I have the opportunity of getting a Scarlatti stack for my second system (upsampler, clock and DAC).
I was reading through the documentation, and I have some doubts. Maybe you can help me
First, as I understand, the scarlatti clock outputs only one frequency at a time (44.1 or 48). So, if I am using USB input to the upsampler, I have to manually change the frequency, everytime I change the sampling rate of the file. Is this correct?
Second, I saw that the clock sports a USB input. In this case, it would change it’s frequency automatically. If so, is it possible for me to use this input, and link the clock spdif output to the upsampler? The scheme would be: transport - clock USB input - clock spdif output - upsampler spdif input - upsampler dual aes output - dac dual aes input. Will this work? Should I experience any SQ degradation?
Third, since the upsampler does not output DXD or DSDx2, is there any benefit for going dual aes to the dac?
Thanks for you help.
