Default I need 2496 AES EBU PC source

Hi,
I'm currently feeding 1648 from a USB/SPDIF converter (modified with an output digital trans) to convert its SPDIF output to AES/EBU feeding into a DEQ2496 and then DCX2496 into an actively driven 3 way open baffles.
My PC source uses Foobar2000 which is capable to upsample to 2496.
I've been searching for an affordable way to get a 2496 source, but it seems all USB/SPDIF converters that I come across in the market right now does not support that.
Soundcards wise, there are M-audio and E-mu but it seems it would need an adaptor cable to interface with my AES/EBU cable.

I would really like to have a gadget (either USB/SPDIF or a Soundcard) that is capable of 2496 and sports AES/EBU output socket readily. Do you have any links?

cheers.

I'm using Emu 0404 and Behringer 8024. I feed it from 'spdif out' (RCA) directly to the equalizer (XLR), with a self-made cable.

Given that the computer uses 44.1khz signal, why not let the Behringer sort the rest out?

(use Kernel streaming obviously, in Foobar)

Hi Niels,

Probably OT, but: I am trying to get my 0404 accept S/PDIF at the digital coax input, but without success. Have you tried that? If so, did it work?

Sorry, haven't tried it. When I couldn't get my DAC to work, I thought about trying that, but I got it working.

Hi Niels,
The DEQ2496 does not upsample 44.1khZ, hence if there's a simpler solution to get 2496 out of the PC will be great.


cheers.

The DEQ2496 manual says it takes 44.1 through 96khz. I don't understand what needs to be upsampled.

That means the DEQ is capable of taking in up to 96khz. But if the DEQ is fed with 44.1khz from the source it stays at 44.1khz. It will not automatically upsample a 16 bit 44.1khz information to a 24bit 96khz information.

cheers.

I know that (although it does work internally at something higher than 16bit/44.1 iirc).

That doesn't answer my question though. Why do you want to or need to upsample?

I like the way those latest generation upsampling CD players do to the sound of piano. They sound more real, the hammer strikes the string much more realistically. Overall solidity of the presentation is higher compared to standard redbook cd.
