S/PDIF to USB in reverse

Recommended Posts

Question: Is it possible to use a USB to S/PDIF converter like Halide Bridge to link a DAC to my computer in the reverse direction?


Rather than output music from my computer to my stereo, I want to do the opposite: input the digital output from a DAC to a laptop USB port so I can capture it as a FLAC using Audacity.


I don't have a bridge or I would try it.




Any advice based on experience is appreciated.

You can't use a HiFace in reverse.


A lot of audio interfaces do have SPDIF input: check our M-Audio; RME; EMu and ESi for lower priced devices. The EMu 0404 USB 2.0 would be a good starting place to look.






...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.
