Hey guys, would this unit be powered sufficiently by 2.0 USB ports? Or will I need to supplement it with an externally powered USB hub?
Also, I'm wondering if I will have any issues (distortion, clipping, funny noises, problems with operation, or any problem possible) plugging this thing into my power bar? Or should I just plug it into the wall socket? And if I plug it into the wall socket can something else be plugged into it as well?
Like, ya know how there are two sockets, one above the other, would using BOTH sockets (one for my odac+o2 and one for my power bar that runs my computer and stuff) be a problem?
I'm just being super extra double sure with all these questions before I drop 300 bucks :P
Also, this thing is neutral, and transparent right? 'Cause, that's why I'm interested in it.
Edit: Does it matter if I get the headphone jack to be the 3.5 or the 6.5? Is there any difference in performance? I was also thinking I'd get the gain options at 1X & 2.5x. The 1x would be for my KRK KNS 8400 and the 2.5x would be for when I get the HD600. Thing is, I heard that if you don't raise the volume past 10'oclock on this thing there is a channel imbalance. So, a 2.5x would be too strong for my not-so-hungry KRKs. But it'd suit the HD600 nicely. Correct me if I'm wrong! :)
