Does anyone use their DAC-10 or DAC-10H as a DAC only and feed into their preamp? What volume level should I be setting it at to have the output level equivalent to a line level voltage?
And I should be using Low Gain output (2V), correct?
If you can find the original early DAC-10 Manual
there is actually a method to engage the DAC ONLY, although it is not listed as such.
It was, in that manual version called Home Theater By-pass
(which it was not)
Maybe someone has that manual and can post it.
It converts the DAC-10 to a STRAIGHT DAC, and there is no setting the Volume Control, since it is out of the circuit.
So it acts as a DAC ONLY and yes the output voltage is 2v.
