    Split two AES3 or S/PDIF channels into separate cables

    If I have one AES3 or S/PDIF signal containing two channels, is there an off-the-shelf solution to split the two channels into two separate signals without converting to analog?

    Sending audio from one computer to another via spdif does not seem to work.

    Swissonic Converter AD 24/192 (ADC) Measurements

    After the recent measurement I did for the unbranded ADC I got off eBay, to compare a friend borrowed me a relatively similar device by a thomann.de house brand - Swissonic Converter AD 24/192 that sells for about 40€: Basic features are mostly the same, except this one comes with a power...

    Confused about the best way to get digital audio into my DAC

    So, I should shortly be receiving a Holo May dac, and i'm a bit confused about some of the things that people have said about it/the spring online.

    Modi 2 vs. Modi 3 | SPDIF vs. USB

    So I got both of these DACs. From a basic A/B test all I notice is the Modi 3 sounds louder than the 2 but overall very similar via USB. However on SPDIF it's louder and also more muffled/bassy/"warm", it sounds extremely different. Could this be an issue with my input? It's a digital output on...
