    Default Mac Dac again , HELP !!!!!!!!!



    Not used my DAC 3 for some months as i prefer vinyl

    Pluged it in and no sound output ?

    I have Amazon Prime music playing through my internal mac speakers , When I click on the sound icon top right I get the drop dow option of " Internal of TDA 1543 AC 3 V 1.4 , click on that and no sound out of my hifi

    I have the usb lead going out of a usb port ( Tried it from all 4 ports ) into the DAC then out of the dac RCA's into the AUX of my pre amp , Pre amp switched to AUX and no sound , No frequency light showing on the DAC

    its like no signal is coming out of my MAC , do I need to do something else within my mac config to get the bloody thing working

    HELP


    This is why I love vinyl

    Default DAC 3

    Have you given the DAC 3 time to charge up its batteries? When mine gets low it just cuts out into silence.

    Didn’t someone else here have problems with their Mac and DAC, similar issue you describe. Can’t remember the poster or the thread, but it wasn’t long ago. I think thry sorted it.

    In that case I think you are just cursed when it comes to Macs and DACs

    Is it the starting point dac or something else.

    I have one of the older ones that had been sitting for ages-replaced the rechargeable battery with a new one and it was right a rain.

    The only other thing could be the mac is not set to output via usb.....does it have an optical you could try( a lot of macs have an optical in the headphone socket)
