    Matrix Audio Mini-i 3 and Mini-i Pro3 DAC

    It's interesting you mention this. I too have noticed this on my Matrix Mini-i 3 pro recently. In my case it's intermittent so it's been hard to troubleshoot. I'll keep you posted if I find the source of it. Do you have an external amp connected by any chance? (could be a ground loop)

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    My apologies. I corrected my post as I had tip/sleeve indicated for both of them. Should be tip/ring for one and tip/sleeve for the other.

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    The Beyer cable is wired differently than the Hifiman cable. One uses tip/ring configuration and the other uses tip/sleeve on the headphone plugs. Sorry I can't remember which is which but I discovered it when making my own cables.

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    It's a good question as there have been some changes to RME's lineup over the years. The only recent change has been the addition of a new Pro offering that has a balanced 4.4mm output and some updated internals. The ADI-2 DAC FS has only had chip changes as far as I'm aware. Due to a fire at...

    iFi audio ZEN Stream - Streaming elevated to a higher plane

    Try opening device settings in Roon. (Click on the volume control in the Roon app and then on the settings icon). At the bottom there is a an audio device section, there you click on Device info and it will take you to a screen where you can switch to USB. This is weird as the more common issue...

    @Mr BubbaHyde Thank you for the great detailed and thorough review of the Neo Stream! I'm especially looking forward to your impressions of the Neo Stream DAC vs. the RME ADI-2 (which I believe you still own) and also comparisons between the Neo Stream and the Zen Stream using Roon. Your reviews...

    iFi Zen Stream: Setup, Tips, Tricks...

    Yup it's a great piece of gear. I ordered one and returned it as I found it too finicky, but missed the Loudness and EQ functions, so I got another one. Thank goodness for Amazon return policies! The ZS in combination with it makes for a great desktop system.

    iFi Zen Stream: Setup, Tips, Tricks...

    Yes I think we have a little confusion here. My Mac is plugged directly into the USB input of the RME ADI-2 DAC and doesn't involve the ZS at all. All I use the ZS for is Roon streaming with the ZS connected via Coax to my RME ADI-2 DAC. There's nothing connected to the USB output/input on the ZS.

    iFi Zen Stream: Setup, Tips, Tricks...

    No it is my Mac which I use for Apple Music, YouTube etc into the RME. The Matrix Audio mini has been relegated to a bedroom system as I preferred my RME for my desktop system. With a built in streamer the Matrix is a great all in one DAC/Headphone Amp. It looks like iFi will be coming out with...

    iFi Zen Stream: Setup, Tips, Tricks...

    Yes I have my Mac mini plugged into the USB port, in addition to the Coax coming from the ZS. And just to add, before I tried your suggestion I was on the beta software and the subsequent testing of your method was on the non-beta version 2.31.7 as that's the version you were using.

    iFi Zen Stream: Setup, Tips, Tricks...

    @Mr BubbaHyde I tried your suggestion this morning following your instructions and I still have the problem of no audio on shutdown and restart of the stream on Coax. This is on both AIO and Roon mode on the stream. I tried a couple of times both with and without powering off my DAC (RME ADI...

    I'm on Roon build 1.8 build 1105. Just tried it again with power down for only a couple of minutes, same issue, Roon shows as playing but no sound even though SPDIF shows as selected. Open settings, change to USB and back to SPDIF, sound reappears. I seem to recall experiencing this before...

    I've found the same thing when powering down my ZS. Connected via SPDIF, Roon playing but no sound, reselect SPDIF in Roon settings and voila, sound again.

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    I have the same problem with my Liquid Platinum hybrid. With the RME at recommended line out settings I also have very little range on the volume knob. Couple that with the fact the amp has a slight channel imbalance at lower volumes means for me the RME is doing the preamp duty, with no sound...
