  • How to process digital signal?

    In my setup I am concerned with sound quality. I would really like to use the spdif output and process the sound with an external DAC, but I can't find any suitable device. The things that I do find that might work never provide enough enformation. What are the solutions people have used?

    I guess the requirements are:
    1. at least one spdif input
    2. volume control
    3. multi chanel preamp output

    Can anyone suggest a device or way to do this?

    I have really been having a heck of a time with this.

    If this is for use in your car, you're going to find that an external DAC is going to simply be another opportunity for RF to make its way into your signal, and one more power-hungry mouth to feed.

    If you want the best possible balance of cost, energy efficiency, and audio quality, snag a Creative Labs SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum. The Audigy 2s are the first in the Audigy line to provide true 24 bit processing throughout the sound production process, and support 7.1 surround, and are fully THX certified.

    In my opinion, there's no point in complicating your installation any further when the advantages are going to be negligible, if there are any at all!

        people like clarion make digital signal processors ... but you're looking at about $500 just for the DSP.

        if you've got the money go with what MST suggested

          Thanks for the replies.

          In all the time I was looking, the cheapest workable solution I found was the Nakamichi MB-100. Starts at about $600.

          It's actually a in-dash 6 disc cd changer/tuner with an external dac that provides aux analog and digital ins.
