    Disabling SB3 analog/dac section

    hi guys, Is there is way to disable (software/hardware) the analog/DAC section of the SB3? I am thinking if this can further improve the performance of the unit since I'm only using it as a transport (Digital out).

    Thank you!

    I don't think it's possible without firmware changes. I also don't think you could improve "performance" by doing so.

    I suppose you could set digital output to fixed, and set the volume to 0. That would provide at worst a placebo effect.

    In slimserver, you can also attenuate the analogue circuits under Player Settings > Audio. Set Preamp Volume Control to "63" for max attenuation.

    This is v important - set Player Preamp volume control to 63 NOT zero.
    You want to see the signal path BEFORE it gets onto a CD/vinyl...it ain't what you'd call minimal...
