    If your place is big enough... you need 2,5m listening distance from the speakers.

    it's 5,5k€ with GLM set.

    Re: Audio mixer/controller hardware recommendations

    Thanks for the further input; I hadn't looked hard at the smart monitors and I see there is a choice to be made with the 8330 vs. 8030 perhaps.  So the advantages would be the room correction, digital in, optional volume controller, and lower noise floor?  I'm not sure if I can take advantage of feeding it a digital AES/EBU signal without adding something like a DeckLink Studio 4K card with its breakout cable (based on my rough homework so far).

    Thanks for the food for thought on these smart monitors.

    OMG out of sympathy, he realized that with that many speakers I'm not a hobbyist, but a pathological case.

    You can use all features in analog mode too, only the noise floor gets lower in digital mode.
    If you have an analog mixer now for your PC and decklink card, you can continue using that.
    I'm one step further, no more mixer, only a small RME PCIe card with decklink as an input.
    The Genelec voulme control is really nice, the knob is digital and never crackles, but is haptic like an analog unit.

    LOL. If only I could come up with a valid reason to get me some 10/1237's for L C and R...

    We live in the future man, we don't need reasons.
    I tell myself this type gear is cheap because it lasts forever, forgetting it's pitfall is it's darn weight.

    If you have a good space, some geometry, a little bit of acoustic treatment and you get to play with it yourself,
    I'll highly recommend.

    Re: Audio mixer/controller hardware recommendations

    Thanks for the further info; I'm looking up the RME cards to see what's available.  I see that something like the HDSPe AIO Pro would have the AES/EBU outs that could directly go into the 8330A, with the volume controller on the side.  I think that's the kind of streamlined setup you're mentioning, which makes use of the digital mode on the 8330As.

    Thanks again; I will chew on that possible configuration.

    Re: Audio mixer/controller hardware recommendations

    Caveat: if you plan on using a video output device as well: MC won't let you send picture to one device and sound to another. So you can't use the RME for audio and, say, a Decklink for video output. If you have such a video output card installed, that is what MC will use.

    You could also consider getting something simple like a Decklink Monitor and use its HDMI output to feed a Home Theatre type pre-amp. Some of those, like the Marantz 7xxx and 8xxx series have XLR outputs. And a Master Volume of course. It's what I do to drive a 5.1 monitoring system from my MC setup.

    Re: Audio mixer/controller hardware recommendations

    Hmm? Yes Job, but you only need a pre-amp for surround,
    for stereo the AES or analog outputs of the decklink will be enough.

    Just the Decklink Mini is HDMI only and needs an audio disembedder, last time I checked.
    I'm still using a Mojo DX, connecting its optical audio output to the RME card.

    Re: Audio mixer/controller hardware recommendations

    You could use the preamp as a monitor level controller. Even in stereo. And I was referring to the Decklink Mini monitor, which only has SDI/HDMI outs, with embedded audio. The preamp would function as a disembedder and level controller (and even delay and minor room correction if you wanr).

    Re: Audio mixer/controller hardware recommendations

    Thanks both for all of the followup on the separate audio/video output card caveat.  It's much appreciated.
