Terrible quality in SDAC mode when any RCA is connected
I also had the channel switch issue. This didn't bother me too much since it is an easy fix (in software or hardware) and they are sending a replacement.
What bothers me is that whenever I plug in something to the RCA port, even when I am using the usb as an input, there is terrible clipping/distortion noise. ex: I can be listening to music from my desktop, sounds nice, go to plug in something to RCA and immediately get clipping.
I'm not sure if this is a related issue to the channel switching. I read that the RCA should be disabled when using DAC but mine is clearly not because it will mix both audio sources together in the output.
Overall, the sound quality is not noticeably better than something from a MacBook, however I am only streaming Spotify and using an HD6xx.
Would not recommend to a friend.
