Alright, please bear with me. I know the beam is not designed to be compatible with these kinds of devices. But…. if we can be theoretical at least, what does it take to convert the digital output from the pioneer djm 900nxs mixer to a signal that the sonos beam can play?
I have seen some people converting RCA to digital hdmi audio, but I just bought such a converter, and the beam would not recognize it. I then noticed that the pioneer mixer has a digital output, same physical plug/socket as a single RCA / phono connection, but should be digital, however I don’t know more about it than that. Link to the manual is here: http://docs.pioneerdj.com/Manuals/DJM_900NXS_DRB1542B_manual/?_ga=2.122783947.1149498362.1631907776-1773056362.1629119165
or the website: https://www.pioneerdj.com/en/support/documents/archive/djm-900nxs/
The digital output is sparingly mentioned on page 8.
I don’t understand what the digital audio signal is, or is called, and I haven’t been able to find any converter that takes this plug and turns it into hdmi. furthermore, I don’t know if the beam would recognize it as a TV (I believe, the beam won’t talk with anything else that tvs or tv impostors).
I see a few options here, but can’t make the right connection. The beam can take audio from HDMI (but needs to look like a tv or something?) or it can take a optical signal from the adapter that came with the device.
The djm, has several output sources, RCA and RXL (analogue) or this digital thingy… Any ideas on which converter that should work with either of the output sources of the djm, and which type of input I should use on the beam (hdmi/optical) ?
Thanks in advance!
ps. I have seen few similar questions, which are all shot down very quickly with “No we don’t recommend doing this, it is not designed to do this” …. etc. look, I know… But I would still like to try.
