Thanks Ted, very informative.
More likely to make a change at the source end than the dac if I need to.
Disconnecting pin 18 on the cable linking source and dac would do it?
(If its academic, in that the issue only occurs when the dac is powered off then I’ll leave as is)
I keep my dac powered on all the time Ted, so the circumstances that enable this doesn’t ever occur.
(Aside the very rare time I switch it off)
Playing music normally with the dac on, do I still “lost the i2s theoretical advantages” or is it academic?
i2s sounds noticably better than coaxial connection in my system.
Just trying to understand better
