Is this true? If so it's gonna be a real problem for me as my Mac only has USB3 outputs. Damn it, nothing's ever easy.

I'm playing my ODAC through a USB 3 port, sounds fine.

Damn Mac's.  Get a windows PC.  Much cheaper and compatable than the "alumanium" Johnny I'ves keeps raving about.  :D

It doesn't seem to be a Mac-specific issue. There are reports of problems with Windows too. It seems the common factor is the ODAC.

PC, through a PCI-E hub.

 

USB 3 is backwards compatible to USB 2, it's possible that they may be having issues with crappy early USB 3 controllers, but it should work fine with the spec itself.

I think so too. I've had some encouragement over at Computer Audiophile. I'll just have to wait and see. I hate waiting, lol.

The ODAC works flawlessly for me with a Retina Display MacBook Pro, which has USB 3.0 ports.

^^+1, same config.  Never had an issue, it's plug and play here.

Oh this is making me feel good. What is the build year of your MacBooks?

I was expecting that. My Mac is late 2012. If it's a software issue then there's a good chance it's been fixed since I bought my Mac but if it's a hardware problem I could be stuffed.

Happy owner of a head'n'hifi O2 amp, paired with my HD600. Natural and relaxing sound.

I just plugged my ODAC from a USB2 to a USB3 port to check and as expected it still plays fine. My O2 does not get warm.

That's good to know. I'm still worried but, I'm like that I guess. Thanks for the info all the same.
