Hi All, I've owned a iBasso D2 viper (with replaced opamp chip) for quite some time now. Since using it when connected to my Mac via USB it slowly developed a loud cracking/scratching sound when I change volume. It also continues to crackle lightly in the background. If i very gently adjust the volume i can try minimising the background noise. but its pretty annoying. I use it with Shure se530's so they obviously are quite susceptable to that sort of static sound going on...
Anyway, to the point... I'm about to invest in a Schiit asgard (http://schiit.com/cart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=0&products_id=1) (to finally use with my hd650's) and I wanted to use my little iBasso as the DAC. So instead of investing in a Music Streamer II or Schiit Bifrost. I'd like to try replacing whatever part is effecting the iBasso. Do you think there is is anyway to simply replace the volume knob from an electronics store?? I have a soldering iron, or would iBasso replace this sort of thing? (at my expense)
Cheers for any help
