    Me again with my newbie Tag questions.. :)

    Just reading the AV32R DP manual online (it's my porn until I can get the real thing :D )

    Noticed something which may be of benefit to me.. TAGTronic Sync Link.

    I have only one digital source - my HCPC. From this I play both music (stored lossless, not MP3) and DVDs. I use a Echo Audio MIA 24/96 pro-audio sound card, with a SPDIF connection to the pre-amp.

    The Echo Audio has the ability to sync to an external clock via its SPDIF input.

    Therefore this suggests to me that I can connect the TAGTronic Sync Link output to the SPDIF Input on my Mia, and thus reduce jitter? Is this how it works?

    On the subject, the Mia manual says:
    Your Echo digital audio system can only sync to S/PDIF clock if the
    master device is set to a sample rate between 30kHz and 50kHz. Otherwise you will get noise and/or loss of sync.


    Would this suggest that I will be fine when playing 44khz audio, but will get problems if, for example, I try to play a DTS 24/96 stream?


    Thanks!

    Hi Tom,

    Search the forum again, someone asked this not long back, I think the answer was that the TAG system was excatly that -- a TAG system and not compatible !

    Thanks bushy, I should've searched first!

    I am still not sure I have the answer tho. I have found a recent post where someone asked exactly the same question as me, but there's no conclusion to it, just some people going to try it out.

    However I have found other posts where the Sync is clearly referred to as an analogue signal; this immediately implies it wouldn't be compatible with an SPDIF input on my soundcard.

    Errrrrrrr yes

    I believe that is the case (being analogue that is !)

    It will not be compatible.

    tjobbins.

    It may be wise (should you decide to buy a DP) to do some serious reading and trials with TMREQ as it is not exactly plug-n-play.

    I've already started reading - read through UrbanT's PDF guide, and will tackle the whole TMReq thread next.

    I like a challenge!
