post #30016 of 39159

Thanks :)

 

I will take some pics next week. First I'm at the Prince Concert in Antwerp, then I'll take some pics later on.

 

A question - I hooked the WA6 to my external sound card (Nuforce DAC) - how loud should the DAC be? And is it okay to use the headphone out of the nuforce for the WA6?

(is there actually any difference between the headphone out and the chinch outputs on the back?)

Please connect the WA6 to the RCA out's at the back of the dac. Connecting the HP out of a DAC to another HP amp is absolutely the last possible option to be used (if you really cannot afford a dac with a fixed line out) & strictly a no-no...

Dac turned all the way up.

Control volume one amp.

At-least that's how I've always done it

turn it up before distortions begin, lower it so no more distortion and keep it there.

Good to know and thank you!
The Nuforce does have both, but the RCA were already in use for my Audioengine A5s.

I think I will change that now after I get back home. Is there any good quality switch for RCA? A few weeks ago I bought the HD800 and now the WA6,so my wallet has seen some better days... wink.gif

I hear ya'. Get rid of girlfriend. Stop driving car. Ramen and tea. Check! It's gonna take more than six months for a WA5 and some Audeze's. The numbers don't lie.

Since one typically eats less in hot weather I'll get off to a fast start... :normal_smile : already have re-cabled HE-6 cans, so one down and one to go!

If anyone is interested, I just put my WA6 (without the wood) with a few extras + free shipping and PP fees to the lower 48 only. Thanks.

I use the Audioquest Hard RCA splitter out of my DAC.  No SQ degradation that I can hear but I run either the amp or my desktop speaker.
