Please help me figure out if there is a problem with my new digital studio monitors (speakers.) They are supposed to decode 192 KHz streams, but I can only get them to do 96 KHz... plus I don't know what any of this really means...
I just bought a pair of Behringer MS-40 digital monitors
. They supposedly have "Ultra-high resolution 24-bit/192 kHz D/A converters for an incredible dynamic range" but I can't seem to get that work.
Here's my setup:
Speakers are connected via optical (TOSLINK? S/PDIF?) to my mother board. The board is a MSI K9N SLI Platinum with a Realtek ALC883
codec. I've upgraded to the latest drivers, etc.
The speakers work fine, but only when I've selected 2 channel, 24 bit, 96000 Hz
(Studio Quality). I get only silence when I choose the 2 channel, 24 bit, 192000
Hz (Studio Quality) setting.
The thing is I'm not 100% up to speed on S/PDIF, DACs and the like, so I don't know if the behavior I'm witnessing is a problem or not.
I've gone through all of my settings and tried different things, I'm beginning to think that the problem is in the DAC in the speakers. But it seems like if there was a problem, they wouldn't work at all.
Anyway, I'm at my wits end, so any advice is welcome.
My OS is Vista 64. Usage is for straight stereo sound only, no DTS, Dolby, yadda, yadda...
Please no responses saying I'm not going to miss the extra 96 KHz, that only parakeets can hear the difference or whatever... I'm trying to figure out if the speakers are working as advertised, that's all...
Thanks in advance!
