I tried several different HQ pulsetransfomers on SPDIF. They all sounded seriously different.
I'm not really tempted to put another disturbing element into the link.

Beside that I got away from SPDIF and switched to Toslink.

toslink is still spdif - spdif is the protocol, no matter if it's toslink or coax.

Come on. This is not the kindergarden.

I guess it's pretty clear what I'm talking about.

If people talk SPDIF people usually talk about coax

It's confusing when people use wrong terms. And I don't think people usually mean coax when talking about spdif.

Sorry, if I've been confusing you. Hopefully, you feel better now. Enjoy your day.

Wow that exchange went sour.

What are you currently using Kjeldsen, miniDSP or have you gone DDX and if so any comments on the sound quality? Just read the STA320 datasheet in search of any frequency responses for the different EQ filters, no luck, has anyone measured the differences. Intend to run a dipole setup with this so hoping the ones of a bass-boost variety come in handy.

Soundcheck,
Any news on the direct i2s connection? Was hoping to run this from the Amanero USB -> i2s module. Hope you will update your blog soon with additional DDX findings and perhaps a few pictures. A very nice read!

I was just trying to help. One can easily go from AES to spdif (same sound protocol - AES has some other protocols, but going from AES to spdif ia a 1:1 relation - impedance match can be easily done). There is no conversion going on, so unless something is constucted badly, there will be absolutely no difference

Still using MiniDSP and their MiniAmp. I'm slowly progressing with my OB. I'm not using DDX, but either Connex 8950th modules or a 6 channel TA2022 tripath module.

Absolute No Difference = Absolute Nonsene.

The bits will have the same logical value, but that's about it.

Anything you change on the link, will make a physical difference.
It'll depend on the receiving unit, what impact that physical
difference will have on the experienced SQ.

Just saw that the Deqx HDP-4 comes -- beside its analog outputs -- also with
3 SPDIF outputs. Now I understand the earlier discussed approach.

But folks. $5000 for a digital (black box) interface.
