Topic: DSD via AES

I use ADI-2Pro with studio monitors Adam-audio S3V, connected via digital AES/EBU. Amazing sound !!!
In the case of DSD input, AES output of ADI is without signal.
DSP performs DSD to PCM conversion, but for level meters only. It this ponversion is good (e.g. 24/176400), the PCM signal could be used for AES output (or not)? It is, of course, a matter of firmware.

Thanks and best regards.


Re: DSD via AES

The conversion is not good enough for audio, and we don't have the computation power to do this in hardware. A capable player software can convert DSD into PCM to use it via AES.

For this conversion i use foo_input_sacd in foobar2000 and ffmpeg in case of network streaming.
