Mcintosh + Dacmagic = HORRIBLE DISTORTION!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have the PS3 > Dacmagic > Mcintosh MA6900 Integrated > B&W 805S

When I turn the Dacmagic volume up (and obviously the Macs down) the sound starts distorting, horribly.

But when I turn the DAC vol halfway, the distortion is gone....the same thing when I use the IPAD > Airport Express.

 

But overall I'm getting a muffled sound. Its not crisp.

 

Any idea why?

 

ps: I have tried the Dacmagic in non-preamp mode (push volume in and turn on) but this time I get crazy distortion at ANY volume.

SOLVED : Do NOT plug a DAC into the Phono jack on the Macintosh.
