hey can anyone confirm something for me. when you plug in a optical cable to the ibasso db2, is it supposed to light up red? i plugged my sys-concepts custom cable in and get nothing no light or anything. am i doing something wrong? or am i only supposed to get the optical light from the dap?
but for reference if you are using a iriver ihp-120-140 go to settings>controls>optical out>yes/no?>yes and your optical output is now on.
pardon me, i have just gone from a ipod touch to the iriver which imo the iriver ihp-140 is much more control based vs the ipod where ipod is just plug and play really not alot of controls
on another note, i got most of my setup in, pb2>db2>sys-concepts custom optical cable>ibasso balanced cable>iriver ihp-140>westone w4r
i feel its pretty impressive although i am currently only using the stock cable vs my toxic silver poison per the toxic cable being terminated in rsa balanced. so i am going to have a ibasso balanced to rsa female cable made so i can use it with this setup.
however even with the stock cable, it sounds very good on first listen, its warm per the stock cable, i think once i get my toxic cable in the mix it will brighten up the sound a bit
