    Dragonfly Red PC whine

    Unfortunately the dac does not show up in the 'remove hardware and eject safely' box so i'll just have to hope it doesn't cause any problems when I just yank it out.

    Dragonfly Red PC whine

    OK, all is good. I bought it used and did not get the instructions. As is my impetuous way I just shoved it in and pressed play I have set the sample rate to 24-bit/44100.0 Hz and that appears to have fixed it. Thanks so much Steve

    Dragonfly Red PC whine

    Hmmm, that works. However it shall necessitate pulling the PC out every time I want to use it. I have an a-a female usb cable but it reintroduces the whine. I'll have to purchase a nicer one and see if it make a difference. Thanks a lot. Steve

    Dragonfly Red PC whine

    I have just purchased this to use with my iphone and PC as I thought it would be more useful to swap from between the two as my first foray into the world of DAC and (slightly improved) digital audio. I have yet to get hold of a apple to camera cable to use it on my phone but have plugged it into my PC (sound card on the front with the usual usb/minijack outlets) and it makes a huge difference, but with all audio i am getting a high pitched whine. When I pause the audio the whine carries on for 8-10 seconds and then stops. The whine kicks in even if the PC makes it's 'bell sound' when plugging in or removing a peripheral and lasts the same amount of time. It's constant with a permanent audio source, be it itunes, you tube etc. Is it just a rubbish card or something else. I am running the dragonfly with the jitterbug but makes no difference if attached or not. I am a complete newb with this stuff so any help would be appreciated. Ta Steve

    Glad you like it. It's served me well for the last 29 years!
  7. That is a thing of beauty. I’d like to have it just to look at. But I can’t for many reasons 😕 Good luck with the sale.

    What are you listening to right now?

    Last one tonight. CD I saw them in 2012 when this came out. Pretty small gig at the Scala in Kings Cross London. I think the younger of the two girls had only just finished school that year. They were great.

    Saw them live at the Brixton Academy in the early nineties. They were excellent.

    What are you reading?

    I read this last year and it's a bit of fun. Crate diving, HiFi set up, rare vinyl and murders. An easy read. He's written a few. I'll get to them when I've got through a couple of others in the pile.

    A favour for a fellow Wammer

    Oh that’s great. I have also received another offer but can I keep you both in mind and let you know nearer the time. Depending on my work diary (Sometimes I don’t know where I am from one week to the next) I can confirm nearer the time. Cheers Steve
