RE: Volume output increased on DS on it's own!
Eamonn I'd guess he's comparing it to the other non-DS sources he's got on his preamp. Just a thought.

KlimaxDS / LP12 / KlimaxK / Klimax350A
SneakyDS / Komp104 / Akurate226

Your saying the volume is about 6db louder.
6db louder than what? 6db louder than it was the night before?
how can you measure this?

*******Answer- like using balanced interconnects*****

Unless you have something to compare it with how can you establish that it is louder.

*******Answer- Similar to using balanced interconnects with a Unidisk. So this is the comparison.***********


How have you come to the conclusion that your volume is 6db louder than it was the night before ?
As already explainedBig Grin

This is hard work, or is it meBig Grin
OK. I used to have a Unidisk and always used the unbalanced rca's, but one day I tried the Balanced interconnects. All of a sudden out of the blue the volume had increased considerably. Found out that balanced interconnects add an extra connection and this will increase the volume by about 6db louder.

So the problem with the volume increase from the DS is louder by at least 6db. This is the best way to describe it. So the problem is relative to using balanced connections on the said Unidisk and I can compare to this in this regard.

Oh, and you can tell that to the other balhoon too. Smile

Tone.

I've already tried the other inputs on the 5103- no change. Thanks for the suggestion.

Had new computer and forgot password and new password was sent to old no longer used email account. Had to start from scratch. But the other Balhoon knowsBig Grin
