The Astell & Kern AK120 - Page 433

post #6481 of 6485
New problem with the ak120 feeding hugo. Before when screen turned off the stream became unstable/both headphone out and optical when runny 192 sample rate. Solved by keeping screen on. Now, a month later, hugo doesn't recognize 192 at all, no color, but still works on headphone out of the ak120. Appears that the optical is not streaming 192 at all but works with other sample rates that are lower. Yes the cable is up to snuff.

Do you know wether hugo's optical input receiver is designed to accept 192 (even if  it did it sometimes)?  My Devialet did 176 and almost 192 before it got "upgraded"but now it goes only up to 96 as the optical input receivers which work at 192 are discontinued.  I tested my AK120 on an earlier PSaudio DAC and it worked at 192!

Yes, i found the problem just about an half hour ago. There is a crack in my sys concepts optical cable. It is pretty new, i emailed them, hopefully i can get another. It worked perfectly but maybe it got jostled in my pouch or something and at the angle cracked. I saw the light at the bend and knew that was the problem.

Sorry about your cable. That sounded like it would be the problem...
