CA DacMagic slow power on


Standard Member
I've just started noticing my nearly 12-month old DacMagic is slow to power on. Maybe it's always been like this and I've never noticed until now.

Anyway, I've timed it multiple times this evening and find it takes anywhere between 3.5 and 4 seconds between pressing in the power button and the blue lights coming on.

Can anyone confirm it this is the same with their DacMagic? Or is mine starting to play up?

Many thanks, Chris.

Can confirm there is a delay before "lights on", mine is only a month old or so and does exactly the same as yours.

Correct. There is a delay of 3.5 - 4 seconds between pressing the on button and the lights coming on.

If yours is the same then I guess it must be normal then.
