Topic: Brand new ADI-2 with shrill distortion?
Hi guys... I first purchased an ADI-2 when they originally hit the market in 2019, but due to that endless search for audio nirvana, I sold it and ventured elsewhere. That was until a HiFi show discount and demo with decent headphones last weekend swayed me again and I'm really happy to back in the RME fold...
However... I have an issue for which I need your esteemed help:
Win10 Korus Server fitted with Matrix Audio Element H USB3 Interface which is externally powered by an IfI PSU
jRiver Media Player v28
1m Furutech GT2 USB cable from the server to the DAC
Chord XLR cables from the balanced out to an Accuphase E306 Amp
Internally and externally stored flac 16/44 files and above
Excuse the poor quality, but here is an externally grabbed recording, in which, what I can only describe as a shrill distortion appears. The audio file I'm playing is a .dff rip of an SACD. I've played lower res files too but the noise gets shorter and gradually disappears into the background, although it can still be heard...
The noise in question can be heard at 3 and 32 seconds:
So... any ideas as to the source of this noise and suggestions to stop it?
Many thanks in advance
