SHD analog input ADC? 2 months 4 hours ago #51983

Is Dirac Live only for the digital domain? I.E. if I connect to the analog inputs the SHD will do ADC before Dirac correction? Also, do the analog inputs take input directly from a turntable or from a phono preamp?

Thanks in advance,
Aaron

From page 43 of the SHD manual:



Although not shown on the diagram, ADC on the analog will be done prior to Dirac. Analog inputs can take input directly from a phono preamp. There have been discussions about doing RIAA curve in the digital domain, but the consensus is that a phono preamp is more suited for this function. I run my Avid Pulsus Phono Preamp into the SHD and have been very satisfied with the results.
