Topic: Use of flagship converters and monitors with his own DSP and DACS
Happy new year.
I’m wandering if the use of a sophisticated DAC like ADI-2 PRO and monitors with onboard DSP (and then DAC), have sense.
In my particular case the Genelec 8320, purchased prior the ADI-2) have no AES inputs but are governable via GLM software, so I guess they have an internal DAC, but without the possibility of avoid the double conversion D-A-D-A, since there is not a digital input.
All this kind of monitors seems to reach their best performance when connected via AES.
Also the manufacturers suggest to use this kind of connection.
However the double conversion bugs me.
