    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Hey everyone. I've have an original CDM that's (sadly!) been sitting in its original box for the last 3 years. with my career change, I'm on the road too much and just haven't been listening to it. Such a gorgeous product deserves more love! If anyone's looking for an original (glass...

    ALO Continental Dual Mono (Silver) + Black Dragon USB cable + extra DC charger

    bumping this.   I had it offline for a bit - as I thought some cash was coming through.  Unfortunately, it did not, and I have to sell again.

    ALO Continental Dual Mono (Silver) + Black Dragon USB cable + extra DC charger

    Sad to sell my Continental Dual Mono (Silver) amp.  If you're looking at/for this, you probably know what it is - and how it sounds.  I love this thing, and wouldn't be selling if I wasn't in a tough economic spot.   Also included is a Moon Audio Black Dragon USB cable.  Made an enormous...

    FS: Sennheiser HD 700, + Black Dragon BALANCED Cable, + desk stand

    Selling my Sennheiser HD700's, plus Moon Audio Black Dragon V2 BALANCED (2.5mm TRRS) cable, plus desk stand.     I barely used them... they sat at my desk and I had plugged into my ALO Continental Dual Mono (which I will also put up for sale).  But, I found myself using my IEM's >95% of the...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Hey @probemax.  Sorry to hear that.  Do you see it in "Sound" devices under System Preferences?     No, not using any fancy music player - just straight off the OS.  Didn't install CmediaDoP.     When I talked to Ken & Vinnie @RMAF they hinted to that there may be other challenges going on...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Hey Ken - and everybody.  Good news on Mac support!   Installed the latest OS (El Capitan) and, like others have reported, it's seemed to fixed the Mac connection issue.  Now, the CDM is seen right away by the OS.   Just told Vinnie in person yesterday at RMAF... will try to find you and...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Thanks, Ken.   So, I've found the same thing that others have seen:  The CDM does not work natively with (i.e. directly plugged into) my Mac, but when plugged into a USB hub (in this case, my Thunderbolt display) seems to work again.     FYI - I'm having this problem on a 2013 Retina MacBook...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Wow, @ZzmadzZ - that's nuts!  So sorry you're dealing with that.     I can't wonder if it's an issue with that unit??  My CDM paired with my MacBook Pro (running OSX Mavericks) on the first try, and has worked every time.  I use several USB cables, and no issues there.  Have put it on my...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Ditto that on the IEM performance.  I don't own a Studio6 (::drool::), but came from the V3 Continental - and my JH-13's are operating in a whole new league now.  It does make me wonder where IEM's can go...    I'm not too educated on higher-end (so-called 'musical') IEM's.  Please keep us in...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Maybe it's a Yosemite thing??  There's always a ton of apple forums out there on known issues with OSX.  Perhaps there's a thread out there with known Yosemite USB bugs?

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    yep - both a 13" MBP retina and a 15" MBP retina.  My understanding of USB would have me guess that is that this *probably* not a hardware issue.  USB has been pretty darn standardized for some time now, right?  I'm also guessing that the Wolfston DAC chip has the USB-compatibility built into...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Yes - do so every day!  ;)  Some comments which may help:   (1) You do not need to download the (any) Mac driver - that driver is only for DSD playback.  The Mac should natively see the USB device - regardless of your operating system.  (This capability has been built into OSX since the...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Yo @DecentLevi!  Actually, it was your reviews that pushed me over the edge to jump in a pre-order!  It's all your fault!  ;)  As a pre-order, it came with an extra set, but I've not listened to any other than the 'stock' tubes.  I think Ken talks about the extra ones he threw-in for the...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Yes, I simply went into the Apple "MIDI Setup" program where you can set all the sampling rates and bit-depths for any given sound device.  Once I updated it in there, it remembered the settings every time I plugged it in.   I am, however, still having challenges getting the higher sampling...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Hey y'all - this is my first post.  I joined Head-Fi just because of this thread - and the CDM.  Absolutely looking forward to it!     Question for Vinnie:  If you have the DAC plugged into a Mac laptop, can you control the volume of the DAC w/ the volume keys on the keyboard?  (You could on...
