Using coax input to audio alchemy ddp1
Description Of Issue
Just got a this very good DAC/pre-amp. When playing through Roon with Digione as an end point to feed the Audio Alchemy coax input I hear a short out of sync click from the Audio Alchemy.
Any idea how to try to solve this?
With my Hegel H90 there is no problem. I tried both coax input without any luck…
Have you tried adding Resync Delay under Device Settings?
From the Knowledge Base:
This setting is primarily used when an S/PDIF, AES, or I2S connection is involved. Oftentimes, a DAC will take a little bit of time to lock onto a new audio signal–sometimes as long as a few seconds.
This setting causes Roon to play a configurable duration of silence whenever it begins a new stream. Like the last setting, this one is a problem solver. If you find that the beginnings of songs are being cut off, or you’re getting a lot of clicks and pops while your DAC locks on to an S/PDIF signal at the start of playback, try increasing this setting. 500ms is a good starting point. If that doesn’t work, try gradually increasing it from there.
We default this to a very small value because it produces delays in Roon’s user experience. Consider that when setting it up–unless you have an uncommonly slow DAC, settings longer than 1-2 seconds are probably not necessary.
I tried to play with this a little, but the problem is not in the start of every song, but in the middle…
Is there any pattern to types of media affected by this issue? Does this only occur with high-resolution content? Specific file formats?
If you plug in the Audio Alchemy to the Core via USB, temporarily bypassing the Digione, does it display the same behavior?
I don’t see any pattern. It occurs with every types of files and resolution and the pattern is random.
I tried to plug the as using the USB connection but the ddp-1 isn’t recognize by the computer.
Can you please share a screenshot of your
Roon Settings -> Audio tab with the DDP1 plugged in via USB? This screen should look similar to the following:
Have you made sure to install the Audio Alchemy driver? Instructions on how to do so can be found on the DDP-1 Manual, linked here on page 7. I would also make sure that you have the USB input selected on the DAC itself.
Tried to do both, but I couldn’t install the driver because it says that the device is not connected.
I would try a different USB cable. If you are unable to install the driver outside of Roon, this could indicate a communications issue between your PC and the DAC.
