Question Best digital coax cable

What you recommend to connect Toshiba SD-900E with Denon AVC-11SR in digital path. DIY cable or fabric ? I can bought all series Stright Wire cables and Supra in good prices. Which will be the best for digital connection ?
Thanks
Rafal

I recomend a set of good quality 75ohm RCA connectors and a hunk of good quality RG-6U coax cable. I prefer coax as the physical medium (shoddy plastic used in Toslink specs) in Toslink is not very good. Just my personal opinion...

Best of luck!

I tested several cables. Best I found was 75Ohm "high quality" antenna cable for satellite antenna systems. High quality means extreme low dampening and shielding achieved by inner insulation made of air foamed PE plastic. The outer lead is made of 100% covering aluminum foil sometimes plus one single cable. I use BNC connectors on it, the only solution with real 75Ohms impedance. One ferrite ring on it on one side can also improve the performance much, but the geometry has to be tested. Funny sound effects at to big ferrite ring portions. Tell me again that jitter effects are not audible…

Regards

Klaus

Default Termination

Digital interconnect should be grounded only in one place like analog interconnects ?

No!...they should be grounded at both ends...the sending and receiving end.
