Do not buy an Astell & Kern 120. It claims 192Gb memory, but it indexes and uses only the internal memory - 64gb. The external SD cards carry files but do not show up on the device. Money spent...

Haute Schiit! Bifrost is world's most affordable fully upgradable DAC - Page 18

Curious problem. I usually use my Bifrost only with my PC, but I hooked up a cd player in addition last night. The PC is using optical, the CD using coaxial. When I have the CD connected with coaxial and the PC is connected, I get CD sound from both inputs when I press the selector switch on the front. Am I not supposed to be able to switch between sources?

Sorry if you already covered this, but did you try a different optical cable? I had similar issue with my DAC-2 but luckily figured out before sending it in that my optical cable was bad. It was a cheapy cable and apparently after some use the connector came loose from the cable. At first I couldn't tell that the cable was bad but then the connector completely came off of the cable and I was like . The cable was probably bad for a while then just got decapitated.
Hm.. upon further tinkering I seem to have lost the optical port entirely. With only the optical port in use I get no sound from either setting on the front panel. If I connect my computer with coaxial I get sound from both settings on the front panel. Guess I'll message Jason in a bit. I have a feeling this is software related or whatever the device uses to switch inputs. I should NOT be getting sound from both settings from 1 input afaik.
