My ODAC has been sent on monday so I expect get it soon. 

 

I have 2 more questions:

 

1. Can anyone recommend me some short 3.5mm-3.5mm cable to connect my ODAC with O2?

I plan to set ODAC on top of my O2 amp so the cable should be just a few cm long.

 

2. There is not much in this thread about ODAC - O2 - HD600 config.

Does anyone has any experience with it? My currect setup is Xonar Essence ST - O2 - HD600. 

 

Thanks.

ODAC + O2

 

Got my ODAC today.

 

I noticed that after switching off the PC there is a quiet but hearable squeak noise comming from the DAC.

It stops after unplugging USB plug from ODAC. Is it normal?

i assume its still connected to the amp but not to the pc?

It is connected both to the amp and the pc. The AC/AC adapter and headphones are connected to the amp as well. 

It's just sitting there and waiting for me to use it :)

The squeak is gone once I unplug the USB cable.

It is completely normal. Happens to mine when connected to a desktop PC too. Not when using it with my laptop though.confused_face(1).gif

Good to hear that. I was afraid that my one is faulty or something.

Some pcs.....still have power on the usb port even when its shut down...i see this on several pcs...mostly homebrew diy types....I shut down the pc and still see lights on etc...unplug from the wall and the power goes off....design flaw.

most of those pcs or better motherboards have "wake up on usb", this can only work, if the port is powered :)

 

so not really a design flaw :P
 

post #1406 of 1960

the board is see this happening to are several yrs old.....also you can usually change the mode of operation in the bios.

So if I will find this "wake up on usb" option in my bios I have to set it to on or off?

post #1408 of 1960

Usually the wake up from usb allows a system that is NOT powered off, to come back to life from a suspended state like hibernate or S3 etc...

 

Depending on the bios implementation and motherboard it may or may not be there to turn off or on.

 

Check with the vendor of your pc, or motheboard OEM.

 

Depending on what you want would determine to accept the default action or to change etc..

 

What I specifically was talking to was with a PC , a desktop in particular that is a DIY system i put together a few yrs old that even when powered off I see lights still on the system.

These only go off if I unplug the desktop from the ac outlet.

 

Its nothing to do with the USB wake up 'feature'...in my case...the usb port has 5vdc there but no wake up.

 

Aint technology wonderful.....I always shut down my systems when i am not using them...dont want them online 24/7.

Question: Is it worth getting the Odac if I am only going to be listening to music through hi end speakers? I will be never be using headphones. Sound is going out from a PC realtek card right now, and it sounds fine to me.

How high end are we talking?


It's real hard to say, if you don't hear any problems with you PC.. it might not make a lick of difference, to be honest.
