Hey audiophiles, I need to know something I've been meaning ask for some time now. A few months ago I received the DACport Slim from Massdrop. I connected it to my workstation using a long a** cable, plugged in my M50x and opened a Rick and Morty episode. It worked flawlessly and has been working without a hiccup all this time (knock on wood).
There is only one single problem, this little guy gets pretty warm even when it's not being used (just connected through USB). I've been unplugging the DACport slim every night since I run my workstation 24/7, and I'm worried about leaving the DAC/amp 24/7 in its warm state.
Why I'm asking this is because I feel I'm wearing out the USB connection on the Slim unnecessarily. So the question is, is it normal that the Slim runs warm and is it ok to leave it plugged in to the computer 24/7?
