View Full Version : SB2 Not Closing SPIDIF signal?

I run the SPIDIF output of my SB2 into a Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista 21 DAC which also takes an optical input from a Rega CD transport. The problem I am having is that even when the SB2 is clearly off, when I run the CD and send an output to the DAC, it remains locked to a signal from the SB2. I have to manually unplug the SB2 in order for the DAC to switch to the signal coming in through the optical input. I am not sure though if this is an SB2 issue or a DAC issue. All I am sure of is that this behaviour was not seen with the SB1?

If you remove the optical lead from the receiver with the SB2 on or off, you'll see the light/led/laser is never powered off, so receiver's that autodetect input still believe the SB2 is the active source.

There's a bug filed on this issue. Please vote for it here. Hopefully it'll be fixed in 6.5
