the normal analog out is gone too

 

but the headphone out of the d1 works perfectly

thetarget, I would e-mail Ryan about this. It seems more of a serious problem than just a faulty tube. I know in my D1, I ran it without the tube for a while and just used solid-state output and it worked fine.

Just got my D2 and I'm impressed all the way around. I will post more later when I've had a chance to test it more but initial impressions are quite pleasing.

Looks promising!

I'm really at a loss for words. I will write a full review with pictures but, I would almost swear this thing sounds better than my NFB-12. I know the opamps in the D2 are a bottleneck but the sound is more.... dynamic. The bass is stronger without being bloated and the cymbals of drum kits are more pronounced without being harsh. The NFB-12 seems to have overbearing mids. After several days, I'm really struggling to find 1 bad thing about the D2... It's easily Ryan's best product yet.

The D2 took him longest as well. I'll be getting a unit fairly soon I guess. waiting for news from Ryan

I just got my D1 in the mail the other day, and while the line-in and analog inputs both output sound, the USB, coax, and optical inputs do not work.  I suspect it's a DAC issue, any suggestions/fixes before I ship it back to china?

You can email Maverick Audio to ask what you should do =)

Derrrrrrrrrrp I had it on 220v instead of 110...

I would be happy to receive a test D2, would be a fun comparison to the BiFrost. 


My current system is a far cry from the D1, especially with all of the amps and dacs ive tried in my life from audigy 2 to the bifrost I own today.

 

I decided to dump the lyr and I bit the dust on a Decaware Taboo w/ vcap and headphone jack.

And it still works? eek.gif

Of course,  your under volting it.  Turn it the other way around 220v into 110v and kablooey xD

Oh yar I forgot that it is in the US.

 

If I were to plug a 110V device into my power socket, the device will kaboom immediately.

I've been lazy with my review. I wrote half of it and haven't had the time/will to finish it. I will though. I can say that I've had the D2 hooked up as my main DAC for almost a week now and I don't miss the NFB-12. I am curious to see how swapping the opamps in the D2 will affect the sound since I still have 3 LM4562's laying around.

post #645 of 725

I recently read this article, and am considering putting the original opamps back in.

 

I never actually tried the D1 with the stock opamps anyway.
