I just received my new PS Audio NuWave DSD DAC and love the sound. USB and Coaxial inputs work great.
Unfortunately I experience an issue with the Optical input, which I have connected to my Samsung TV optical out (which is set to output stereo MPEG, no Dolby or DTS):
For the first few minutes after I start listening to the Optical input, the audio is briefly muted for a fraction of a second. This happens every 5 seconds or so. When the audio stutters the PCM led also flickers briefly off and then on.
After a few minutes the stuttering stops and the audio is played uninterrupted. However, whenever I change channels on my TV the cycle of a few minutes stuttering starts again. Even though I do not use the optical connection for high quality listening (I use USB for that) this is very annoying, since it is the only input option I can use to listen to digital radio and movies from my TV.
Some more info: the optical signal is 48 KHz, 24 bits. This is displayed by the Oppo HA-1 DAC, which plays the same optical connection using the same optical cable without issues (but which I do intend to replace with the NuWave because the NuWave simply sounds better).
Can anyone help we with this? Anyone experiencing similar issues?
