DSP DAC and external converter

Youngling Posts: 14 Join Date: 12/6/14 Recent Posts
When using the 8240s and GML, is an external DAC redundant? I was considering purchasing a high quality external DA for monitoring prior to my interest in the 8240s, though since then have read the speakers do there own DA conversion, and I'd be better off with a digital output from my RME interface. Is this correct? Is there any information on the DAC used in the 8240s?

Hi,

Since all processing inside the speaker is done in digital domain, we highly recommend using digital input signal because that way you can avoid having extra DA and AD conversions being made. Specific information about the DA converters is unfortunately not available.
