Ακόμα κι αν το D90SE είχε αυτή την ψηφιακή έξοδο, η χρήση του θα σήμαινε ότι το DAC στα ηχεία θα έκανε τη δουλειά, καθιστώντας το D90SE εντελώς άσκοπο.

Ο καλύτερος τρόπος είναι αυτό που πρότεινα: D90> XLR> A30 Pro> TRS to XLR> 7350> XLR> 8330. Το D90SE θα χειριστεί τον έλεγχο έντασης.
Το A90 παράγει έξοδο XLR ;;; D90 SE> XLR έως A90> XLR σε Genelec.

Even if the D90SE had that digital output, using it would mean the DAC in the speakers would be doing the work, rendering the D90SE completely pointless.
Genelec 8330 is a DSP speaker, so the analog input goes through ADC. So using the digital inputs avoids unnecessary conversion.

That I didn't know. I only did a quick search to find the ports available.

Not too sure what you're asking, but why are you talking about the A90 now?

I’ve two pairs of 8330A and one 7360A subwoofer that I’ve connected using the analogue inputs. Sounds great and I’m not convinced that using digital input will improve the sound.

My system with subwoofer uses RME ADI-2 DAC FS while my wife uses a Rode AI-1 that is an audio interface. Earlier I used a Motu M2 as DAC for and headphone amp, and when I bought the ADI-2 the M2 was then only used for mic duties. Now the M2 is replaced for mic duties with a RME UCX II for the features and connectivity it has over the M2.

The major difference among the DACs in sound quality comes down to features and DSP in that I use the Dynamic Loudness feature of the ADI-2, which I like very much. The bass/treble tone controls are handy as well on occasion. I don't use PEQ for the monitors as they are calibrated but I use them on my headphones.

The GLM Kit makes a huge improvement in sound quality when used for room calibration as well as integrating the subwoofer. The kit is around 350 Euro and is very much worth the money.

Genelecs probably have internal ADCs and DACs good enough to achieve their published specs with all inputs, so there wouldn't be an audible difference.
