Because back when I used to drool over the idea of tube amps Decware was one of the companies on my radar.

Oh I see :) Well you can soon own a unit that one of their high end Zdac1's use as a DAC soon! :)

lol yeah, I kept spelling "hybrid" wrong.

 

Doesn't your browser have spell check?

Yeah it does but it doesn't work well with Head-Fi's own spell check program.

It is so.

 

Also, it won't catch things like ">2ohm" instead of "<2ohm" haha.

I'm still confused at how X and Y state works. Someone should translate that from bowei-speak to English. No offence but I still don't understand what happens in which state through what I/O.

Yeah, the O2's output impendence is less than 2 Ohms so that even if you have 12 ohm headphones, it will still run well with a good low end. 

 

The ZDAC1 isn't a tube amp from them but at least they used it haha.

One Switch on the front. Flip the Switch up and its State X, flip it down and its State Y

 

State Y: Default State. In this state, both the amp and the DAC are being used as one. So basically like a combo unit. You leave your headphone plugged into the headphone jack on the unit. What is happening inside is that all signals the unit is receiving from the computer is being sent from the DAC directly to the internal O2 amp and out headphone out. 

 

State X: Say you just got a new amplifier and or DAC to try out. Lets say just an amplifier in this case. You flip the switch up to change to state X. What happens now is that both units are not working together anymore. The DAC will take signals from USB or Coaxil but instead of sending them to the O2 through the control board, it will directly output the signal to its RCA fixed line out port. The O2 also will now ONLY take a input signal from the backs RCA port. It will no longer receive a signal from the DAC and will only receive an analog signal from the back's RCA and output through the units front headphone out. This allows you to use a separate DAC with the O2 and a separate amp with the CS4398.

Even though I'm not so much into the idea of tubes or high end audio anymore, this still blows my mind. Ծ_Ծ

Is that a pre amp? I don't see a headphone out.

And now put that into the 5th post in spoiler tags.

Already done that. I'll leave it out. It gives the post more girth and also explains what I mean by State Switch (a random name I got).

 

 

Makes sense now? I am only using amigious X and Y, what state will activate pushing the switch up and down will depend on Borisu but I think default should be down and seperate should be up. Because pushing a switch up generally means to activate.

Stupid.

Well, I have an exam in 13:30 hours, and I haven't really studied much for it (mainly because there's no material to practice with). Gonna be a tough one.

It's a non-latching push switch.

For the less technical minded : When you push it down, it does not stay down.

Still don't get it? : More like an elevator switch than a clicking ball-pen.

 

The indicator LED will show you the state.


The default state on first-time power up is Y

After that, it remembers the last state it was in.

 

It will also "loose its memory" if you disconnected the AC power since I'm writing into volatile memory.

Yep.

 

Not that I can help it.

I kept telling myself to do it for 2 days now.

What you call Y state is seperate units right? The LED light on means what? On means seperate or off means seperate. 

 

Can you give me some specs on the controller PCB like components, and etc?

 

 

I want to re read ichigo 100% one of these days.

I know that feel, bro.
Procrastination is a bitch.
