I'm very happy with an Audio Envy digital coax from my Node 2i into the dac in my Marantz 8005 SACD.

Analysis Plus "Digital Crystal" COAX 1.5M
Continuous Cast Copper (solo crystal copper) braids, hollow oval design. Demo’d and owned various AQ, AP, Cardas in 1m and 1.5m and preferred AP Digital Crystal. Pricey, but this to a good DAC and wallah! https://analysis.plus/product/digital-crystal/
@todd1010 So how does your new cable sound? Want to step it up again on your Node? VH Audio sells a shielded two conductor power cable in bulk that is very good. For the ends from VH Audio as well, buy Furutech plugs. I don’t have photos of my system but I did post a pic of the cable I’m speaking about. I think you’ll be surprised of the improvement a better PC will make on your Node. Well worth the upgrade.
For digital audio applications, coax (RCA) is generally considered superior to optical (Toslink). Blue Jeans Cable offers some at very reasonable prices.
I just received a Cambridge Audio CVC v2 due to my ARC CD player, used as a transport, crapped out (yes I tried to have it fixed to no avail).
So, I'm interested in a new RCA-RCA digital cable to connect to a Bryston BDA-3.14.
Seems I'm hearing (no pun) good things about Analysis Plus.
I'm leaning towards the "Digital Crystal" but would like the OPs thoughts
on the Audioquest Carbon digital coax when you receive it. Thanks.
