First, Dave, that information is very helpful.
That said, I didn't ask because I'm worried about the theory. I was asking
for a collaborator in testing.
The theory's been discussed before on this list, and I'm aware that more
than one person/organization has experimented with this to some success. It
was also *briefly *discussed at last year's conference in DC. However,
every time I've seen a discussion about the topic, it has never come along
with what matters to me: testing to make sure what's coming off the DDS
drive is the same (or better) data than what would go down the AES/EBU
I'm still extremely interested in this situation, and after having had to
deal with other similar formats, I've got ideas for testing that I'd like to
do. But I don't have a working DDS setup here. I could build my own, which
I might do, but that's a can of worms, and there's other things to be gained
by having a collaborator in these tests.
