I have the exact same 'issue' with my 3.14, switch it off and the on/off light goes from green to red and the input light goes off and comes back on when the on/off light goes red which looks a bit strange.

Regards

Hi Willy

I have not heard of the LED issue before but they are controlled by software.

Are you using 2 different sources - CD player and another Blueray player? -- If you can I would check with another digital source other than the CD player into the 3.14 DAC to see if the source is the issue.  Also try the XLR digtal output as well as the COAX from the CD player to see if things change.

Other wise I am at a loss as I have the same hookup at home and all seems fine.

PS - also check the cable?

Hi James,

Thanks for the suggestion. I have no explanation why, but there was definitely something wrong with the cabling. Everything is fine now, except for the sometimes strange behaviour of the LEDs.

My BCD-3 sounds very good, but my BDA-3.14 is even better. The sound is cleaner, crisper also. Not a difference of day and night, but clearly audible. Needless to say that I am very pleased with both devices.

To: James and Stuart,

Coincidence or not, but since I removed the Scratch Disk, the BDA-3.14 behaves normally as far as the LEDs concern. When switched off, the standby LED changes from green to red, all other LEDs go off. I will keep you informed.

Hi James,

The BDA-3.14 is still functioning as it should, so no issues with the LEDs.
