Updating ADC/DACs? worth it or no?
« on: November 27, 2006, 02:38:06 PM »
Originals: AK5383, AK4393

New: AK5394, AK4395

Worth changing?

AKM claims much improved specs over the original parts but I have yet to find the justification on paper.

Discuss.

Frontend first, then the ADC...

as an old audio guru once told me... you can't clean up a turd.

This is in an MX-2424, the frontend is opa2604s from the factory..

Guess you should tell TI that I need to polish their turds into diamonds..  :green:  :green:  :green:

Actually a lot of people think the analog I/O of this box is better than the digidesign stuff.  Who knows but I find it lacking in detail of the mids.  I was thinking of trying some of my signetics 5532s on a couple channels to see what happens.

The original ADC specs leave much to be desired.  The newer ones seem much better.  Not sure they are worth 20$ a piece to give them a try.
