I’m looking to add a Subwoofer in the near future, but as my Naim Nait 5si has no pre or sub-outs, I’m looking at ways to connect a sub to my system, and cut the lows to my mains.
So I’m looking at the option of using the sub-out on the Node; the only issue is, I believe the digital out isn’t affected by the cross-over settings in the Node with Sub turned on, and as I use an external DAC - > amp, I would still have full frequency range going in to my mains.
I’m just toying with solutions, and was wondering if this would work:
* Node sub-out to sub
* Node digital out to DAC
*RCA outs from DAC to the 3.5mm analogue In on the Node via 2xRCA to 3.5mm cable
* RCA analogue outs on Node to amp
In my thinking, which could be completely wrong, i would still be bypassing the Node DAC, but by feeding the analogue signal back in to the Node, and back out in to my amp, the feed would be affected by the sub crossover settings in the Node, minus low frequencies determined by Node crossover settings?
I would be most grateful if some kind soul could either show me the errors in my thinking, or confirm the above workaround is viable 🤔😊
Thanks very much for reading
Kind Regards and Seasons Greetings 😊
Just to add; I use the Node in fixed output/bypassing the pre-amp and tone controls, and my DAC has no pre-amp, it's a Denafrips Ares II
