I'm moving a Trinnov discussion in the ADA thread to here where it's more appropriate, starting from here http://www.avsforum.com/t/1196455/ada-mach-4-wow/1950_50#post_22457094
Curt emailed me the following:
Canare 6Mhz SPDIF adaptor only good for 48/24 (6Mhz is the bandwidth consumed
by 48/24). SPDIF > AES impedance mis-match (75>110) is not an issue at
very short runs, below transmission line lengths where reflections become
important (again, a function of bandwidth).
The Trinnov units do have many choices for remapping, including 5.1, 7.1,
6.1, 3/4 SMPTE, 5/2 SDDS, 8 channels, 3/6 SMPTE, 12 channels. New formats
(based on actual input channels) will be added as they become popular. As
an example, 11.2 is straightforward for us to add, but generally, we will
not be providing a format based on a third party's arbitrary upmix. Our
decision to do a mapping is based on applicability and customer demand.
That said, in some cases, customers pay for us to develop remapping for
I've done some programming of mapping during a HT install, so there are a
lot of ways to get it done."
Curt, to what speaker locations will Trinnov remap using the 8-ch and 12-ch formats?
