I am still trying to get a good balance between the 6922 Garry suggested. Good recordings sound good.Bad recordings sound too harsh, bright etc.I am going to try Electro-Harmonix 6H30Pi GOLD PINS. I also have a Bugle Boy from the 1960s.6DJ8Thanks,Mike
I couldn't find the "edit" button so I will just provide an update.The short version... it all just started working. lolWell... here is what I did. I tried plugging the USB into my MacBook Pro and it started working. Then I plugged it back into my iMac where I intend to keep using it... and it magically started working on it too.Just giving it some listening time now and I am happy to say that it adds another sound to my system that I can turn to when I'm in that certain mood for that sound.
I took possession of MP-D2 a couple of weeks ago. It's a fabulous piece of gear but I'm experiencing a slightly perplexing fault. I'm using a mac mini with Roon feeding the DAC out of USB. That part's fine - the problem happens when I pause playback. Often when the playback resumes only one of the channels is working. Audio is coming out of one speaker, but only a light hiss out of the other - that tells me that it's not the amp causing the problem. The only way I can get back to two-channels is to restart the DAC.I took the lid off it and checked that all the reachable circuit boards were well seated, and the valves were certainly well seated. Everything looks solidly put together - solder joints etc seem certainly adequate to the task. Could be buggy firmware, mine does something strange too where the Sabre dacs are not detected by the flashing variable light at boot up.And the sound is softer and not enjoyable.I use a UltraRendu and was advised by Gary that it’s the software in the UltraRendu that’s at fault .So what I do is unplug the USB every time I boot up the player and then plug it back to set the dac in the property mode to play.Why do you need to know all this?Perhaps Gary can get you a workaround for yours.Has anyone experienced a similar issue, or can someone please point me in the right direction for troubleshooting?Many thanksMichael
Does anyone have any experience with this DAC vs an R2R design? I am in the market for a new DAC and have been eyeing the MHDT Pagoda. I have read all of the pages on this DAC and it seems like a tremendous value.I have tube mono blocs in the high / mid section of my speakers that are bi amped. These are Prima Luna Dialogue 7 series with 4 x KT88, 2 x NOS 12AU7, and 2 x NOS 12AX7’s in each module.I also have a pre amp that uses a pair of EML Mesh 300B’s and a pair of NOS 12AU7’s.So, lots of tubes already in the system.DSD in not a winner / loser for me, I do have have about 100 titles in my library.Please let me thoughts / feedback - I plan on pulling the trigger in the next 60 days.I also have an iFi galvanic device that is supposed to clean up the USB signal so do not think the clock upgrade is worth the $$.Honestly thinking if I went this route will be probably all stock and I then I have my own tube stash to pick from.Thanks in advance!
What chip do you have? I am leery of the ESS chip.Thanks for responding!
