Yes, this is the assuming part. People spend all kind of money of magic wire when what really matters is the connectors. You'd think they first swap out connectors on their equipment.

The entire professional audio world uses Nuetrik XLR connectors but those require a balanced signal that aren't used in consumer gear. For single ended audio frequency signals the only trouble with RCA is that they don't lock and it's just a friction fit.

If they share that outlook then you can safely ignore their advice.

cliffffffffff,

I asked my question because:
  • like every other diyAudio member. I have the right to ask my question(s) here.

  • after perusing the different possible places to ask my question(s) on this issue. I felt asking my question here was the most appropriate spot to do so.

  • despite your outlook on wires. I've discovered some members, even those who are primarily measurement & spec oriented, believe digital wires have their own unique sound.

  • not all members here are prone to responding to others who disagree with their POV on a topic with smart alec, snide remark.

Hopefully that is a sufficient enough response to your question. Now I undertsand you certainly have the right to do so. Due to your past history of aggressive and very confrontational responses to my posts in Audio Asylum and IIRC even here in diyAudio as well. I don't know why you'd even bother to respond to any questions I post. Perhaps you noticed every one who posted believed that digital wires that are properly matched to the components they'll be used with, will have no unique sound? Did you also notice even though they disagreed with my POV. Not one single person ---{besides yourself that is}--- questioned why I'd post my question here? Especially since you'll have nothing of value to add in direct response to the question(s).

Don't think so. I know Tom, and he is a very sincere guy. I firmly believe that he's sincerely wrong, but no way he's trolling.

I have used this Oyaide cable .. very good value for money..

DR-510 / DB-510 ????????????????????????????????oyaide?

If you can try switching from RCA connectors to BNC.. BNC sounds much better than RCAs on my Shigaclone and BII Dac

How do you know your system is matched, have the PCB traces been laid out to have a 75 ohm characteristic impedance, I would say not, and even then you can expect +/-20% if you are lucky, same with connectors etc., but for this application it doesn't really matter or make any difference to the signal integrity.

All questions are sensible. Some answers are not.

Tom, DH-Labs have new D-750 cable. Do not spend more than it costs. Ready cable will cost you ~130$

I have it's predecessor - D-75 - quite impressive if you compare to other digital cables.

Have not heard D-750, but it should be slightly better then D-75, as DH-Labs says.
