Huge thanks and a quick bit of clarity requiredI've been reading this thread over the past few days and have a D4 winging across the waves as we speak :-) Thanks to you all for so much great info - much appreciated
I am still slightly confused with the variation between amp, amp/dac and dac usage. (Please bear with me!).
>> Amp only - LOD in from from my iPod with battery
>> Amp and dac - usb in from my MacPro
>> Dac only - usb in and lineout to amp downstream
Now what has my grey matter smoking is Headphone addicts words:
"And, it can be used as a line out DAC with just the USB and no battery installed, as well as an amp via USB with no battery".
It's the last bit, "amp via USB with no battery". How do you accomplish this?
Any help of clarity will be warmly received!
