Background info: I plan to use the Dutch&Dutch 8c active speaker and would like to use their AES digital input.

Some question from me:
1. is the digital output of the SHD (non-Studio version) volume adjustable?
2. If the volume is adjustable I guess this is done on the digital domain, what resolution (24 Bit, 32Bit) is used and from what point do I need to expect signal quality to decrease?
3.the digi out is SPDIF, can I connect this to an AES3 input (using this adapter cable)?

Thanks for replay
(Btw, using the SHD in my current setup with KH310 speaker is really fun. Thanks for this product)

Excellent choice of the loadspeaker.

The cable is a correct one, because it also does the impedance "conversion" 110 - 75 ohm

Speaker not finally decided ... quite a significant budget...

the major question is, can I control the volume of the digi out of the SHD?

Hey .. just to further add to this topic,

Can the volume control simultaneously adjust both digital and analog outputs?

My use case is to run the digital outs into a digital active speaker - and the analog output into a sub - thus the need to use both digital and analog outputs at the same time .. and of course use dirac!

Kind regards,

Ash

Indeed, both digital and analog outputs are controlled by the master volume control.
