Hello all, 

I'll soon be needing a digital interconnect, so of course I've been doing a bit of reading on the internet to see what's what. I'm no wiser, I feel like I've actually lost some knowledge rather than gained it so that's why I'm here cos I know you're all sensible. Smile

Firstly, I'd need a cable that's BNC on the dac side and RCA on the transport side. I believe a digital cable is ideally aiming for 75 Ohm impedance but I'm wondering how that may be influenced by the RCA plugs and BNC adapter that would be required if I used Graham's CuSat50 or Lautus cables? Is this something that would impact the quality of the connection or should I not worry about this?
 
Second thing - is the length of the cable important? 1.5m seems to be suggested by some to 'stop reflections' - again, thoughts or experiences would help to bring me a step closer to making an actual decision!

Cheers, Tim.

I run a 6 metre Lautus around a door frame from Bitzie SPDIF to Majestic SPDIF input, and it suits me fine for subjective product testing.
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

I replaced a 2m [hifi magazine advertiser] with a 3m Lautus. The music sounded much better and it saved me stretching!

Open mind and ears, whilst owning GSP Genera, Accession, Elevator EXP, Solo ULDE, Proprius amps, Cusat50 cables, Lautus digital cable, Spatia cables and links, and a Majestic DAC.

Thank you for your replies Graham and Jon, I guess as with most things in the world of audio the only answer is to try it for yourself - less reading and more experimentation!
