AFAIK, there are no electrolytic capacitors, transformers, or transistor-oscillating circuits on an ODAC and there shouldn't be anything that would cause oscillation, either - except the clock chip.  I don't know enough about it and haven't heard a DAC that does this - but I would suspect something in the clock or USB negotiation that causes it.

 

If thats the case its very odd, because acc. to the post the whine is external, not through the headphone.

Yes, that was understood.

So another update on the ODAC issue. This past Tuesday I had shipped the ODAC to JDS Labs for inspection. On Friday I received the ODAC back with a note that there was an issue with the USB section of the ODAC, and it was replaced for free!

 

Thanks JDS Labs, A+ company!

 

Definitely will order from them again, very easy to deal with their customer service and they were very helpful.
