McIntosh D1100 Digital Preamplifier DAC Review

“The issue boils down to the fact that the DAC chip is normally muted until it receives non-silence data. But, this non-silence data can’t be just any non-silence data, it must be at a minimum volume level for the DAC to unmute. When the track reaches a certain volume level, the DAC unmutes and quickly fades-in to the music. In other words, the fade-in is triggered by a minimum amplitude, not by the start of a stream of USB data. Many DACs use a similar mute technique to reduce or eliminate pops on sample rate switches, but this is the only DAC I’ve seen that requires a minimum amplitude to unmute the volume.”
