The map is for me thé biggest evolution brought bye the versio 2.0. Personnalité I use thé map1. Concerning the clock, a significant evolution would be a scarlatti or better the vivaldi. And then add a 10mhz clock, it will be night and day...

Anyone here use a Rossini with a DISH Network box?

When I connect it to my Mac, it sees the digital PCM signal as 16/48.

My Rossini says it’s 17/48.

Update:

dCS says that’s perfectly OK:

Quote:
The likelihood is that the network dish box is actually outputting 17 bits. This is possible as SPDIF audio always transmits 24 bits for the audio signal. Sending a lower bit-depth signal with SPDIF means some of these bits simply won’t be used. The box is likely indicating 16-bit audio as the standard indicators for SPDIF are 16/20/24 bit.

Lots of products rely on the embedded information in SPDIF to determine sample rate and bit depth. A dCS product does this in a different way. It determines the bit depth by counting the active bits in the audio signal.

We do not look at the status bits to tell us what bit-depth the audio is, as this is often incorrect. Instead, we count the bits in the audio signal which actively toggle. Therefore, if the network dish box is outputting an SPDIF signal which has 17 audio bits toggling, it will report a 17-bit signal.

That is an interesting detail! Thanks for sharing.

Definitive info such as this is a big part of why AA is such a great resource.
