Understand....

 

AGDR just wants him to know he is willing to help if its needed to get his ODA to the higher 15 rails which would be better in his situation anyway.... at no cost!!

I never understood what the emoticon means or what it's actually showing. There's a guy wearing headphones smacking the butt of a dog with a human face wearing earphones and his head inside of a plastic bag? Wut?

Beating a dead horse. 

 

Means the topic has already been discussed to death.

I think that icon was related to the famous Sennheiser veil. Thats why the dead horse has plastic bag on his head. biggrin.gif

ive had my O2 for around a year now, and recently its been acting up... whenever i turn the volume pot, a loud hissing sound occurs. once ive finished adjusting the volume the hissing goes away, its only while i turn the knob. any ideas for a solution? i cant really afford sending it off to jds... 

cheers

That's a new one. Can you replicate the sound with other audio sources and cables?

isn't it the usual dust(also known as Pringles particles) breaking the surface contact inside the knob? do you have this at any volume or only at specific places on the knob?

try going from min to max and back a few times to see if that changes anything.

I also wanted to know if it's okay to put a lube inside the control knob like low viscosity oil or penetrating oils? I also have this problem... :(

I couldn't stand channel imbalance with a carbon pot so I got myself a 10k 23 steps stepper pot from aliexpress. It's fine balance wise, but sometimes it doesn't lock to step properly and I have to wiggle back and forth a few times. Was thinking of using a 255 step stereo i2c pot + attiny avr + a clicky pot. Might be nice to make a kit

Can anyone recommend something similar to the O2 / ODAC combo but that has both USB and SPDIF inputs? I basically want a completely transparent DAC and amp but I need USB and optical and ideally both coax and optical inputs. I currently have a Benchmark DAC2 HGC but don't need all the extra features so I'm looking to downgrade while still maintaining transparency. Thanks.

I've read some positive reviews on the audio-gd NFB11.32 , from someone whom did move from the O2 stack. I think only the NFB11 is available now but it seems to be the same model which underwent some revisions. This has both USB and optical for your needs.

Your best bet would be the benchmark dac1. They can be had new for 800-900 right now.
