Dear Headfellows,

 

pictures of the inside as well as some additional technical info now can be found on my website. Just click "technical details".

 

" wow... finally! "

 

Yes, this one really has taken a long time. Several parts had very long delivery time (still as a result of the Tsunami in Japan last year) and one part even no longer is available, requiring some major redesign. But I'm very pleased with the results!

 

:-)

Looks very promising Jan!

 

Naturally DACCORD (clever name!) deserves its own thread, here.

 

I pointed out a few differences in the technical details of DACCORD and STAGEDAC.

post #624 of 633

I have one question for StageDAC owners. When used with a laptop or a desktop (Mac), is it possible to have the volume control from the computer or once it's plugged in, the DAC takes over the entire volume business? 

 

I'm asking this because I have a slight hearing imbalance and I'd love to be able to control the output volume and tilt it to fit my hearing before the signal is fed to my amp. I hope this makes sense. I am able to do this with my little ODAC but not with any other "more expensive" DACs. Is there a software if the StageDAC is not capable of this? 

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Yes you can and you can also adjust the L/R balance on the MDAC.

Yes, you can change lr balance with stagedac, at least with coax and optical. Don't about USB.

I tried it with USB on my Mac and although it shows the bar, when I move it right to left no changes are being made. 

 

And I don't know how you can change to balance with coax and optical? On your computer? I don't have an optical out and am using MFace (USB to Coax converter) and with that it doesn't give me the option to balance left/right. So no luck so far.

That's too bad. I use straight optical and straight coax. It could be a sound card issue, but I can change lr balance if the above conditions are true.

Straight optical and coax out of what exactly?

I have two different sound cards that go to the Dac from two machines - one is just a stock mobo sound card, and the other is an old auzentech. I have custom lr balance on both.
