That will work fine, with no issues.

Thank you

Hi everyone.
I have a question. Is it possible to dim the LEDs in Dac-9? Can you insert any foil from the inside? How does it look like?

A faster and convenient way is to use a dark marker pen with fine tip to darken the LED without opening up the case.

Dark foil would cover all holes at once. But is it possible to put this film between LED and case? I haven't opened the case yet.

I have a DAC-9, very happy with it. But, when using my brand new Onkyo cd-player as a transport to the DAC-9 I sometimes get 1 second long sound drop out. Using the coax input. RCA works perfectly. Is this jitter? How do I fix it ?

Hard to say if the problem is with the Onkyo CDP or DAC-9. We have sold over a thousand Nuprime CDT-8 Pro and many of them are used with DAC-9, never heard such problem.

Thank you for your answer. It's a strange problem, never heard of it myself. If someone else here has any experience I appreciate your input.

It could be a "digital handshake" delay.

That means the player, or DAC does not sense and connect to the digital stream immediately.

Not sure of any remedy.  It could be a delay in the DAC sensing the stream, the Player not sending, or a weak cable.

You might try switching cables, as well as COAX and OPTICAL.

Thanks John. Must be the cable or the cd-player. I'll try another coaxial cable. It's a shame, because when I use the coaxial input on the DAC-9 the sound is excellent. Just these  distracting drop outs...

I had a similar problem. Two sources / amplifiers were connected and when I only turned on the power one, the signal disappeared from the first one. Weird. Could this be a "ground loop" problem !?
