Concerns about adjusting volume control

Youngling Viestejä: 23 Liittymispäivä: 25.12.2011 Viimeisimmät viestit
Hi,

I was reading in the Tech Tips that volume control should only be adjusted by the GLM network to avoid attenuating the digital signal.

I'm planning to use a Meridian processor (AES/EBU outputs) with my 5.1 set up and adjust volume with the Meridian processor.

I'm concerned now that this won't work, or won't be ideal.

Will this work?

Thanks,

LasVegas

Hi,

When you set up your Meridian to adjust the digital audio level in the AES/EBU output your Meridian volume control will work. Meridian is doing a good job with adjusting the volume digitally and most likely you will be very happy with the performance. If you want to absolutely maximize the resolution of audio travelling in the digital audio cable you can still use the Genelec GLM volume control and leave the digital audio output from the Meridian to an unattenuated setting.

I'm moving on to a different system. I really wanted to use a Genelec DSP system with AutoCal. It's unfortunate but I would clearly be making a compromise by moving forward with this system.

Thanks for this forum and for all of the advice and knowledge I have gained here.
