Anyone here running the Geek Pulse X DAC with the LPS
« on: September 05, 2020, 11:45:38 AM »
I just obtained a new Geek Pulse X with LPS. If I power it with the LPS, I get no sound out of the DAC. The DAC does power up but no sound output. I am running SPDIF from the digital out of a CD player and analog outputs to my 2A3 preamp.
If I take the LPS out of the equation and just use the wallmart to the DAC. The DAC works fine.
I'm stumped....

  If you are stumped we are. :-P Kidding aside . A grounding issue. I had similar issue just with a different DAC. Had to ground LPS.

Found the problem. As it turns out,  the power strip/filter I had it plugged into wasn't working for it. Plugged the power supply into the wall and all is fine  :duh
