I tried moving it around, and have switched to an optical cable from dacmagic to amp and better analog cables also from dacmagic to amp, and the cut out problems seem to be better, still have that once in a while, mostly on the bypass, will test further to see if I can use a different cable from PC to DacMagic
Have another question regarding sample rates:
Just out of curiosity. I have ripped a piece of music (using iTunes) on mp3, using same bit rate but different sampling rates, on 8, 32, 44, 48
However, when I feed those signals to the DacMagic, the incoming sample rate indicator does not change at all, no matter whether it's 32 or 48, or even 96 (have some other hires music files)
I used both WM11 as well as iTunes and foobar 2000 to play and same result.
just wondering if I have missed anything....... pointers anyone??
