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,

how good is Spdif and AES input on this DAC 9, compare to USB input? Because Im buying a new "transport" for my DAC 9.

Simon

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.

Hello, is it possible to include in the dac-9 instead of the input number, constant readings of the sampling rate? thank
and how to do it at home? thank

Hi,
saturday I had the chance to audition the DAC9, together with the CDT8 transport, in a shop.
rest of the set up:
pre Spectral DMC15
power amp Marantz 'don'tknowthemodel'
speakers Rosso Fiorentino, those who look like a coffin (but they do sound good).
overall impressions are sure good, so good that I'm seriously considering buying the combo to replace my Naim CDX2+esternal PSU, but...
results were clearly better, to my ears, when the DAC9 was driving directly the Marantz power amp, without the Spectral pre: more focus, a less confused sound. so, as I should use the DAC with an int'd amp: is it possible to completely by-pass the DAC9 preamp section ?

I too would love that, but somewhere on these forums Jason stated it is not possible.

Just turn the DAC-9 volume all the way up to 99. That was Jason's response to the same question earlier in this thread, and that is what I do now that I have mine connected to another preamp.

94 is 0dB for DAC-9, not 99.
