RE: Good Question

The analogue cable I'm using in place of a "proper" digital XLR AES/EBU is a basic Mogami Neglex 2534 microphone cable 2 m long. I have a parallel RCA S/PDIF digital cable from Signal Cables USA of 3 ft length. Can I tell the difference? Frankly there's so little in it.

I use the CDP so rarely now, I won't get a bespoke XLR digital cable right now. However I'll probably soon get a NAD Master Series M50.2 when they become available (cdp / ripper / server / streamer) which I will connect to my DAC (NAD M12) with a proper digital balanced cable.
