That's a fantastic price, you should be able to sell it off quickly. I'd certainly spring for it if I didn't already have one. Good luck with the sale anyways, I'm sure whoever gets it will enjoy it!
Received a Glacier today and I must be doing something wrong. I can charge it from my MacBook Pro through both the "charge" and "dac" ports, but my MacBook doesn't recognize it as an external DAC to send audio through the USB port. I hooked up an RSA Predator and my MacBook recognized it immediately. I tried turning the Glacier off before plugging into USB, then turning it on while plugged in. I have also tried it in both DAC modes (charging and not charging).
Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
Is Ray still well regarded? His amps got alot of attention 8 yrs or so ago and were liked alot on 6moons etc
But I never hear about his stuff in headfi tv eps or from event coverage. Is he flying under the radar?
I also think unfortunately portable dac amps may further decline in popularity as the rise of hi-res DAPs continues.
Also full size HPs are getting more and more efficient so it is likely in the next years (with Vinnie Rossi driving the charge)
DAPs will have powerful enough amp sections to not always require an external amp unless you want a specific synergy or colouration.
Personally I am upgrading to a PONO in June. Balanced into my z5 iems is rated as a good experience.
