I just bought a Black Ice Glass FX WiFi DAC and hooked it up to my PWT transport using a digital coax cable (Blue Jeans). When I try to play a CD I get an occasional thump and then it starts getting drop outs. Finally the PWT froze and I had to turn off the power switch to restart it.
I disconnected the coax cable from the PWT and hooked it up to the digital out of my Marantz SA 8005 player and everything works fine. When I had the PWT hooked up to the Black Ice DAC I left the I2S cable hooked up to my PW MkII DAC. Could this be causing a problem? It would be nice to be able to leave both DACs hooked up so I can use either one. This is the first time I have tried to use the PWT as a transport for another DAC.
FWIW, my PWT has been trouble prone from the beginning. It is on its third drive.
Any advice or suggestions will be appreciated.
