    No Hugo M scaler has no dither option, nor is dither added at all when using the full 1M taps. 16 bit data is treated identically to 24 bit data - actually 16 bit data is 24 bit with 8 zeroes.

    I think you are just hearing the 16 bit dither being added via your PC when you set it to 16 bit mode (which you should never do as 24 bit sources will get truncated and re-dithered).

    I just paused the music with hms being fed 16bit/44kHz. Optical into hms from my imac. I hear no hiss just complete silence.

    An interesting statement. I and others may beg to differ with you on that so I wondered where you had got that information as I have not seen anything indicating it.

    Thanks Rob, that makes sense!

    So why spend $200 when the Audioquest adapter and 2 gold plated BNC connectors run ~ $16 on eBay. Would there be any difference in SQ between these two options??
  6. musickid
    Rob stated excellent results with adaptors. I prefer the adaptor method. It strikes me as the more technically correct and tested method. Of course 75ohm bnc cables must be used. Higher quality cables than those supplied are easily available.

    What does the DX OP light mean. On the remote it cycles through black, green and white but always defaults to red. The user manual just states “refer to partnering in product manual”

    What costs 200 ?

    Incoming sample rate. DXOP light.

    See my photo above tunes. Concerning adaptors my audioquest adaptor is shown.

    200$ for moon audio's twin bnc to coax cable for h2/hms.

    Suffice to say, the words red, light and district are involved.
