Hey there, I use a Audio-GD NFB 12.1 as DAC/AMP for listening from Laptop (via USB 3.0) to my Sennheisers HD 600. Now I wanted to use it as DAC only to listen via my Sony TA-F690ES + 2x Magnat Zero 8 speakers, how ever, I get a lot of disturbing hissing from it:
I start the amp (TA-F690ES) and have no hissing on any input channels I select. As soon as I select the Aux Input (where my Audio-GD NFB12.1 is connected to) I have some pretty bad hissing. If I disconnect the NFB 12.1 (so the cables on the AUX Input of my AMP as still connected) the hissing is gone.
So -> Audio-GD NFB 12.1 cinch output has bad hissing. The question is: Does any other DAC have a better cinch output ?
@edit: Gain was on "High" is that makes any difference.. I didn't try it out.
