ODAC clipping with E6 AND A5+

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey all! As you can see from the title i am currently having issue getting my ODAC to not clip, this is regardless of usb port etc. My setup is Foobar WASAPI event mode > ODAC > E6 >AD700 and also with my Foobar WASAPI event mode > ODAC > Audioengine A5+

 

Using a hard -6db limiter does the job, but then i have to use windows mixer etc. Advanced limiter doesn't seem to alleviate the problem. Turning the volume down (in foobar or windows.) helps a bit, but not a lot.

If you are not using E6's bass boost, you can set it to the last EQ which will lower the gain and should help with preventing clipping. ODAC outputs near full 2Vrms so it tends to clip portable amps that are tailored to iPad's 0.55Vrms line-out.
