Just ordered a dragonfly v1.2 USB Dac have a few questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if there will be any issues if I plugged the DAC into my keyboards (Logitech G710+) USB pass through port or a USB extension cable. Can I run into any issues this way? Would I be better off connecting the device directly to my Pc?

There may be voltage issues and adding to the keyboard USB chain is adding a bit more complexity.  This means if the keyboard USB connection has issues the DAC will as well.  Going straight into the PC should reduce the possibility of unwanted noise getting into the audio chain as well.

What kind of issues can they keyboard have? It actually has a separate USB cable that runs from the back of the keyboard to a separate usb port on the back of the PC just for the USB plug on the back of the keyboard.

 

Also, can this problem also happen with a separate USB extension cable?

Also, it has an analogue volume control, does using my PCs volume control have the same effect? I ask because it looks like i'll have to plug it into the back of my PC. which is under my desk so i wont have access to it to change volume.
