    You can select any input on the source switch or remote, or you can use the auto mode, and this will go to a locked SPDIF input, or a USB that is not digitally silent. USB has priority as input in auto mode.

    I can’t say for sure, but presumably a remote or button on the front - two appear to be designated optical - or a system of priorities for active sources similar to that used on the Blu2. With so many inputs on the HMS, I’m sure there’s a straightforward way of moving between them.

    Thanks Rob. So if you had two optical sources connected then obviously you would ensure only one of those optical sources is sending data to the mscaler at any one time. Basic stuff i know....
     
  4. Crgreen
    Any other arrangement would make no sense.

    Silly me. Just realised I had the means to test this myself all the time. While I do not have an unpowered cable I have just remembered that the USPCB I am currently using between the Innuos server and the tX-U has a very small switch to turn off the vbus. Just turned vbus off and everything continues to work just fine, and I think it does sound better.

    I see that the HMS also has an optical output which presumably can be fed into the Dave. Would there be any advantages in using this rather than dual BNC?

    I have three of the Sysconcept cables in different lengths and all gave me a stable connection with Dave at 24/192 PCM and DSD64.

    What source though?

    So if I have an M-Scaler and a DAVE, can I have both the M-Scaler feed the DAVE and also a direct USB feed from my computer to DAVE (bypassing the Mscaler) and be able to choose between these 2 inputs to my DAVE on the fly by choosing the particular DAVE input I want?

    Is there any sort of conflict here?
    Would I need 2 different drivers on my computer and need to choose between them for each input?
    Thanks.

    Just curious. Under what circumstance would you want to bypass the M scaler?
     
  13. darkless
    I seem to recall that the M-scaler has a bypass feature for the upsampling that allows you to do exactly that.
     
  14. Rob Watts
    I made it easy - the Hugo M scaler has a pass through mode (with filter gain equalised) so it's dead easy to hear it; the switch is labelled OP SR, and red is pass through, green is 176.4/192, (1/4 M taps) blue is 352.8/384 (1/2 M taps) and white is the full 705.6/768 1M taps.

    Edit: only white enables the dual data mode, all the others are single data mode with one BNC active and the other disabled.
