Analog and digital input with SAM without GLM for audio.

Analog and digital input with SAM without GLM for audio.

I'm using genelec 8341 with a RDL HR-DSX4 digital switch and use  glm volym control with a remote. Today I use a AD conventer (RDL HR-ADC1, 24bit/96kHz) before the switch for the analog sourses. I use the GLM kit to adjust the acoustics and store the settings in the loudspeaker and run the GLM at is own. Is it possible to store 2 calibrations to the loudspeaker locally, both digital and analog (lot of cables)? I'm looking for the possibility to connect my digital sources digitally to the loudspeaker and at the same time also connect analog sources to the analog input. Can the speaker switch between the 2 different connections, depend on what input source is "live" without connection to a computer?

At the beginning I had a Mytek Broklyn DAC+ and used the analog connection to the loudspeakers, but was qurios to use more "clean" connection without to much AD and DA  conversion and resampling. It didn't make a big different, which shows that the loudspeakers electronic is a good design.

For hifi use, a dream preamp would be a box with digital switch (several sources), a decent AD converter (a riaa?) and a volym control that can communicate to GLM from the preamp. But the market is to small for that kind of product?

Yeah, this is a bit arbitrary.
my 8351 won't switch, 1237s do switch automatically.
I severely angered one of my ears not knowing that.
Might depend on firmware.
The new wireless volume remote might be able to do it. Can't find a manual though.

In a standalone mode the speakers can be set to automatic input mode: they willl be play digital signal if present, otherwise analog. You may select this when you store group settings to speakers in GLM software.

You then need to control the volume with wired or wireless controller and have GLM adapter connected to the speakers and to the power source. Other option is to control volume in the source and leave dpeaker volume at full but not many digital sources offer volume controlled digital output.
