turtle,

but Audigy (1 and 2 both) has Firewire out

Not that you can use it for DVD-A digital output (at least not yet) AFAIK.

I knew you meant this, but I needed to clarify so others would not misunderstand it.

regards,
Halcyon

From what I've read, it doesn't relly matter that the audigy 2 disables spdif out when playing dvd audio, as spdif doesn't have the bandwidth to do dvd-a anyway
From what I know, S/PDIF does not limit what you send through it. It is always possible to send raw audio data through it. The cable does not care what information it delivers. Then it is another thing if there are receivers capable of decoding the signal. An expensive DAC is needed

Have to correct myself a bit.

The original S/PDIF standard states:

Audio format : linear 16 bit default, up to 24 bit expandable
Allowed sampling frequencies (Fs) of the audio:
44.1kHz from CD
48 kHz from DAT
32 kHz from DSR

Now manufacturers are already using 24 bit 96 kHz without problems, because there are no limitations in the S/PDIF interface for higher sampling frequencies. I don't see why not 192 kHz could be used. It is just a matter of higher bitrates and getting the right chips.

Note that the professional balanced AES/EBU interface can not without problem use 24 bit, because it uses some bits for other information. This is not the problem with the consumer S/PDIF interface.

Johan:

Are the higher bitrates part of an amended spec?

The bit format might be able to carry the non-spec information, but does the bandwidth of the connection itself allow that? (I don't know, I'm asking). With the amount of data you're talking about, it's a lot of bandwidth.

AFAIK there are no 192kHz SP/DIF recievers.

No, I don't really know. Of course it is out of the original spec to run for instance 96 kHz, but that is exactly what a lot of PC sound card manufacturers are allowing.

I don't know any of this stuff really but what is the Sanyo receivers we read about (check LC89055W):

http://www.semic.sanyo.co.jp/solution/vrs/vrs_dir_e.htm

Or (CS8416):

http://www.cirrus.com/design/product...ail.cfm?d=1005

Aren't those 192 kHz SPDIF receivers?

Hi,

My M-audio superdac works pretty well at 24bit/96khz connected to an Audiophile 2496 pc card with standard 75 ohm 5 mm CATV coax. As far as I now all M-Audio stuff uses native sample rates, no resampling at all. Only standard oversampling.

But why do you want 192kHz? There are no standard software carriers for it except your harddisc.

What do you mean with "standard software carriers"? DVD-Audio is a standard and it supports 192kHz.
