    Active outdoor speakers

    I have that strange feeling of asking for something which I don't realize makes no real sense. Thoughts appreciated.

    Active outdoor speakers

    Well you're right of course but my thinking was that more often than not an outside yard / patio / etc already has an outside wall plug. In that case, if wifi is good enough I can just strap a Raspberry Pi + DAC hat to the back of the active speakers and call it a day. In this setup, what I like...

    Active outdoor speakers

    Hey there folks. So I've been searching the web for active outdoor speakers without much success. If they are wifi / network speakers that's better yet but that's not needed. I want them to be active so I don't need an extra Amp for the outdoor part of my roon setup. Ideally I'd like...

    Okto dac8 stereo DAC Review

    I just cannot figure out if this Dac (non pro) can implement digital crossover to a pair of subs?

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    Ah, well you are better than me at finding spec sheets then! Thanks. Yeah the noise seems less than optimal on the Swisstronics, for sure. But it's like you say: Vinyl is far from a noise-free source (and in my case it's old vinyls, too...) and of course who's to say the turntable's phono stage...

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    Ah, I missed the Swisstronics. Looks like that's something I could go for. The DIY route seemed appealing but you end up spending 200 bucks (casing included) to end up with something that I think has only a small chance of sounding better to me than this OK-checked Swisstronics. One concern I...

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    Yeah, I considered that, but man do I hate Windows / Mac. And of course, like you say, I am going to need more than a RPi for that. I actually do have a spare PC tower from 10 years ago that can easily run Windows, but it's not like I would want to fit that in between my turntable and my DAC...

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    So it does not work. At least not out of the box. For starters, plugging the turntable in the RPi3 does not alter lsusb's output, so I think the Pi isn't even seeing the turntable - let alone REW in the "input device" scroll down menu from the preferences menu. I've googled "sony ps-hx500...

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    You mean wiring the line-level output of the turntable directly into the Power amp? I don't think that's a good idea, among other things because ... no volume control ? :-)

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    BTW, just to have all my options, does anyone have an informed opinion on the adc in the matrix audio mini i 3?

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    (In case someone Nice. Gotcha. May take me a while to come back to this because of me going on holiday soon but I have an Rpi4 so I will definitely try this. Cheers!

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    Just making sure I get it: you're suggesting using RPi #1 to try and capture the table's USB out with CamillaDSP, and routing that out of another one of that RPi's USB ports, and then using RPi #2 to see if it can "capture" the sound from RPi #1's output ? Or do you mean that within RPi #1 I...

    (BTW this forum is incredible. So much help. Not like I want to call it a day - by all means, keep commenting if relevant - but cheers all of you for the inputs!!!)

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    Ah I see what you mean. Interesting. Damn it I still have no DAC around to try all of this !!!

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    Ah, of course, I forgot that about USB audio. Hmm I'm starting to think that it makes more sense for me to first try the Camilla-hack with the turntable's USB out, since it requires no purchase to (potentially) work (because I have spare RPis). Seems more elegant to me too, in some way. If...

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    Damn it, you're right. Didn't think of this - and I am ashamed of myself there, I have RPi's all around the house lol. This would not solve the fact that, even if it works, I would still be getting USB out of that camilla-RPi, so that I would need a DAC with two USB inputs (recall Roon is...

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    I see. Well if you're right that means I need a DAC with two USB inputs I guess. I'm still confused as to why I need an RPi in my setup anyway (assuming my turntable is close to the DAC). Whatever "cheap but good" ADC I get (thanks for the suggestions) will be USB out, and in your chain you say...

    DAC + ADC as input selector for digital source and turntable: a conundrum?

    Yes, but unusable the way I want (as per my understanding, please correct me if I am wrong). So the USB output of the PS-HX500 is meant exclusively for use with some specific software running on a PC which will help you rip vinyls. That's it, it's not a digital USB audio out. Not that I know at...
