O2 AMP + ODAC - Page 215

post #3211 of 3218

Hmmm anyone here using mediamonkey and the o2/odac?  Using wassapi I am unable to play in 16bit 44.1 through mediamonkey.  I need to change it above in order for it to play.  Since I set the ODAC to 24bit 96k per JDS Labs instructions I also set MM to that and it plays, it also seems to play fine at other samples just not 16 44.1.  I tried changing the odac to that and then MM still no go.  Any thoughts?

I'm a recent O2 convert from Asgard 2. I got a great deal on the classifieds here and am stunned with this little guy. I can't really tell any difference between it and Asgard with the HD650, even after several days of back and forth. I love the battery-powered aspect of the whole thing too, I can take it into the living room and listen to records or just lie on my bed or etc.

 

A few questions: Does having it plugged in recharge the batteries? Does high gain or high volume drain the batteries faster? and I was wondering if anyone wanted to trade faceplates? I have a silver JDS O2 faceplate and would really like a black one instead to complement the Gamma2 DAC.

Right there with ya man, Asgard and Bifrost are out, O2/ODAC are in.

Batteries trickle charge while the AC adapter is connected (no risk of overcharging).

 

Run time is dictated by output power, not gain. In other words, louder listening volumes will drain the batteries faster.

So, had a learning experience regarding the O2 + ODAC last night.

 

For the longest time, I've been thinking of buying another ODAC to drive other headphone amplifiers because I bought the combo with the ODAC built in, thinking there was no way to output to another amplifier.

 

Come to find out last night after reading up on the combo at the JDS Labs website that the front line in jack performs double duty and works as a line in from an external source or a line out for the ODAC. For a second, I thought that feature was limited to new runs of the O2 + ODAC combo but, just for curiosity's sake, I went ahead and tried it and (of course) it worked.

 

So, while I might want to get another combo just for the heck of it down the road (sure would be nice to have at my desk at work), I'm glad I don't have to rush out and get one now. :biggrin:

So are you saying there is no purpose to buying the ODAC buy itself then? Unless for some reason you wanted another box.

If you already have the combo and don't need RCA output or want it in a more convenient spot or something along those lines, I would imagine not.

 

I'm glad I found that out though. Just saved myself some money.

Can anyone confirm that the GeekOut sounds similar to 02+ODAC?
