Audiolab 6000N - anyone know how to select the DAC filter?


Novice Member
Hi everyone, first post here. I just noticed (after a year...) that the Audiolab 6000N streamer (which runs into the DAC of my 6000A amplifier) also has an analogue out - so it must have a DAC itself. Hooked that up to an AUX entry in the 6000A and indeed, works. The sound is different though, even if some reading teaches me that the 6000N uses the same ESS Sabre DAC as the 6000A.

Of course there's more to D/A conversion than the DAC itself, but one thing intrigues me: in in the 6000A you can select the DAC filter - "fast", "slow" or "phase" ("slow" sounding best to my ears and in my system - Audiolab 8300MB's feeding Sonus Faber EA2's). Anyone know if you can do the same for the DAC in the 6000N?
