oldson: am i right in thinking coax spdif tops out at 24/192? Nov 23, 2014 20:35:50 GMT
solderdude: yes Nov 24, 2014 8:18:09 GMT
solderdude: it is a very old standard and originally was intended for 32/44/48kHz only. Later on 96 was added and now 192 is possible. More than 24 bits also isn't possible unless a new protocol is layed out. Nov 24, 2014 8:20:29 GMT
solderdude: Pretty pointless to feed a DAC more than 24 bits anyway as there isn't a DAC in existence that can actually resolve (= accurately translate into) true 24 bits (having an ENOB of 24 bits) due to unavoidable noise levels. Nov 24, 2014 11:31:32 GMT
oldson: thanks Frans. that settled an argument for me! Nov 24, 2014 17:48:21 GMT
