I need some advice. I just received my Schiit Lyr amp as well as my HiFiMAN HE-500. Such a nice combo package.
Anyhow I'm having some issues with alot of static noise coming out of my headphones. I haven't used the HiFiMAN HE-500 yet, but just testing with my Grado SR325is.
This is how I've got my music station set up.
Macbook Pro --- Optical Out --- Maverick Audio DAC TubeMagic D1 --- Output via RCA to Schiit Lyr --- > Grado SR 325is.
RCA cable is a Chord Cobra 3 Stereo Audio Cable. I've got the volume on the Maverick Audio set to about half way.
From the start I'm hearing crackling, hiss, static at the lowest volume knob setting. It's freaking me out? Sounds so bad.
Have I done something wrong with the setup or did I get a dud unit? Previousily I've been using my Maverick Audio DAC TubeMagic D1 as an all in one DAC and headmp and it works nicely.
Thank you Guys in advance.
