So I read this: https://www.magicbus.biz/sony-rsx-gs9-tips.html
Raymond goes on to explain that RCA provides higher resolution than optical output.
He mentions that going through optical will induce the following limitations:
-The GS9's sophisticated volume control is defeated, and
-Native DSD cannot be played, and
-The GS9's internal DSP controls (subwoofer adjustments, for example) are defeated.
-Playback is limited to 24-bit/96kHz
If the Helix is limited to 96khz sample rate why would it matter if we're going through RCA which has a DAC that could sample at 32-bit/768khz resolution?
The signal that the processor is processing is bringing the Sony's DSD signal down to 96khz sample rate right?
Could someone clarify this for me? Thanks.
