Folks, after a little bit of searching for the neutral sound signature, I went in for the IDA-6 even though everyone is raving about the IDA-8. Pros: 2x TOSLINK/SPDIF inputs. It arrived yesterday! Its tiny
Initial feedback (needs to be broken in before I can comment on the sound)
- remote control looks like an unfinished lab project
- when I switch the amp, it starts in the standby mode (took some time to figure out). Then if I use the volume control, it switches off and then turns on.
- when I connect my Mac or a chrome cast audio to the TOSLINK port, the display says 44.1 even if I am playing a 192/24 file (and chrome cast audio is 96/24) .... any ideas why?
feedback on the sound - as crisp as my early Nuforce amps or maybe slightly better, I need to listen more. Love the volume control.
