    Reading the Dave user manual, I understand that Dave has two analogue outputs (XLR, RCA), which are both active at the same time.
    Can the volume be adjusted independently for each of these? If yes, would this be possible:
    - setting the attenuation for balanced output to fixed level (0 dB)
    - setting the RCA output to variable level and using the remote control for adjustment?

    Sorry but the answer to all your questions is 'no'.
  3. townes
    Anyway, thank you very much for your answer. That's appreciated.

    Probably it has been discussed before, but what is your guys opinion about optical vs USB audio? So far, the optical connection is not the same as my UBS optimized signal path from my computer. But perhaps it is because I am using a cheap optical cable (and maybe a better optical cable will improve results?).

    Also I assume the Chord Dave doesn’t support HMDI ARC for audio? :p

    Thanks to everyone for their advice on the upgrade

    A quick question over on audio bacon, Jay said that he prefers bnc input 3&4 into the Dave rathan than using bnc input 1&2 has anyone here heard any difference

    Your thoughts?

    There is no audible difference. For some DAVE owners there were dropouts using the M Scaler and the solution was to use BNC 3+4 instead. Beyond that, any claimed differences in sound are baseless nonsense.

    Well it is not quite baseless nonsense because BNC inputs 3 and 4 are further away from the Dave analogue outputs so the logic is that any RF noise piggy backing on the BNC cables is nearer to a route into the analogue side of Dave if BNC inputs 1 and 2 are used.
  13. Deano1974
    Thank you, I couldn't hear any difference also

    That’s not logic, it’s unfounded speculation that isn’t backed up and belongs in the audio science forum. It’s unfortunate that so many posts here are devoted to RF and to the extent they unfairly devalue the DAVE and have alienated so many contributors from this thread.
