?

how easy would it be to implement a tru 75ohm bnc coax out? is it just replacing the RCA connector or are there some other things to consider?

there are some things you can do.. go do a search on the DIY forum.. there is a list of things that can be modded with the audiophile usb.

For those of you that use the M-Audio USB Audiophile I have a question.

Unless you have a light on your DAC like me with my Lavry DA10, how do you know that you are listening to a non-up-sampled signal?

I have to keep tweaking the one I just got today to keep it locked onto 44.1 kHz. When I log out and log back in it appears to wants to settle on 48 kHz. So if I did not have my lock light I would never know unless I tested this each time.

Just a thought.

This may be one reason to use the converters that utilize the PCM2704 chip instead of some others that provide a flexibility that can't be positively controlled as the USB Audiophile. That is if you don't have some positive method to ensure that you don't have a fractional upsampling going on.

can this thing power high impedance phones by itself?

I would say that everyone's mileage may vary as to how good this will power high impedance phones. The headphone out is there for monitoring the sound as it is being recorded. Most monitoring phones are high impedance or fairly high I thought. So it follows that it probably would power them but certainly not as well as a Singlepower amp. There are threads about modifying these so that they can better handle the amplifier loads. Do a search on this and check it out.
