Did you have any issues getting your Theta to work with the Gustard via Coax?
Still waiting on my Gustard to ship here :/
What are you using for a transport right now?
S/PDIF pass-through from my HT Omega Claro + soundcard. I am using a cheap toslink cable to hook it up to my Theta. No degradation of sound I am sending a pure PCM stream at 16-bit and 44/48khz to the Theta. Toslink cables shouldn't matter anyways it's just light traveling along some plastic fibers.
I can still play everything from 16-bit/24-bit and 96-192khz without any noticeable degradation of sound quality. Is the decoding done at the sound card and the Theta can simply receive the PCM??
With a 4-month waiting list and ~2200 USD in my Paypal account ? April 20, people, April 20 - it's a shame because this is one weekend where spending my days indoors would have made infinitely more sense than going out into this madness. The idiot brigade should be rolling down the highway from Bangkok by now - happy days ...
You computer is probably downscaling it to 16/44 because of your OS settings. There's a school of though that there's no effective gains past 16bit audio because we don't even use the full 16bits that we have already. This could be why you're not hearing a difference.
(I picked my words carefully there because it's not my intention to debate the 16 vs 24 thing in here. There's a sound science thread for that.)
Oh a correction. I am using a HT Omega Claro Halo sound card.
Looks pretty quality though.
LOL. So the Yggy gets the 2200USD from your paypal account then...
Haha omg you have a really colorful community
Is he really? I thought that was a joke title because of his custom EC amp.
Have you tried altering the power-on sequence of the different components? Like maybe the theta wants to be powered on last, or first, or second or whatever. It's also not unheard of for cables that work for one peripheral to not work with another, might be worth trying another coax cable or switch over to optical instead.
Colorful describes the language you'll want to use when they pour icewater down the back of your shirt.
Do you feel clever?
Not by half.
hahaha that may be so
I have not tried that. With everything on, I was swapping cables between two source/transports and three dacs; every combination worked except the U12 and Theta. I even tried two different sources for the U12...
