How would I connect a good pair of reference monitors to my Audiophile 2496 to get the best possible reproduction?
I have a dedicated machine for Gigastudio/GPO with the Audiophile 2496 connected to my sequencer machine with a SB Audigy via SPDIF. I've been using my Altec Lansing 4.1 set connected to my sequencer machine for several years now even before I built my Giga machine.
Obviously I need a speaker upgrade. I've been looking at the Truth B2031A reference monitors for example. Like most good quality monitors I imagine, these require XLR or TSR connections. But I would like to be able to connect these directly to the SPDIF out on my 2496 on my Giga machine. I know I probably will need a mixer, but I don't really need anything fancy. I also like to be able to do some simple software audio mixing after I record my tracks and I don't want to have to wear headphones all the time to get a decent sound.
Suggestions? Thanks in advance!
