[i'm not even sure if what i'm experiencing is properly labelled "clipping"]
i've used my dx90 for only a handful of hours. i'm not sure if that's relevent to my question:
i've experienced clipping in ONE place in ONE classical piece [so far] - it's [supposed to be] a relatively sudden transition to a different theme at a louder volume in [i think it's the 2nd movement] schubert's death and the maiden quartet. i replayed it to see if it recurred, and indeed it did. this is playing a flac5 rip of a cd, and i know the rip is good because i've played it over my speaker system without a problem. the sound just disappears for a moment at the transition, then reappears.
i'm using low gain, volume about 200-210, directly out to k812's.
i haven't tried changing the gain setting. would that matter with my low impedance, high sensitivity phones?
any thoughts? or is this just something i have to live with?
It maybe just a software bug. Try a factory reset and check if you hear the same problem.
