Some say 50-150 hrs, and some find it all there "out of the box".

With the goals of that speaker in mind, it should be an excellent match.

Yes, I think now days most aficionados tend to feel that putting a few hours on a component, and listening to it "warm" can affect the sound.

How much is still debated.

I tend to think 50-150 hours might insure that the sound will not change too much after that period.

Hello,

I use a USB input on DAC 9.
Has anyone compared other inputs to USB?
The source is diy linux player. It only has usb output.
So maybe I'm thinking of some DDC (digital to digital converter).
For example, Singxer-su-1 ..
What do you think?

regards,
Simon

I think you want to run as few connections as possible, keep USB. You might want to experiment with cables though.

Hello,

USB is always the best because of asynchronous transfer and higher sampling rate. But then, 24/96K with good recording is all you need.

Hello,

me again  :)
Now I have DAC 9 and Sonodyne SRP 205.
Sound very good.
But what do you think...Is some tube preamp like ARC LS16,17 and higher be better for volume control than
Dac 9?

Sorry for bad English

I think system and device compatibility is important here.
DAC-9 already has an integrated preamp and adding an external preamp at this level is not going to make much of a difference.
Don't rush to upgrade everything all at once, take your time.

Hello,
I've been testing my new DAC-9 for a week. I have a problem with digital inputs. When I connect the Pioneer PD 9300 CD player, the sound disappears from time to time. After a while the sound comes back. Both at the optical and coaxial input. There is no rule. Sometimes there is no problem for an hour. And sometimes the problem repeats every few seconds.
What is the reason for this?

I tried to connect the Pioneer PD S702 but the DAC-9 does not want to cooperate with it at all (optical).

Thank you for your help.
