I'm running a pair of DSP5000 96/24 as a much appreciated and enjoyed stereo pair - so I need a SPDIF signal going into the master speaker - can not use more bit depth/sampling rate past that.

So - if I use a 218 can I use it's digital out to feed my DSP5000 master, can I limit that output to 96/24 (possibly in programing)?

IOW - the 218 would only be used as a analog to Digital adapter. Am I right in assuming if I can do this - this will give me nothing more than the equivalent of the Meridian 221 I'm using now?

The 218 is 24/96 at the digital output.

You can use it in the same manner as the 221.

The 218 can also stream from Roon and Sooloos

The 218 also has other inputs

With the correct adapters for comms the 218 could run things as a system from the iPad app.
