Gadgety posted a topic in General ForumHi, I'm new around here. My audio set up uses Squeezebox:es as transports. I enjoy the flexibility and ability to have instantaneous access to the music, although the SB set up is two channel only. I'm putting together a new PC and I'm looking into the Lynx AES16e for it's ability to serve up multichannel audio. Since I've seen there are a few of the forum members who use the AES16e, I'd like to ask what it's like in daily usage for listening, both in terms of audio quality, and in terms of convenience. I use digital amps and they have AES/EBU inputs. I won't be using 5.1, but rather a 4.1 set up (no center channel). What are your experiences with the AES16e? What made you go for it, and what's it like on a daily basis? Is it hard to set up the software? What about the interface - does it take long to suss out? Is it fiddly, or is it dependable, will it just play, once it's been set up? Sound quality compared to other options today (in case you've made comparisons)? I'm curious as to whether it's possible to mix say, multichannel audio converted to FLAC, or just LPCM, into a 4.1 mix through the AES16e software? I appreciate your input.
