    A note of warning to anyone considering the iHA-6 or the iDAC: I ordered them from one of the ebay sellers, and they said that the new versions of this is 220v-230v only. I don't know if that's because that seller only carries the 230v version and doesn't have the English to get that across or if there was an actual change in production? I sent an Email to Musicteck to see if they have any 110v versions, which I really hope they do. I was really looking forward to using this stack, especially because my LCD3 have a dual 3 pin balanced silver dragon cable with them. Dual 3 pin is a bit hard to find.

    **Edit** I got the answer, and that information was incorrect. Musicteck sells units with proper US 110v

    I think the eBay seller means he can only get 220V version, Cayin don't supply 110V version to 220V dealer, that's our policy since day 1 we launch iDAC-6 and iHA-6, they just pretend we change our practice recently and put the blame on us.

    I have a question about the iha 6. If i had a separate dac whose output is RCA and i use that as input to the iha 6, would the balanced jacks on the front still work? I heard that there are some amps whose balanced outputs only work if the balanced inputs are used so I'm wondering if it's the case for the iha-6.

    Thanks

    IHA6 will convert single end input to differentiate signal before feed to the amplification circuit, so you don't need to worry about using RCA with iHA6, you probably won't notice the different when compare to XLR input unless you AB compare them critically.

    Hello!
    I have the question tu users iDAC-6 from Windows 10.

    I used iDAC on TUSB Audio Class Driver 1.61.0 for a long time without the problems. But I installed Cayin USB Audio Driver V3.30.0_For Windows 7 and above (new version with balans’ regulation). Everythink was ok, ( TUSB Audio Class Driver 1.61.0 I uninstalled in autostart).
    I uninstalled (IObit Uninstaller) TUSB Audio Class Driver 1.61.0 and it was a beginning of my problems. Equipment stoped to play. I uninstalled Cayin USB Audio Driver V3.30.0_For Windows 7 and above – and I was surprised, it played again. (I suppose on driversWindows 10), but first i had 2 channels (L, P), after 4 (L,P, Ś, Sub)

    Be careful of location because the chinese sellers on ebay and aliexpress only sell the 220v version.

    This was my first show demo set of iDAC-6 and iHA-6, a pre-production version if we might call it. We only make about 10 set like this for demo and go through the safety certification in China, EU and US.

    The voltage selection switch has been removed in order to satisfy the latest CE (equivalent) certification in China, so it never happens in the retail version. The retail shops knows about this, they just "prefer" to use this photo so that we they can sell the unit to oversee market".

    I have include the back panel of my current demo set for your reference.
