I heard great things from the Magni/Modi and being new to the world of audio, i figured this was a good stack to start with. It arrived, i set it all up and have done everything i can think off, and i can get no sound at all from them.
The Magni/Modi light up fine. The computer detects the device fine and installs the drivers, i set the device as default and the volume mixer seems to show sound going through it, but there is no sound at all on the headsets, no matter the volume on the computer or the amp. I'm using PYST RCA cables, standard USB 2.0 cable, sennheiser hd 598 headphones (which work fine through any other audio device).
I've tried it through 2 separate windows 7 computer, a windows vista laptop and a different windows xp laptop and all four of them have the exact same problem. I have also tried 2 separate USB cables and another headset (a friends hd 558s), all of which work fine otherwise.
I've been onto the retailer who sent me out a replacement modi as he believed it was defective, but i have the exact same problem with the new one. The retailer doesn't think its the magni as he got me to remove the RCA cables and to touch the ends of the plugs to the units which caused buzzing through the headphones. (So sound is getting through the amp anyway)
Does anybody have any ideas? I think i've tried everything, but would greatly appreciate any help with this before i decide to cut my loses and just return them.
Edit: I just noticed there that if i touch the end of the plugs that i can hear the computer sound under the buzz (whatever musics playing etc), although its low and muffled and overshadowed by the buzzing. It then goes away if the RCA cable is plugged in any bit at all. Don't know if this helps.
