Could anyone help me please? I'm completely new to this forum so I apologise if I I do things the wrong way.
I have the AK120 Titan with Westone 4R, I also listen by connecting it to a Marantz NA7004 via digital optical. My question is are the DACs onboard the Titan being bypassed when used with the Marantz? So am I losing quality?
Also so far I haven't been able to use it as an external DAC, my Mac and MacBook recognise it but no sound comes. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
If you are using optical then yes you are bypassing the dac on the AK120 and using it as a transport instead. I had my united modded to the S-mod (they upgraded the dual wolfson chips.) Absolutely no comparison from stock at all. Amped via Triad or the T1 amp via LO
