Topic: Distortion with LCD-X and RME ADI-2 DAC

Hello, I hope someone here can help me. I have an Audeze LCD-X that I use with an RME ADI-2 DAC with the headphone jack, I use Roon Core and Endpoint with Intel NUC, the problem is that I hear distortion at a very low volume. I use the same system with some HifiMan HE400i and it sounds great, without any distortion, I have tried the Audeze LCD-X with the headphone output of a Yamaha A-S1100 stereo amplifier and they also sound good, the headset has no problems, it is new and I concerned that it was damaged, the problem only occurs when I use headphones connected with the RME ADI-2 DAC on the headphones jack.

Ronn Core -> Roon Bridge -> RME ADI-2 DAC -> YAMAHA A-S1100 -> Speakers

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like your ADI-2 DAC is defective then. Send it in for a check...
