Had my BP50 for a couple of weeks now and it has some odd quirks. First one is that the audio just stops randomly. A power cycle restores it but it will inevitably do it again. Second one is audio can sound quite bad when first powered on. This seems to resolve itself after a short period but I have no idea why it would happen at all. I emailed support and asked them for a potential firmware update but they said there are none currently which is disappointing.
Maybe I got a defective unit but who knows. Does anyone else with the BP50 have a similar experience?
yours is the same as mine
i said in another post this thing fails as a PC dac
i would be hoping the unit works better on BT or rca or optical in.
I’m scared I’m going to wear out the on off switch as I keep having to power cycle it.
I think I’m going to go back to my older more reliable DACs.
Sadly this is basically a B50 with no amps so the issues you see here would also be apparent on the B50 so they havent fix it for ages.
I have the same issue with mine, though I tested the unit with an external DAC and it doesn’t happen. The culprit might be the line driver that has an anti pop circuit that cuts the audio, but due to the poor design they had it cut off too quickly. I’ll investigate the issue but the audio output is really noisy anyway.
That’s too bad. If you find a solution then let me know. Arylic were not helpful at all when I contacted them and I didn’t get much more than “did you plug it in right?.” This is clearly an ongoing problem that they don’t intend to fix. I find the output is noisy for the first couple of minutes and then is ok from then on but the audio cutting out is extremely irritating.
Either way I feel like I have a paperweight.
