Most of the time, the headphone out of a Mac doubles as Toslink output ... ... ...
You'll only see the red light if you plug a TOSLink adapter into the headphone port first. It turns off the digital output and hides it from the device listing, thanks to the wonderful magic of jack sensing.
rca spdif to aes differ only by impedance i believe.
Quote from: pierreaubert on 18 February, 2017, 11:17:10 AMrca spdif to aes differ only by impedance i believe.No, data is also different.I have used this Neutrik Impedance Transformer with coaxial RCA cable and RCA-BNC adapter. This works only if target takes S/PDIF signal through XLR input.http://www.neutrik.com/en/accessories/aes-ebu-impedance-transformers/
Since these devices are transformers, and don't change the data, how can they work?
