Why don't use the AK100 as a transport and use optical cable to connect it to your home processor?
DAC is a DAC but the output stage is the key to great sound. I used to have the ibasso DX100 and its lineout is only good and not great. I have much better sound connecting it to my Sony STR-DA900ES digital input.
Hi Vinnie, Glad to see you are monitoring this thread!
Just an hour ago, I experienced the same problem here with my RWAK100 and emailed you with additional information.
I'll try to run the battery down to avoid having to ship the unit back to you, and shall monitor this thread to see if you come up with anything.
Thanks & Bummed as well.
I can't see how the 22ohm resistor bypass, since it is in the output discrete circuit would cause any of this. Some sort of strange current draw affecting the rest of the circuit, a change to the ground? I don't know Vinnie but I am sure he will figure it out.
