PS: I enjoyed the Node 2i so much that I recently bought the PowerNode 2i for my 2nd system. Connected to my JM Reynaud Twins, it sounds shockingly good.
Sunny, do you use the regular 2i in your main rig or a desktop? How would you compare sound quality versus other sultions you have tried?
I stand corrected. Looks like the bew Node has RCA digital out as well.Does anyone know if this is fixed output or variable? I'm kind of assuming it is fixed.
It's variable. I run it into an outboard DAC (via coax) and use the phone app to adjust volume from my seat.
There's no remote with this correct? Just a phone app. Is it possible to use a universal remote with the Node?
JLM, good to see you back and I largely agree. You can use any music server/bridge you like, you'd just have to use a usb to s/pdif and AES converter. However, s/pdif is not a good method for sending signals with multiple long runs. Pro audio uses AES and like everything else there's likely a box that has 4 AES digital outputs on it. I can't imagine there's a similar s/pdif box, or if there was, that you'd want to use it. Doing the d/a conversion outside the speakers is preferable with say a dac/balanced preamp. That opens the doors to so many more options and better sound quality, imo.
This is a purist approach I lusted after for some time but the primary problem with feeding digital signals to the subwoofers/monitors is the quality of the DAC in the subwoofers/monitors. Have you ever read a review of those DAC's? They are afterthoughts at best and each subwoofer/monitor would use it's own unmatched DAC. Plus there is no way of volume matching or remote control. You're in the studio world.
