RE: Supra ZAC Toslink Cable Report

IIRC, you once had a mixed impression of the Lifatec Silflex Glass Toslink, Awe-d-o-file. If so, you might like to post insights about your current perspective, since it might be of help to bcowen.

It could be that the presentation of a glass Toslink cable may take some time to get accustomed to, since the interface does seem to have a unique sonic signature that is different than a digital coaxial cable interface.

IME, the Lifatec Silflex Glass Toslink cable does sound very streamlined which might reveal other issues that should be addressed if the previous 75 ohm digital cable sounded somewhat warm and full-bodied in comparison, which might be a preferable option. This issue being pertinent if a listener has an ability to use either type of interface for their application, since if given a choice I prefer a high-performance 75 ohm or 110 ohm interface vs. digital optical. The underpinning reason being that many types of audio applications only provide a Toslink output for a digital interface, so one has to work with that limitation. That is the case in my audiophile situation.
