It's really simple: the ADC has its own clock that it uses to sample the data. That data is then fed with that sample rate to the DSP using SPDIF. The SPDIF carries the ADC clock to the receiver.I read this often here but still struggle to understand it. Anyone care to explain or link to where it is explained? Thanks a lot!
The DSP itself has its own clock that it works on. So to make this work with the ADC data, you'll need to asynchronously resample the ADC data to the DSP clock. From the DSP clock you can basically directly clock the DAC's over SPDIF.
