Hi,

 

I don't know a lot about MacOS but I'd assume audio input to refer to ADC functionality (as in sampling music from vinyl etc) which the ODAC does not offer.

Thanks for the reply. I thought I remembered altering this in the past but I may be mistaken.

Input will only be accessible for Mics or any other input Device. ODAC is an output device.

It is as simple as that, isn't it? I am a buffoon. Thank you.

John is one heck of a guy who is outrageously committed to his customers too. There was a time I thought the problems I was having related somehow to the other product of his, the C5D. Boy, was I wrong. My apologies to John on that one.

I am very interested in how these DIY projects test out on the dScope, particularly the ODA. Thanks to AGDR, we have additional options. Options are always a good thing.

PS: I hope he received his evaluation unit back that he let me borrow.


Simply having a slightly more expansive version with say, sturdier jacks, might be worth it

That is my biggest gripe, how 'inexpensive" parts are being used.

AGDR's ODA uses better Swithcraft jacks and will last longer for sure....also it has a sturdy Neutrik  1/4 jack.

98% of my music is 44.1khz 16 bit. I have some 20 bit stuff and HD Track samples.

 

I have my Win 7 OS playback set to 44.1Khz, 24 bits.

 

If I play any higher sample rate stuff I change it to that and go back to 44.1/24.

 

This came from a well know Dac design engineer.

So there's no harm in me setting output to 96000Hz?

The best way is to get it to automatically change the output frequency to match the file being played. Unfortunately I tunes and midi don't work together and do this. For that reason i downloaded channel D 'pure music ' for mac . It's a software player that bolts on to I tunes so you can still use the i tunes interface but pure music does the processing etc so it auto changes the settings on midi. It has lots of other features and you can download it for 1 month free so maybe give it a go and see if you think it's worth the money.

BitPerfect also does this really well, and costs $10.

I'm not trying to be awkward but there are no words to describe how much I detest itunes.

I use JRiver or Cog.

Oh, why the hate for I tunes? Its as user friendly as I could want so I don't know what else you would want from a ui?

It would be useful if it could deal with my 65,000 flac files for starters. I'd also prefer my music player to not also be a shop. Also, I'm old-school.

That's a stupid excuse.
