  1. Wanted HDMI Switch with SPDIF Out

    System Setup and Connection
    Well my pre-amp is pre-HDMI and I can't justify upgrading it. I'm looking to use a simple Apple TV or Raspberry Pi-3 as a media stream device replacing my bulky HTPC. Unfortunately digital audio is only out over HDMI. So I'm looking for recommendations on a 4x1 or 4x2 HDMI switch with optical...

  3. "Pop" at beginning of sweep when using SPDIF

    REW Forum
    I have been using the SPDIF out on my Roland Quad Capture with REW. I get a "pop" noise as the sweep begins. Does this matter? I have presumed that if I start the sweep at a sufficiently low Hz (i.e. 5Hz) then the troublesome noise will be gone by the time the sweep gets to the frequency range...
  4. Spdif To Toslink

    I have a Changhong HDTV which has an Spdif connection on the back. My other component is a Yamaha Home Theater System which has a Toslink Connector on the back. My question is, How do i connect these two components together? I already have a Toslink Cable, what other equipment do I require? i.e...
  5. Question on SPDIF or Toslink to 3.5mm Adapter

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have a Cambridge Soundwork id100 which comes with a Toslink out, SPDIF out, and a proprietary Camrbidge out. I was hoping to connect this to the input on my Bose Wave Radio, which I believe only has a 3.5mm Aux in. I am wondering if this can be done with a wire. The Bose must have a DAC in...

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    For some reason, I'm not getting any sub output from my HTPC using anything but 7MC. Is anyone else having this issue? I have a Diamond DDL sound card but I've checked all the settings.

  8. Using sound card's SPDIF out

    REW Forum
    My main audio/video is an HTPC which has an SPDIF out. Is there any way to use the SPDIF out with REW? It might seem to be possible but then how do I calibrate the sound card? Can I do the following for sound card calibration?: Sound card SPDIF out -> AVR -> AVR pre-outs L or R -> Sound card...
  9. Pre-Pro Digital Out De-Emphasis Filtered?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have been struggling with the digital output from my Sherbourn P-7010A Preamp/Processor, which appears to be imposing a de-emphasis filter of some kind on my source. This happens regardless of whether the source is digital in, or analog (the Sherbourn has a nice A/D for analog sources...
  10. Another connection question - M-audio 410 & SPDIF

    REW Forum
    I've seen the diagram regarding connecting "R" output to processor and "R" input to RS meter. I have a m-audio 410 sound card, so I have an rca input, but I am using the spdif out connection for all the sound from the htpc. ie. everthing is sent to the processor via my single spdif connection...
