Digital Cables and Analog...interchangable?

In other words; am I losing data or eroding sound by using a great analog interconnect (Vahalla) in place of a digital cable b/t my CD player and DAC? thanks.
As I understand it, digital coaxial cables are 75 ohm and digital AES/EBU (XLR connectors) cables are 110 ohm. That said, I have used half an analog pair cable in place of a digital cable at times and it can work fine. Whether the digital coax or the analog sounds better in your system will be for you to decide. I use the AES/EBU and it sounds best to me.
In most situations, you can interchange an "analogue" interconnect for a "digital" cable without major problems. Having said that, one may run into issues with increased jitter, poorer sound, RFI, the inability of the transport to synchronize with the DAC ( won't go into "lock" mode ), etc... Most of this has to do with shielding ( or lack of it ), signal leakage, digital reflections i.e. "VSWR", etc....

If you've tried a specific cable, it works between the transport and DAC and you like the results, it doesn't matter whether the cable was marketed as "digital" or "analogue". It's simply passing signal and the mating circuitry is stable enough to deal with it. Sean

PS... the standard for a "digital" RCA cable is based on an appr 75 ohm figure. Balanced / XLR is based on an appr 110 ohm standard from what i can recall. Analogue based RCA's can be anywhere from 50 - 100 ohms or so.
Pull up and read his excellent explanation of this topic. And try the Belden 1694 cable for audio,video, and digital. You could be surprised by how good Belden cable is. Wonder how many of these high priced cables have Belden or Canare wire under their fancy wrap???
