Default bypass ad converter in dbx

hi all im using a meridian 588-24 cd into a dbx260 and i would like to know if its possible to wire the meridian using the digital out into the dbx and bypass the a to d converter in the dbx.i feel this would be much better for sound quality as the dac in the meridian would be way better than the converter in the dbx
i would greatly appreciate any help or ideas cheers

Possible but not without a lot of work.You would need to know the internal sample rate of the dbx260, the a/d chip and its master clock frequency and where it is generated. And there is more after that.

It would be better, in theory at least, to avoid a D/A - A/D cycle by using the digital connection between the Meridian and the dbx. Upgrading the A/D would call for as much if not more work than adding some form of digital input.

Best of luck, but don't hold your breath. The dbx is used by very few 'philes especially as the DCX is cheaper and uses more generic components (I believe dbx use their own design ADC) and so is easier to modify.

The basics are fairly straightforward but few would try it without a schematic or service manual.
