Alright, i hooked up my new DAC today, and the right channel is outputting nothing but garbled crap.
It's an Audio Alchemy DDE V1.1.
Is this even worth trying to fix? It's definitely in the output stage of the dac, i've swapped the ICs, and the garbled channel follows the cable. System sounds perfect with the DAC out of the loop.
Am i wrong in thinking that the optical cable can't possibly have anything to do with it since the left output on the DAC is working properly?
Any ideas or suggestions? I'd like to fix it, but i'm pretty sure it's going to be far beyond what i'm capable of, and i doubt there's a huge customer service support for this unit considering it's 16 years old and the company is out of business. I can't even seem to find an active link for the schematic.
