I recently connected a NuWave Phono Converter to my DirectStream DAC. I’ve noticed that when I plug it into I2S2, it sounds rolled off and lifeless, in I2S1 it sounds great the same as it does thru the Analog output. The advanced settings I can see appear to be the same on I2S1 and I2S2. I’m just unplugging the hdmi cable from one input and plugging it into the other. I thought it should sound the same in either. Is there a setting or filter I’m missing. (Not to confuse the issue, but when I do the same with the output from the transport, they sound the same.)
Thanks for any help or ideas.
