Tips for connecting multiple digital sources

Youngling Viestejä: 2 Liittymispäivä: 5.8.2014 Viimeisimmät viestit
i would like to run an all digital home hifi setup with genelec.
what would you recommend, to be able to connect multiple digital sources to the aes/ebu connected monitors?
the sources:
- tv (optical)
- apple tv (optical)
- macbook (optical or usb)
- maybe more digital sources in the future
i have found the rega DAC to be a contender, as it ouputs the selected input also digitally.
on the other hand, i don't need D/A conversion and would prefer an AES/EBU out.
do you guys know of a product that let's you connect and select multiple digital sources and have them routed to an AES/EBU output?

In the meantime, I found out a few things:

1.) You can use a Cambridge 851c CD Player - It has multiple digital Inputs, and those Inputs are available at the digital output. Attention: This is not the Case with other Brands! Simaudio's Moon Neo 260D and Audiolab's 8200CD only provide a digital output signal for the CD sound.

2.) You can use a Digital Audio Switch that lets you connect several Sources and route them to a digital output. Best finds so far:
- Audio Authority 1177A-1
- RDL HR-DSX4!prettyPhoto

3.) if you need conversion from S/PDIF to AES/EBU, read this:
here's a possible converter:
