    This just reminds me of fact you can have AC and DC on the same wire.

    Do you think lgv30 with usb audio player pro is good streamer for tt2? Thank you

    Here's my cent.
    The digital information is stored in analog waveforms as you said. The waveforms vary while the digital information remains the same. That's the stability of digital media. A perfect DAC should completely get rid of those various waveforms and always output the same as long as the digital contents are the same, however, we don't have such a perfect device. That's why even a USB cable can affect audio performance - it brings distortion into the analog part of the digital signal.

    Sounds to me like the AK380 is definitely the better source. I've experienced this before and when there is less RF noise the volume is usually less and you want to turn it up.

    Just got my TT2 and M scaler. Is there a way to display the sampling rate other than the colors? Thanks

    It displays briefly in the LCD display

    When enabling bit perfect in UAPP and turning on flight mode then it "should" sound great. Youll have to test for yourself though and see what you think.

    I am also curious to know how HMS displays the input sample rate - this topic is completely omitted from the on line manual. There is mention of colours for video mode, input type and output sample rate, but no mention of input sample rate.

    It uses the First dx light to display input sample rate using a different colour for each rate and those colours are listed in the manual.
    When connected to tt2, u get further signals, like the big coloured light on top of the tt goes the same colour, the lcd on tt2 briefly echos out the rate too... may be one more place too.

    For those interested in furthering their knowledge concerning the very essence of digital vs analogue signals i found the following wiki overview enlightening and it highlights some very basic facts that i for one had taken for granted. the topic is simply "signal".


    That's my good deed for the day done.

    I am planning this experiment soon since maybe if background processes are off I can get phone to charge while supplying TT2

    Thanks for the info. I have read the HMS manual three times and cant see any mention of the DX light showing input sample rate. Which page did you see it on? I had a TT2 on demo for a month so quite familiar with that - with HMS connected I would of thought that the TT2 would show the upscaled sample rate (eg 705.6 kHz).

    Indeed it does. First, briefly in the display and secondly in the top window. However, I for one can’t detect the subtle difference between the colours for 705.6 and 768.
    The DX light on HMS reflects the input sample rate by colour (red = 44.1,green = 96 etc).

    It’s not in the manual :) not that I could see

    Fresh out the box with only a few hours on it, I’m definitely loving the detail I’m hearing with TT2. However, just like my Hugo 2 when it was brand new, IMO Chord dac analog output sections need some break-in time to sound their fullest and smoothest. To my ears, Hugo 2 was so thin and brittle sounding the first 50-100hrs it was borderline unlistenable, but recently at over 300hrs it was so much more fleshed out and smooth I almost didn’t wanna sell it to buy TT2. It was that good. TT2 isn’t nearly as problematic fresh from the box but I’m definitely hearing that new amp brittle sound that fades over time. Anyway, here’s a few pics I took on this rainy southern California morning..
