I have loved my DL III for a few years.
Tonight, I was breaking in a new vintage receiver and was chasing down a nasty hum caused by the RCAs coming out of the DL III. If I had the DL III connected to any input, I got volume-specific hum out of the speakers. If I disconnected it, the hum disappeared. I tried different input and same story.
After moving the receiver’s power plug to another circuit to see if that would remedy things, I went to reattach the DAC RCAs. Upon touching the RCA to one of the jacks on the back of the DL III, I got a spark, a little shock, and that is that. The DAC will not power up.
I’d love some help if anyone has suggestions. I know the manual says there are no user-replaceable fuses on the unit. Thanks in advance.
