Total Bithead problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

There's no sound coming through the right channel when I use my Total Bithead, is there anything I can do or is it time for a new amp? I'm not handy with repairing electronics... I should add that this is with both jacks. It's also been hissing quite a bit the past month or so, it used to be nearly silent.

Same problem via analog input and digital input?  At least with analog input, I have had my input cable go bad over time... due to flexing, pulling or whatnot.  I guess I'd also fiddle with the volume pot a bit ... to see if the pot has 'worn thin' at low levels.    If the channel comes back in as you turn the volume up... then probably it's the pot that's bad.

 

Have you checked that your headphones work normally when plugged into another source?

 

My BitHead has worked flawlessly for years now... so I'm hoping it isn't your amp.  I have had a number of cables go bad over the years.

Only tried with digital, channel doesn't come back regardless of volume, tried multiple headphones that work fine..

 

Tried different USB cables, tried different PCs, etc.

 

I'll probably be buying a Fiio E10 or E17 to replace it.

I've had the right channel (when using the USB DAC input) on my bithead go out a few times. I figured out that I can fix it if I switch over to the line-in, and then switch back.

 

Weird, but fixable.
