    Is your Micro iDSD in pre-amp mode or direct mode? Make sure all modes are off on both devices. No XBass, no 3D on either.

    Might be a silly question but should the iDSD BL be in Pre-amp or Direct mode if connected to an iMac? I assume it should be on Pre-amp mode if you want to use the DAC of the BL, otherwise it would use the internal DAC in the iMac?

    I'm guessing direct mode if you want to use it as the DAC and not use it's volume control. The exception to this would be if the output is too high for the input of the amp being used. Usually amps have the volume control on the input, but some, for lower distortion, have their volume control after the first gain stage. In that case, the input can be overloaded easily.

    Oh, that's right. I remember reading that direct mode is the setting to use the BL as a DAC only and bypass the amp. I guess I wasn't thinking when I made my post. Thanks.

    Yes, direct mode is the way to go if you want to bypass vol. control.

    On a side note folks, our new site's up and running! Hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as we do!

    Seriously better site, great job. I used to do web site development and search engine optimization and the new site is most definitely an improvement.

    Sincere thanks to both of you. We wanted to improve our site for months and we're happy that it finally happened. We also think the new version is far better and far more user friendly.

    the new site was a shock to me when I opened it up I've been out of the loop for a bit I like it though looks very clean well put together and feels intuitive. I had a question about the ican pro does using the 3.5mm compared to the 6.3mm give you a greater chance of hitting over protection (red light situation) since it uses the iematch?

    Guys what is the Pro iCAN's best suggested balanced output for headphones -- is it the 4-pin XLR or that iFi's system with 2x 6.3 mm jacks? Or something else.
     
  11. Currawong Contributor
    The 4-pin XLR and dual-3pin are identical, so I'd just use the 4-pin XLR. Ideally in the future I hope they switch to 1x 6.3, 1x 4pin XLR and 1x 4.4mm Pentaconn.

    @iFi audio
    If I buy the iFi Pro iCan from US which is a 120v to be used in Malaysia which is a 240v, can I just buy a 240v power supply brick from iFi? I'm assuming the only difference needed to make it work is the power supply brick?
    And how much does the power supply brick alone cost?
