Hi,

I have aTopping d90 and I want to use with SHD, but I don't know to connect it.

If I use XRL out dac connections to SHD XLR in I listen the music but I'm not sure if I use internal or external dac.
I don't understand the use of Digital outputs. If I connect the dac to SHD with coaxial I don't listen anything

I need help. Thank you! :)

If you are using the XLR outputs from the D90 to the analog XLR inputs on the SHD you are using the DAC in the D90 and the DAC in SHD (as well as an ADC in the SHD).

If you only want to use the DAC in the D90 you need it to be downstream of the SHD by routing the coaxial digital output from SHD to the D90.

What are you trying to accomplish the SHD? How many output channels are you using?

Thank you, Michael,

I connect two coaxial cables in SHD digital outputs but I don't know how to connect to the d90. Two channels.


I want to use SHD as streamer (with Dirac correction) to preamp with DAC Topping D90 and CD transporter. I don't know if it's possible.

The D90 is a stereo DAC (2 channels) and therefore can only accept 1 coaxial digital output (2 channels) from the SHD. See attached picture which shows the routing.

In this configuration you would route your CD transport to a digital input of the SHD and use the SHD to switch between the streamer and the CD transport.

Thank you, Michael. Very instructive.
No difference in use. There is not signal of use one or another dac. I change the source in Topping d90 but nothing changes. I'm not sure which dac is in use... :)
