Sorry did not mean to educate you on using a screwdriver....call JDS Labs and talk to John if you cant get it open.

He may be able to suggest something to help...

oh btw, did you try opening the back panel screws? if the front panel wont open, perhaps try removing the volume knob (1/16" allan wrench unless im very much mistaken) and sliding the board out from the back?

Do you guys really recommend taking the batteries out? Nothing's gonna happen if I leave 'em in right?

If you're only going to always run it on AC, I'd take the batteries out.  If you don't want to take them out, I'd run the batteries down like once a week

Is it possible to add a optical input to my O2+ODAC combo in a b3-080 case?

Not without adding in additional electronics, like an optical input DAC.  Or you could always add the input to the case, not hook it up to anything, and thus get no sound.  cool.gif

Hey guys, so I need to add the O2 amp into my current setup. Currently I have PC>optical toslink>Dacmagic(original)>unbalanced RCA>NAD-320BEE>Wharfedale 9.1.

 

Can I use an XLR to 3.5mm from the output of the dacmagic to the O2?

Why not? The O2 accepts a 3.5mm TRS input.

I just wasn't sure if there was any problem with a balanced output terminating with an unbalanced input. Would I notice a difference inq uality if I used XLR>RCA for my speakers?

post #1285 of 3214

Well, you're not going to get the noise reduction benefits of using a balanced connection, but there likely isn't going to be any problem in terms of output, as long as your cable isn't really long.

HI guys, I am planning to purchase the ODAC + O2 combo. I'm wondering if the dac works if i connect it directly to an iDevice using the Apple camera connector kit.

Does the O2 start making a thumping sound or pulsating sound through the headphones when the battery is low?
