@mvvRAZ You should be, it's an amazing piece of gear.
I first had the chance to listen to it a few weeks ago using my Andromeda S, and for two hours I did not move, completely perplexed by what was happening

then you should be pleased once you learn how to properly exploit all the features in this DAC.

aside from an astonishing set of Chi-fi IEMs the RME ADI2-DAC is one of my better recent acquisitions (ie. no plans on selling)

Which IEMs did you get?

I’m planning on using it with my Andro and my A18 for the most part, never got into the ChiFi hype myself

I picked up a set of KZ ZS10 Pro for $36 on Amazon (lightning deal + $5 coupon). they match the sound I am looking for. nice balanced sound and more detail than you would expect from a $49 IEM. are they perfect... No, but they hit a level of sound some higher priced gear can't IMO

I pulled the trigger on the ADI-2 DAC and I absolutely love it so far! I am using it as both a DAC and AMP right now and I am curious if I should have Hi-Power constantly on or if I should just switch on Auto Ref Level or just leave it as Lo-Power? I am currently pairing it with DT 1990's
Play around with it and go with what you like best, no wrong answer when you do that. Also revisit this practice every couple weeks, to refine it =)

Also if you get other headphones do the same thing, this applies to amps as well.

Have fun and enjoy the ride!

Will the ADI-2 Dac control the volume on the xlr and rca simultaneously? For example if I have my powered monitors connected from the balanced output and the sub with the rca output will it control the volume for both at the same time?

Yes... that’s exactly what I am doing (see my signature)

I'm experiencing the following with the unit in Class Compliant (driverless) mode:

Foobar WASAPI Push plays fine, but Event gives me distorted audio.
MPC-BE MPC Audio Renderer WASAPI Shared plays fine, but Event makes the video lag.

Anyone else?
