    Hi all,
    There's something wrong with my DAC. It just suddenly started buzzing loudly when I plug in my head phones. I can still hear audio through it but it's deafened by the loud buzzing.

    I feel like this would be a somewhat simple fix but I know nothing about electronics. Can anyone recommend me somewhere to take it to in Sydney?

    The headphones work fine with the onboard audio and the DAC is a MAverick Audio Tubemagic D1.

    Cheers

    Remove the tube, blow the pins on the noval socket and use a toothbrush gently brush any debris/dust stuck onto the tube pins.
