O2 AMP + ODAC - Page 228

post #3406 of 3410
Yeah but the dac out doesnt have native preamp functionality. I was looking for a variable line out.

Thanks, I'll post a few pictures.  I believe that I have it wired so that it is supposed to cut the signal out when an input is plugged in, but it doesn't seem to be working.

 

Btw, is it a mechanical switch?  i.e. the presence of a plug in the jack should cut out the ODAC signal?

Yes, the input jack from the O2 parts list has a switch and will either ground the input of the O2 when no plug is in (for O2 standalone) or connect ODAC to the input w/o plug (ODAC/O2 combo). You can get the instructions for this if you google for odac may update - we aren't allowed to post the links here due to some unfortunate events of the past.

silly detail, but the odac being usb powered, we don't have to turn the O2 ON to use it as a standalone DAC. I also realized that very late so I mention it for others ;).

 

Same here, except for me it was more like over a year until I figured out the front input of the O2+ODAC functions as a line out for the ODAC too.

 

I was considering buying a standalone ODAC for the longest time until i figured that out.

O2 left channel died, bye guys have fun with your hifi endeavors!

I'll be using the ODAC with the Dared MP5 if the dealer confirms the deal biggrin.gif
