Months after building a pair of LxMini speakers and using PWR-ICE125 amps to drive each channel, I am still immensely enjoying the system and the capacity of the dac/dsp/amps to pass through tweaks I have upstream (Gustard U12, and optimisations to W10 via fidelizer) through to the speakers. In fact I wonder why other's haven't proceeded this way. SQ is excellent, and value for money and simplicity are compelling. I think the PWR-ICE125s have also responded well to some tweaks I have done, but that's a story for another day. In fact I am not done on that matter yet.
I have a Gustard U12 providing an AES/EBU signal to the right amp, then digital pass through to the left amp.
Separation between the speakers is about 12-15 feet.
Should I build in some latency on the right amp, because of the pass through arrangement?

thanks

Jay

Hi Jay, I believe the digital link out is just a buffered version of the digital input - it doesn't go through any clocking or resampling or anything. So the delay would be quite minimal.
I am not miniDSP support.

@Jay,

Indeed exactly like John just said. :-) The output is just an electrical zero delay buffer so no need to worry on this.
The electrical latency between the cable is a non issue I think.. You should be fine I'd say. (i.e. physical distance will more be of an issue).
