Hi all,

My 2x4 HD arrived and it is a perfect fit in my system. See photo. (I got free U.S. shipping and great service from Madisound: www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/ )

Questions:
-The unit gets hot - is that normal? How do you avoid that?
-Do I need to power off the unit off before connecting or disconnecting the USB-computer link?
-How do I route analog inputs to USB output so I can record vinyl LPs onto my computer?

Thanks

A-NYC

I have not noticed any heat issues with my 2x4. None of the components on the PCB have heat sinks and there are no ventilation holes in the enclosure so I'd say it isn't an issue.

I always make the connections to my PC before I power up the 2x4

I'm not sure if an analog output on the 2x4's USB port is even possible.

Thanks Stephan300. I want to do digital out from the DSP into my laptop carrying signal from my turntable.

Couldn't you just run your TT and RIAA preamp into your computer using a DAW program?
