Just received the T1 today... I have it hooked from PC to T1 via usb, then audio out to Audioengine A2. Is the volume knob on the T1 supposed to work with powered loudspeakers? Mine doesn't.
Also, the headphone jack doesn't seem to work.. I plug in my HD650 and it just keeps on playing on the loudspeakers.
Is this a defective unit? Or is there something that I'm not doing right?
I also think I may have received a defective unit. No response back from Massdrop or Aune via email. I understand Massdrop doesn't handle warranties, so not expecting anything back from them, I just wanted to make them aware.
This is very disappointing, if massdrop doesn't take care of us. Massdrop was good about quickly replacing a CMStorm mechanical keyboard when I received one with some wrong keycaps, and I hope they take care of us for this as well...
The volume knob just works with the headphone only
I thought I got a defective unit too, contacted Massdrop and they helped me.
Thanks. I've sent them an email but haven't heard anything in a week. I will ping them again.
No, your unit is not defective.
USB input will put out a fixed volume pre signal via RCA output (to your amp) - this is ALWAYS ON and does not mute. The volume is not adjustable... it's a fixed pre signal.
The RCA output will always be on regardless. There is no muting relay, so if you plug in headphones, the pre output will still be on while playing music into the T1.
Why don't you guys follow the link to the info thread on HeadFi? You'd get much better answers than some of the ones I see here. Google it.
@mikosssorry i didn't see your reply until now. If the RCA ouput will always be on, am I correct in understanding that this DAC/Amp won't switch to/from powered speakers and headphones? I'm pretty new with all this, and I just came from an Audioengine D1, which switched from headphone output and RCA output accordingly.
Currently, I disconnected the RCA output completely, so that it works just with headphones. It's a bit of an inconvenience to reach back to connect the RCA ouput to my speakers every time I want to use my speakers, but maybe I didn't quite understand this device's purpose. I just saw RCA out and headphone jack, and assumed the T1 will automatically switch audio outputs accordingly...
