Excellent! Do you have a multimeter, and a way to do blind switching? Those output levels have to be matched spot on.
No multimeter but audio decibel meter....I try to match with that.......my friend will change the xlr cables between the dacs then i guess which is which.......i dont have switching box nor wanna use one in fear of fucking up the signal path.........btw. when I said old rme adi 2....its not from last year.....its from 2004....first adi they made..

When they arrive just plug in decent headphones if you have some and listen to some good recording songs, please. I know measurements are important. However, how great a unit sounds vital "at least" for me. Thanks.
I don't have high end headphones.....I have dt 770, akg k702, senheiser hd-25 and o2 headamp....let's see.....or should I say hear

Then switch, and have him listen. Should be interesting.

I don’t know. I guess I can’t open it to keep warranty.
@AudioSceptic was probably referring to the fuse that's available within the UK-type male plug, but it looks you have a different type of plug.
