View Full Discussion I.... guess I'm really lucky, because I didn't have any issues... well I mean none that would utterly fry my earphones anyway. Which is good, because I didn't test the outputs before I plugged my Beyerdynamic T1's in....... IT WOULD HAVE BEEN REALLY FUNNY IF THEY GOT FRIED, RIGHT?! Would have been like this prank:
Anyway, I have a question regarding noise. When I have nothing playing, with these things hooked into my computer, and I turn the knob up past... eh, say 90-95%+ of the way up, I hear static (it happens just slightly earlier if I press the gain button). It's pretty much inaudible until this point, and I know this is well beyond normal listening volume even for my T1's. I usually keep the knob at like maybe the second or third notch up, so that's pretty much 180 degrees away from my comfortable listening volume. But still, is this a defect and could it effect other aspects of the amplifier (ie noise that shouldn't be there in songs)?
Hi man, I'm having axactly the same problem, you can check my posts on the previous page and I still did not fix it. I got my AKG Q701 from massdrop this week, and I need to turn the knob higher or even press the gain button, So i'm noticing more the hum. please let me know If you find way to fix this. If not I'll contact the Mayflower support: https://www.mayflowerelectronics.com/contact-us/
hi man, It's me again, I just got an answer from the Mayflower support, they were very fast for answering, really great! :
Make sure that the bit rate and frequency are set at 24/96. Also try a different USB cable, sometimes we get bad ones.
I tried the cable option but it did not work, but with the 24 bits , 96 000 Hz parameter selected and applied, the static noise was totaly gone!! I'm really happy now.
Thanks Tyler again!
Thanks a lot for this info, yeah the 24/96 option totally fixed it for me. I think it sounds better, too. For anyone else that has the issue, I dunno if this is buried in the pages somewhere, but couldn't hurt, in Windows 8 (roughly the same in 7):
- Taskbar, right the sound icon.
- Playback devices
- Right click the amp
- Default format
It's pretty easy to find if you've played with these settings before, but maybe some people don't know.
