I have recently raised the height of my Fraim that holds, from top to bottom, 52, NDS, NAT01, Snaxo, 2x135s. This configuration stretches the link from an internet socket to the 52, which delivers the audio signal from my TV.
My options seem to be:
Swap NDS with 52
Use a Toslink(?) from TV to NDS
Are there any other options that I’m forgetting?
I think I used the Toslink before I had the LAN installed, but I can’t recall and I’m not sure connecting it to the NDS is an option.
Any comments, thoughts, options welcome in the spirit of the season.
A Toslink connection to the NDS should be fine, as long as there are no lip-sync problems.
I’m struggling to understand what this connection is from ‘internet socket’ to 52, perhaps you can explain what this involves?
Been to the dentist, voted and pub …
IIRC the LAN module was specific to the set up. Which might explain how an audio out can go via the LAN to the 52. Here are a couple of photos: spaghetti junction behind the TV (RH yellow cable is from the TV, the other cables are from the Apple TV and IR relay) and the output from the TV.
So I’m guessing that the lower photo shows an analogue cable that connects the TV to the preamp? If so, an optical connection from TV to NDS should sound better as you are then using the DAC in the NDS. Set the TV output to stereo PCM, connect it, and you should be all set.
I didn’t have to adjust my Panasonic Vierra. As far as I know tv signals don’t have Dolby, but my Sound Menu has V-Audio and V-Audio Surround which it’s on. Usually the sound from any source going into the tv will be output over the toslink, which is defined as 2 channel PCM audio. It can’t handle anything more.
BTW, just turn the volume on the tv down to almost zero, which doesn’t affect the toslink which you control with the Preamp. If my tv volume is zero it has done funny things on the toslink, but at 1 the tv is inaudible.
