Or you can drill through the USB A header until the pin for the 5V supply is gone.


FYI, I had tried asking a vendor to custom made a USB A-B cable with +5V line un-connected. He  accidently dis-connect the GND, too. The result: PC cannot detect T1. It costs me more for shipping it back for reconnection and paying an additional fee for USB-A connector. Bummer. I dare not asking him to just connect the GND only as I'm afraid it may not work.

Forget headphones good lord I finally realize why these speakers cost over $3000 now . WHOLE other ballgame people. I'm near speechless. First song I played I just literally started laughing within 30 seconds of hearing the highs and the bass so pure and sweet. It's just unreal.

 

Have receiver on Direct so its DAC or tone and bass controls aren't altering the sound at all. It's just pure joy..

 

And there are better tubes out there ...haha seriously. Insanity. I just don't know what to say. Best $130 I've ever spent in my life. Only complaint is I didn't realize how many 192khz tracks I had so that's pretty much a bummer. Can't foobar downsample them and play them out so T1 can handle it? Also I have ripped blu ray concerts into 5.1 and it won't play them back either, my on board audio would just bring all channels together for stereo playback even though it was 5.1 not the T1 I guess. Those are pretty big issues as they are some of the most listened to stuff I have but oh well either way this thing performs WAY WAY beyond it's price.

 

I seriously was just in it to check it out and resell it on trade forum here but I don't think there is any way now I will ever do that...unless they come out with 192khz version. Magical

 

This little thing can transform music into pure joy.

 

EDIT after spending just 5 minutes searching yea got plugin to down mix 192 into 96khz. Also already has plugin built in to mix to stereo from multichannel. So sweet, although I'll rerip my blu rays into stereo flac instead of multichannel flac.


I'm using both Foobar and JRiver playing 24/192 files without any problem. Just download the latest ASIO4ALL driver.

Yea but I don't want the pure playback screwed with on any other format, so I just had foobar down convert 24/192 files only. If you're not using WASAPI to keep the audio pure you're doing it wrong :wink_face:,

Created with GIMP
Yeah I would love a black one, too. Can you pm me?

No ASIO4ALL is like Wasapi an interface between pc and usb dac. I guess it just downstream 24/192 to 24/96 just like wasapi. Give it a try,
