Topic: Just a couple of questions from a beginner
Hi all, I'm set on buying the ADI-2 DAC today and have read the manual and forum in preparation. I'm a little unsure on a couple of points so I thought I'd ask.
Firstly I'm not sure where to source an XLR to RCA cable that has pin 3 disconnected, as per the manual. I saw a thread on here about the same matter but the links to suitable products are now dead. I'm in the UK and I'm having a hard time finding a suitable lead, so if anyone could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. I'd like to run the RCA out to a headphone tube amp and run XLR out unbalanced to my speaker amp.
Second is that I'm a bit confused as to what output settings I should use for my speaker amp. I have the option on that amp to change a source's RCA input voltage to 4V, but obviously the ADI-2 has variable output too. What settings would be optimal in this situation?
Third is just a question of how often shipped units are flashed with the latest firmware. I have no access to a PC at the moment so would be unable to update the ADI-2 for a while. The dealer - Juno Records - said that the units were only just received in January so are likely to have the latest revision on them, is this the case?
I think that's it for now, thanks in advance for your help.
