Audio Engine D1 does not recognize Toslink signal

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I own 3 of these little gems. Pretty much happy with them as USB DAC for my Imac and my HP PC. I recently try the optical in from my CD player to my Adam F7s power speakers. It works fine the first time I set it up but after I turn the CD player off for a while then I try to play some CDs again, it does not work. I have to unplug the optical from the AE D1 and plug the optical back in, then it works again. I am tired of the plug in-plug out the optical from the AE D1.

 

I' ve read somewhere, the AE D1 works with certain device and not with certain device.

 

Any suggestion is fully appreciated.

Have you tried just hitting the power switch? Sometimes I use my D1 with my Playstation via optical and it loses audio when I start up a game. If I turn it off and back on the sound returns.

Thank you for the tip, I may try that.Do you also notice how loose and shallow the Optical port on the D1 is ? Most other devices, when I plug in the optical cable to the port, there is a "click" and the optical cable stay firmly. Not the case with the D1. Oh, well it is still a good product if intention is to use it as an USB DAC only.

This is a stupid question, are you powering it via the USB port? It needs to be plugged into either a USB port from a machine that's on or a USB power supply to use any of the inputs.

It feels a little bit shallow on my unit, but it still clicks into place nicely and it's never just slipped out.

To be fair, I haven't used optical connections for many devices so maybe I'm not qualified to say what a good or bad connection is. :)

I bought this from AE site. Way over price for $18.00 but I just want a peace of mind by dealing with an authorized dealer. It's no different than my Ipad plug. ANW, none of my three AE D1 works unless I unplug and reinsert the optical cable every time I want to listen to my CD pplayer. It must be a design flaw. To be fair, I bought these to be use as USB DAC for my laptop and my Imac. So, for an entry level DAC for CD player, please look somewhere else.
