Andromeda phone inputs

Postby jvictor1 » Sun Jan 22, 2023 12:03 pm

Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between the Andromeda front panel phone input and the rear panel phone input?

Assuming you mean mic and headphone connectors, the ones on the back go to the internal PC. The ones on the front go to the Orion SDR board.

Remember that the Andromeda is just a 7000 with a PC inside and PC display on the front, plus a few knobs and switches.

So for passing receive audio out to powered monitor speakers which output is preferred? The front panel or the rear from the Nuc PC?

Performance-wise they are nearly equivalent. From a setup perspective the front panel connection is easiest, especially if this is your first Apache/Thetis radio.
