View Full Version : SB3 with Krell HTS-1

2006-03-02, 02:32
Has anyone used their Squeezebox with a Krell HTS (Home Theatre Standard)? I'm considering buying one, but I've read that this processor has a 2 second delay when decoding through the SPDIF input. I was wondering if this would be just for the first track, or for all tracks?

Also I see there's a setting for 'Audio Startup Time', but it looks like this is only for mp3 playback, and most of my stuff is FLAC so I guess this won't help.

Though I can't help you with that pre/pro, I think the audio startup delay text is confusing and is probably inaccurate.

Keep in mind the SB outputs PCM through its digital outputs. Not MP3 audio, PCM. And it doesn't care where it comes from: WAV, FLAC, MP3, WMA, AAC, etc. It's all PCM. So there's no reason to delay just for MP3 - they are all output the same.

I would bet that the delay is for all formats, not just MP3.
