How to Connect the Deckard
If you’re using the Deckard in digital input mode, connect its USB input to your computer or other USB-equipped source and ensure the input switch on the front panel is set to “USB”. In the event you want to use the Deckard in analog mode, you can connect the source to the left and right RCA analog inputs and change the input switch on the front panel to “RCA”. To use the Deckard as a system preamplifier use the pair of left and right RCA outputs on the rear panel labeled “OUTPUT”; just add powered speakers and you’ve got a desktop audio system ready to go.
The internal DAC has impressive specifications that plays 16 to 32-bit audio and sampling rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz on Mac OS 10.6.4 and above. Windows computers are system limited to 192kHz and 24-bits. The front-panel gain switch chooses between three gain settings and we recommend starting at the uppermost position labeled Mid with Audeze headphones; other brands may require changing the gain.
There’s a volume control and there are front-panel switches that allow you to choose gain and input so you can also use the Deckard as a great line-level preamp. It supports the following AC Inputs: AC100V: 90V-110V; AC110V:100V-120V (Factory Default); and AC230V: 210V-230V.
