I'm experimenting with the Node 2i as a transport into an old Arcam Black Box 1 DAC (1980's tech I think), which incorporates a TDA1541A chip.
When tidal plays a masters - the DAC just flips into a nasty hash sound!
What's going on here? I thought if the DAC didn't support MQA it would just play normal 16 bit music.
Obviously this does not seem to be the case here so, is there anything in setting to prevent this old DAC from flipping out when I play a masters track?
