Hello,

I wonder what is the best way to control the volume of a 3 way stereo system with 4 PWR-ICE 250 when using a full digital link from audio source to the PWR-ICE ? Is there a way to use the digital control volume of the Music player (i am using PureMusic on iMac) without loss of sound definition and dynamic ?
I wonder if it's possible to daisy chain the 4 PWR-ICE with an AES/EBU link as shown in my plan ?


Best regards

Nice setup! Based on the fact that each amp can indeed "select" between L or R channel of the AES_EBU feed, it's indeed possible to do this configuration. no problem at all.

For the volume control, do it at the source. It will be the easiest to keep all plate amp in sync. No worries since you're all in digital domain (no ADC- conversion).

I am planning to build an active 4 way speaker (very similar as the config above). I would like to use digital inputs (mainly optical/spdif) and I am looking for a remote master volume control solution. Does Minidsp have a solution for this?

Unfortunately we don't have a master volume solution for master volume control... the nanoDIGI could do it with say an IR remote but it's a bit redundant ... (2 DSP). www.minidsp.com/products/minidsp-in-a-box/nanodigi-2x8-b
