TOPIC: Simultaneous Digital RCA and Analogue XLR output

Simultaneous Digital RCA and Analogue XLR output 1 week 1 hour ago #48532

Can the MiniDSP SHD output digital and analogue signals at the same time?

I'd like to send a toslink signal or convert it to aes/ebu to my Genelec 8260 monitors, but then also run XLR cables to subwoofers with an analogue signal.

Is that possible? Can you route any digital or analogue input to any digital or analogue output?

Also, is it only 2 channels from optical or can I pass it surround sound from my TV and do a 5.1 system?

The SHD has 4 output channels and the plugin let's you define what is sent to each of these. These 4 signals are then always sent to the 4 RCA outputs, 4 XLR outputs and two digital outputs (one carries output channels 1 and 2, and the other 3 and 4). So yes you can use the mix of analogue and digital outputs that you described.

You can't pass through a 5.1 signal though - the SHD can only handle 2 input channels.

Note that the SHD digital outputs use RCA connectors.
