I have a VSR-880 which I have been using as a patch bay without converting to digital or recording, just sending six analog signals through the VSR-880 to the interface.

My question is: by simply running through the 880 am I getting the full signal or is the s/n ratio being reduced? It doesn't sound like it. Obviously recording on it is a different matter. I was thinking of using the f/x card on the front end of my chain but that means d/a conversion and a fidelity loss.

Any insights would be appreciated.

Everything (analogue) that goes into a VS, goes through the A/D conversion, and everything (analogue) that comes out, through the D/A conversion. There are no analogue signal paths inside.

Thank you for the response. But are you absolutely sure? I don't believe I am hearing a reduced s/n ratio and in rackmount mode, I am not processing the signal at all. Just in and out. But if what you say is correct, I might as well take advantage of the f/x card on the front end.

Again, thanks for taking the time to respond.
