not sure which is the best choice for audio when running wsjt-x
I'm using 'Line', at present as it seemed similar to the old 'line in' term with other systems.
What do you think?
Does adjusting the DAX RX slice slider have the same effect as adjusting the Slice Speaker slider.
Flex6K is one heck of digital radio for the JT modes.
I'm decoding signals I can hear OR SEE in the waterfall.
Takes a bit of fine tuning to get all the parts working together but working stations who are using less that 5 watts and simple antennas.

Not sure why you would use audio when doing digital as all "audio" in digital modes is via DAX

Adjusting thenDAX RX slider controls the gain of the "audio" to WSJT-X

But in reality it's not audio but a stream of numbers without the losses and distortion of conversions from digital to audio to digital. This is why it works so well in digital
