Little Dot DAC_II - Page 2

Shizdan,

One thought as I was trying to replicate what you had done, windows allows you to control volume, or mute your spdif off hour asus card (this makes no sense - at least the volume part).  Perhaps this is why your dac is getting no signal.  Hope this helps.  (BTW I forgot to check the date of your posting so I hope this is not long since been resolved.)

44.1 - Works
48 - Works
96 - Works
192 - Fails to play test tones

I get "No Signal" from my Dac_II's LCD as well! I'm using it as follows

Essence STX (Toslink SPDIF)-> Dac_II -> HD600
 



The LD DAC doesn't support more then 24/96 audio through toslink, you need to use SPDIF through RCA or BNC to go higher.

Hello,

 

Resurrecting this thread as I'm looking for a budget DAC/Amp combo.

 

I'm curious which of the two is better performing: LD Dot DAC_II or the JDS O2+ODAC Combo. The price is the same (not including shipping).

 

Are there any other choices for a DAC/Amp combo? My primary us is via a PC to drive MrSpeakers Alpha Dog.

 

Thanks!

I can't compare to those directly, but I'm still using and loving my LD DAC_II in both headphone and speaker setups. Both sound smooth and transparent, my most important criteria.
