    Difficulty configuring connections between components (Computer, ADI-2 Pro FS, Tube Amp, Headphones)

    At this point I'd suggest do a factory reset, because your setup should work at the default settings If that fails, you should contact RME

    Difficulty configuring connections between components (Computer, ADI-2 Pro FS, Tube Amp, Headphones)

    According to page 48 of the user manual, PH 1/2, XLR and TS are all channel 1/2 There's no need to set IO. In fact, AD/DA source in the I/O menu is locked at auto Can you make sure options-> device mode -> basic mode is set at Auto? "USB mode active" should pop up Remember if you have anything...

    Difficulty configuring connections between components (Computer, ADI-2 Pro FS, Tube Amp, Headphones)

    If you're connecting to your computer via USB, then USB mode is what you want In USB mode it will output to both the front (PH 3/4 and optional 1/2) and the back (XLR or TS) at the same time My ADI-2 Pro is sitting in front of me right now, in USB mode, with a pair of headphone in PH3/4, XLR...

    Difficulty configuring connections between components (Computer, ADI-2 Pro FS, Tube Amp, Headphones)

    You want USB mode, not digital thru Leave the setting at "Auto", when USB is detected, it'll switch to the right mode (USB mode) for you ps if you want output at the back while a headphone plugged in at the front (3/4), you need to go to options -> phones ->turn "Mute v. TRS 3/4" off

    RME ADI-2 Pro - DAC, Headamp, an a lot of more stunning features

    Anyone knows if the ADI-2 Pro FS R can work as a DSP? i.e. USB in >>> DSP >>> optical out to another DAC Reading the manual it seems possible but can't be sure. Would all the digital features (EQ, filters, analyser etc.) still function this way?

    Violectric DHA V590 DAC/AMP - Blue Velvet

    I really like the old form factor. It's brilliant for desktop placement. Although I understand one may appreciate the wider enclosure for "hifi rack"

    The Stax Thread III

    Many members over at the SR1a thread seem to disagree. Well everyone has different standard on "enough". I don't quite understand how an amp will get "compressed", is this a flaw with the volume control? Or it is worse at certainly volume level?

    The Stax Thread III

    I really appreciate the advice. However in my experience I regretted almost every time I buy something at the middle ground. I wish I have the thick wallet to afford the best but I don't right now, so I'd choose the cheap but okay option. I've been reading a lot of posts and it seems 353X is not...

    The Stax Thread III

    My mind is quite set on the 009 (non s) now. I think I'll start with a cheaper amp at the moment, but I can't decide between 353x and 006tS. (Browsing TOTL stuff made me numb with the pricing, they are still quite expensive!) At this point I just want a neutral, authentic Stax sound. Would a...

    The Stax Thread III

    Then we have quite the opposite taste. To me, the porta pros are all bass and nothing else. Luckily I don't really listen to Holst.

    The Stax Thread III

    It's very intriguing indeed. I wish I had the opportunity to attend a show to try them all. There are a few others TOTL cans seems to be worthy contenders too. The Raal...needs a 100-150 W speaker amp which I don't have. People already have speaker setup would have a much easier decision. But...

    The Stax Thread III

    Hi Stax fans, I am on my search for the endgame, the very best headphone for classical music. What's on my mind are the SR-009 and Focal Utopia. I don't have the chance to listen to neither of them, but based on the opinion on the internet the SR-009 is super fast, crazy revealing and a bit...

    Any recommendation of non-permanent glue/adhesive for pads?

    Hi guys, I'm attempting my first diy job to re-cable a pair of headphone and need to put the pads back afterward. The thing is I can't find a suitable adhesive to do the trick. The perfect glue should be like the one used by the factory, strong enough but you can still peel it off with force...

    Violectric DAC V850 - General Discussion and Impressions Thread

    I doubt the culprit to be the USB cable. While it's being plugged in it was not touched at all, but after a computer reboot it won't recognize again.  Yes it always get it's dedicated port.    I am hoping to get Violectric's attention on it via head-fi, as some other users are experiencing...

    Violectric DAC V850 - General Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Update: Tried that, it's still happening.  I even found another laptop which has a native USB 2.0 port, still took me 5 attempts to connect the DAC.

    I am using a laptop, and all it's USB ports are under Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Mircosoft) The "USB Input Device" under VIO USB 2.0 AUDIO IF does have the "allow computer to turn off" enabled. Although I don't understand what an input device has anything to do with a...

    You think making a DAC is just plugging in a chip? genius

    Why are you even browsing head-fi and made those 1680 posts?   Being a purpose-built device means worse engineering?  That is just ignorance.

    I'm amazed you guys could access that stupid chinese website.  Not even google cached page would load that for me lol.   Ok I could read that cached text. He was trying to say the internal design of the D is simple and straight-forward, very mature design but not like the "hi-fi" devices he...

    I did mine in 30-40 GB batches. More than that should be fine. I don't recommend transferring large amount of files on the sd card via the D though, it gets warm doing that Using a micro sd adaptor to a PC is safer and probably faster.
