Topic: RayDat Toslink switcher

Hi,
I am using ONE Raydat in a PC. Now I have not enough channels for my studio. So I came up with the idea
to use a switcher to switch between two adat intefaces (Behringer ADA 8200), so I can use eighter the 8
inputs from the one ADA or the other (I have already 4 ADA 8200 connected and have a 5th one!!).
I only use the others from time to time and NOT at once. I also dont want to use an addional mixer.

Does anoone know a switcher where I can switch between 2 adat (toslink) inputs to one output (connected to the raydat)?

I found some toslink switches on amazon/ebay for about 20€ but they "only" work with LPCM2.0, DTS und Dolby-AC3.
Any idea?

Thnaks in advance

Re: RayDat Toslink switcher

These Toslink switches are not active devices, are they? They just switch the optical transmission. Try it out, might also just work with ADAT....

Hi Daniel,
thanks... it´seems they are active, cause they need a power supply. Like this: https://www.ebay.de/itm/SPDIF-Toslink-S … 3092868466

Best is to try a devide, if no one had the same problem and in the meanwhile a solution... ?

Re: RayDat Toslink switcher

I use several of these mechanical optical switches. Around 10 € for a 3-way switch. Works perfectly for ADAT.

like this one:
