8260A : 192k LPCM or Bitstream Source ?

Padawan Posts: 47 Join Date: 5/30/15 Recent Posts
I am looking for the best option to feed my new 8260 with digital signals. Alternativly to a Metric Halo LIO-8 the 8260 will be fed by an Oppo105D supporting both, LPCM (48-192khz) and Bitstream ( to be choosen with the device setup - configuration) .

I´d like to hear from Genelec whats the best dignal signal for the SAM series. Or does it simply not matter at all ?

thank you- looking forward to your answer

I don't think that there is a choice - as far as I know, the Genelecs accept 16-24 Bit, 32-192 kHz PCM.
