post #2806 of 2810
Occasionally I would like to send music to my 10ES2 through the latest version airport express (optical) but the signal cuts out due to jitter. I've talked to Kingwa about this and he even sent me a module to try and remedy it but it didn't change. Has anyone figured this out?
I am also wondering if anyone has had this issue with the 10.33 (WM8741 chip).

Thanks!

One thing that might help is a cheap toslink-coax converter. I run an optical through my TV to my AGD DAC and it would cut out (don't know why). I had a Monoprice converter not being used so I tried that, seems to work now without cutting out.

Also, I have discovered that not all optical cables work as well as others, some seem to hold signal better (for lack of a better term).

I tried an optical to coax coverter, and a few different optical cables, but still no change. I am going to try a 1st generation airport express - see if that changes anything.
Two other issue I'm having with my 10ES2 are:
- Significant cracking/popping (connected w/ USB to a MacBook Pro w/ OS10.9.1) from what I believe is the DAC.
- And my computer often has trouble seeing the 10ES2 - I have to unplug/replug cables and power off/on a number of times.

Very frustrating

Would a budget preamp only unit (unbalanced with high output  = 10V) be a good idea?
