AD9200 dynamic range

Hello,


I currently own a pair of 8250's and would like to add a 7260 subwoofer. My monitoring situation requires that I use an analog signal and would therefore need to purchase the AD9200. My question is... the dynamic range of the A to D converter inside the 8250's is 122 dB (information is from the manual) where as the AD9200 has a dynamic range of 110 dB. Why wouldn't Genelec use the same converter with the same specks? Will this be a downgrade in quality?


Thanks

Hello,

Thanks for your question. The dynamic range of the AD9200 and the analog input on the DSP loudspeakers are different because the technology used in the AD9200 is different from the technology inside the DSP loudspeaker AD converter.

The AD9200 will produce optimal results when the input level into AD9200 is driven sufficiently and the volume fader in GLM is set to about -10 to -15 dB.

Best regards
