Its a D/A Converter.
I really don't mind the relay opening/closing while reading the initial info, but it does it between tracks also, and it continuously openes/closes when paused, until I press play/stop, so if I want pause to stop listening for a few minutes to do something the relay is going crazy the entire time. It is quite loud and very annoying.
my wadia clicks when changing tracks, and its usb, doesn't bother me at all, now it doesn't click on mute, but anytime signal changes, it clicks
i've had the dacit too, it is very good, but i had a problem with it having drop outs when listening through jriver at anything over 16/44
and i never had that with the bifrost
Thats whats killing me…when its on mute/pause.
I figured the measurements in the description (on Amazon) where 100% wrong after seeing the photos and the weight of the unit.
Since I only listen to 16/44, satellite radio (via the PT) and vinyl, I don't have to adjust to the clicking noise. Do all DACs do this with lower and higher bit rates?
I'm old and old fashioned. I just listen to music. I don't generally use music as accompaniment to what I'm otherwise engaged in so I don't like being reminded of what my equipment is doing. It's there to serve the music and me. Silently.
@ Joseph: My DacIT is 6.5" square and 2.5" tall.
Tank you for the dimensions.
