I just received an nDAC to use with my ND5 XS and XP5 XS, but no sound out from the nDAC… ND5 XS is plugged into BNC 1 on the nDAC from BNC 1 on the ND5, using a 75-Ohm BNC patch cable. XP5 XS is plugged into the nDAC via Burndy. DIN out on the nDAC is plugged into DIN 1 on NAC 32.5. ‘Sync’ light is not on, pressing the ‘1’ button lights up momentarily, then goes out.
I thought maybe it was set to analogue output on the RCAs, so I used an RCA-to-DIN cable: now, when I switch on the nDAC, the ‘sync’ and ‘hd’ flash intermittently, which suggests that the power supply is incorrectly installed… how can that be if I’m using the Burndy?
Also, if, somehow, the digital out is enabled on the nDAC, how do I set it back to analogue? And is there a method to factory reset the nDAC?
Yes, both link plugs are now installed. Still no sound, ‘sync’ and ‘HD’ still flash on power up.
However, if I insert a USB stick, the ‘1’ button lights and stays on, but I’ve got no idea how to play files from the USB stick. Pressing ’1 / Play’ does nothing, and the nDAC didn’t come with a remote.
I’ve enabled digital out on the ND5 and have the XP5 XS powering the nDAC, but still no sound coming out of the nDAC… ‘sync’ and ‘HD’ still both flash when the DAC is powered up, the ‘sync’ light doesn’t stay on and the ‘1’ button lights up when I press it, but then goes out…
How do I make sure that one or the other of the RCA / DIN analogue outputs is selected?
