I installed a Gustard spdif converter yesterday replacing the original V-Link which topped out at 24/96. I am now hearing mild static at 192hz but not at 44,88,96, or 176.4. The problem is I cannot tell if it is from my MF M1 DAC which I never used at 192hz, or the Gustard. Everything sounds remarkable at anything but 192hz. If I use Audirvana to restrict the signal to 176.4 the noise disappears. Any ideas? I don't have an additional DAC...
Hello fellow nerds, I am thinking about purchasing the ifi-audio iusb. This $200 unit sits between the computer server (Mac-mini or CAPS) and the DAC or "SPDIF converter". It electronically separates the hifi-equipment by injecting its own "clean" +5V USB power, instead of the "dirty" one accompanied by the server USB output. My question is this: Would this unit do a similar job (or produce the same results) as the more expensive option of upgrading the computer power supply to a linear one? Since the iusb is isolating the computer noise, and the SPDIF converter is taking care of jitter, seems kinda redundant to upgrade the power supply on the computer side. Thanks
