I'm completely new to the Node 2i, which is attached to my LAN. I use an external DAC (music hall) which is connected to the Node either by optical oder Coax connection. Everything is working fine, but...
Even when the Node should be in sleep or standby mode, my DAC keeps in "on" mode. Before trying the Node, I used the Teufel/Raumfeld Connector (a product similar to the Node), and in connection with this Connector my DAC will fall into standby as soon as the streaming is stopped.
Why is this a problem? The music hall DAC has a tube within the output circuit. When streaming stops, after a while also my (Advance Acoustics) amp will switch off automatically. When the DAC is "on" and the amp is off, the DAC tube will heat up extremely. So I need a solution where the DAC is allowed to fall back into standby when streaming stops.
I read the topic here about power consumption of the Node - could it be the same issue in the end?
