Because of the "all digital" setup I'm planning for my system, I feel that an "all digital" source selection and volume control is required here.
I have ordered 2 X 7360A Genelec subwoofers to go with my 8341A's which, as far as I'm aware, work best with an AES/EBU connection linking them all together.
After looking at all the advice given on this thread, I feel the RME ADI2 pro is the best solution pound for pound.
I'm going to be building a "media wall" in the new year and need a solid and reliable unit to control everything. The RME has a proven track record for setting and forgetting. As a bonus, the harmony remote will pair with the RME very well.
I do realise that feeding the genelecs with an unaltered, line level signal is the ideal approach but I am not in a position to do that. I hate the Genelec volume control as it is purely suited to a professional studio environment. In a home environment, compromises have to be made......
I hope you all.agree
