I was going to keep the Yulong D18 but one DAC is enough for me. Hopefully someone will buy it and give it a new home.

Hello fellow Head-Fiers!

 

Until now I have never tried out the XLR outputs of the D18, but I would like to do that by using a pair of XLR to RCA adapters. As I've come across the Cardas adapters, I would like to ask if there's anybody here who has experience with them or adapters in general? Can I just plug them in and enjoy the sound or is there anything I have to take care of first?

 

Thanks for any help!

I use adapters that I ordered from Korea through ebay. They are just plug and play. My tube amp is single ended so going fully balanced isn't possible at the moment. These adapters were a simple solution and very cheap. I can imagine what Cardes charges. I really don't think you need to spend  a lot on the adapters. I believe you can even get what you need to try this at Radio Shack.

You're right, Cardas charges quite some money. They offer 2 varietes, and the "low-grade" ones are still expensive. The other ones that I can get are Neutrik and are a lot cheaper. What I could do is to order both and keep the ones I like more (in case there's a difference) biggrin.gif

I use monoprice XLR to RCA cables, they're quite affordable and the cable is actually quite flexible and well built.

Got the D18 to pair with my A18.

Combo sounds very detailed and soundstage is huge on my HD800.

Big improvement over the V-DacII I had before.

Now searching for  XLR interlinks, and some decent powercables.

Just one remark:The powerled of the amp is brighter than that of the dac.

I had a faulty powerbutton on my new D 18 ,and Yulong did send me 2 new Onpow powerbuttons,because I didn't want to send the unit back to China for just a faulty powerled

Changed the button,and just noticed it was not as bright as the A18.Maybe I am a bit of a nag,but I find it a bit annoying.

Does anyone here can confirm,there combo has the same "issue"

Here is a photo:

My pair is the same way.  (In regards to the brightness of the power buttons)
