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?
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.
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.
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.
Good advice. Thanx.
Good to know it. I haven't expereineced this so far. I'll try soon.
