UR28M and S/PDIF out/in

What it the purpose of the S/PDIF out/in on the UR28M?

Would you use these if you were using a stand-alone DAC (i.e. if you wanted to by-pass the DAC that is in the UR28M?



I use it for a Roland M-1000 and it’s connected to four other M-1000’s. Quite a bit of recent (not really analog) equipment have S/PDIF and they are already digital, so that’s it for me.

Though technically I use an MR, not a UR, but it’s basically the same scenario. :slight_smile:

I slapped outboard AD and DA converters onto them so as to provide additional audio in/outs.
