    Yes, really big one. But none at the ican however I do not find it a reason to buy ican then...
     
  2. nicodem
    Even with zero you hear hiss. Big one
     
  3. iFi audio
    We'll get back to you shortly. We need to check some numbers.

    OK so finally I decided to buy ifi idsd pro. Just installed. 2.08 firmware.
    And with Roon via Linux while playing MQA I got "OFS 48 or 44 kHz" info. No MQA logo.
    DO you know what settings should be put in Roon to do full MQA?
    here are current ones:

    Tried different DSD playback strategy, enable/disable MQA Core Decoder etc.

    Strange. I removed ifi defender and ifi silencer which were put before USB cable and it worked then - MQA is on...
     
  6. iFi audio
    Andromedas are very sensitive, Pro iDSD's headphone out isn't based on an internal headphone amplifier (like the one in Pro iCAN) but line driver, we'd advise to use i.e. Earbuddy to combat hiss.

    In case of any wierd behaviour or doubts, you can always ask us a qquestion here too: http://support.ifi-audio.com/

    Thanks!

    My new WE396A just arrive and guess what, now it works like a charm :D
    Sound of pair WE396A is stunning, way better than stock GE5670.

    Just updated to firmware 2.08, the 48k DSD playback problem still persist. 44.1k DSD (and its multiple) plays perfectly fine, but 48k DSD (and its multiple) plays, I can hear the music, but it also comes with a very audible white noise! It was fine before the MQA firmware update.
    Tried to submit a ticket through http://support.ifi-audio.com/, after filling out everything and click submit, their web site gave me a 404 (not found)...

    Oh no, now I'm caught into that tube fad too! Can you elaborate a bit about the improvement? Where did you buy your WE396A?
     
  11. nicodem
    @iFi audio - is tube rolling ok with warranty or it breaks this?
     
  12. vonBaron
    I must warn you, you can buy NOS WE396A and they can still don't work, ICan and IDSD it's not tube friendly tube swap.
    But if they do you will be very happy.
    WE396A create very big stage, very musicality, big, deep and quite fast bas.
    In Tube they sound more warm and in Tube+ more sharply.
     
  13. o.fz
    Thanks for your answer and for the warning. I naively thought that the new firmware had improved the tolerance.
     
  14. iFi audio
    It voids warranty.

    Can you open up another ticket please and see if it works now? If not, please let us know via PM, thanks!

    Legally, it would only void the warranty for the damages that would be caused by the new tubes or their swapping, not for anything else.
