Hello Lead Audio,
I bought a LA-100 last Saturday, and i am very pleased with the sound.
I am quite surprised about the good sound quality, when using the USB input. Have you done something special to make it sound this good? Galvanically isolation, jitter reduction, or something else?
I have a Musical Fidelity V-Link to kill jitter through coax or toslink. At the moment i am undecided which connection i prefer, but i am leaning towards the "simple is better" USB, without passing through the V-Link.
Yes, i know i should listen and decide for myself, but do you have a suggestion, which connection is preferable?
Hi "LA fan"
Personally i like the USB, and that is my preferred connection. It is the most direct way, when samplerate is 44.1 or 48khz (and that is most common format). If you are playing 96 use coax or optical, if it is 192 then use the coax.
One of the reason for the very good sound quality is the sample rate converter. This is removing all jitter from the signal, and if it 44.1 or 48kHz then it will only be removing jitter.
We like the optical ,because it will isolate the computer completely from you audio. We are not isolating the USB(or Coax).
But all signals will have jitter removed (so you don't need your V-link).
Thanks for your reply Søren Mac Larsen.
I have another question for you, if you don`t mind. I found this picture of the internals of LA-100 (nice) http://www.erji.net/attachment/Mon_1011/130_296645_857e7100a666c2d.jpg
It shows two circuits in sockets. Are they a possible future upgrade path?
