How long of a cable do you need?  Fiio L2 , but it is just a short jumper 4' between connectors.  Fiio has other longer ones.  Blue Jeans Cable can make one for you or just grab one from monoprice or C2G.

 

Did you get the new desktop model dac?

So even used as a DAC, the signal has to run through an analogue volume pot? No thank you.

Both were supposed to run through an analogue volume pot. Without the amp you're just listening as if from the RCA outputs.

No isolated psu. Question. What about the "driver" of the dac hifimediy, i using jriver 18.

I understand that. What I am saying is that this is a poor design if you want to use it as a DAC feeding into an amp.

The built-in USB Isolator won't improve sound, at least not if your USB port is decently clean. But having it definitely won't hurt.

It could be useful if the amp can't take full 2V swing. Any case, it should be easy to bypass it if wanted.

hello everyone

I received the good dac hiifimediy yesterday and I'm pretty enerve, let me explain.
j jriver uses version 18, with a laptop and connected to the pc and dac and my dock jbl on beat extrem (on the entry in line 15 kohms).
J have downloaded the driver hifimediy 64 bit.
j have configured WASAPI event style on jriver.
j I put the buffer from 100 to 250 ms to see.

result, I have little sizzling noise as small, and I put high on the dock as the sound becomes saturated, I have the impression that I can also put on his jriver thoroughly either, because it increases crackling.

  the sound in this context is not genial, generally at moderate volume I found a little round. I precise that I already dac in the poppulse super pro 707 and tubemagic maverick d1.

if someone could help me understand what is happening

thank you in advance

Anyone know what the output impedance is on these?

 

Oh, and ClieOS, could you post the measurements you did?

you are talking about the dac output ? 10 ohms j think

post #240 of 970

FWIW, check out this thread....supposedly there are 'problems' with the design of some of the HiFimed dacs (as well as the ODAC), and fixes are discussed.  I guess whether one thinks there are problems might depend upon whether you believe all dacs/chips perform about the same, jitter is irrelevant, etc. 

 

I do not have the technical background to weigh in, nor do I want to start an "objectivist" vs "subjectivist" flame-war.....
