    Hi guys,
    A simple question here.

    What will happen if I use 110ohm cable for SPDIF instead of the normal 75ohm.

    I am asking that because I have asked for 75ohm spdif cable and they sent to me 110 ohm.

    Probably nothing dangerouse.
    The SP/DIF signal is a 2v(or was it 0,5v) signal with phase-clock
    So the risk is the signal will all be interpered as 10101010101010101. or just nothing at all. but if the 110ohm does'nt damp the signal to much it will work just fine.
    Thats atleast what i would guess.

    so there should not be differences in sound quality too!

    hehe. Aslong as you have the signal in 0 and 1 and its in sync the will never change ;)

    Thanks Jonathan.

    what are you looking for using a bitscope?
    I have Spectrafoo.

    Would you please help me to do the test?

    thank you
