Yes i noted. As some say, google is your friend.
So, IS2 hammer both coaxial and aes/ebu balanced digital connection it seems!?
If so i don't get why there's only one port for IS2 on the dac i ordered.
If jitter is zero and bandwidth is top, you'd like to connect a streamer and a transport to IS2. Nobody is pulling cables back and forth so this is annoying. Now it seems balanced digital is better than coaxial, so best would probably be to use a transport using IS2 for a streamer and a balanced digital for transport, or am i making the wrong assumption?
I use Mogami 2964 / Canare RCA coaxial from enoaudio bought at Amazon for ~$40. Running between Node2i and RME ADI-2 DAC. I have run RME bit test between these components on both the coaxial and another Toslink and the transmission is 100% correct. Even if you spent $40,000 on a super-exotic cable you wouldn't beat the 100% correctness result. Which tells me I could have gotten an even cheaper cable on B&H (Hosa?)
I just found 2 digital aes/ebu sets i used back in 2002.
One brand i don't remember, the other one is signal cable.
I also found 2 custom made Krell cast cables.
Perhaps i should try and see how these two digital cables work first.
If i don't hear much difference, i probably should skip my urge for better (more expensive) ditos. However, i am curious of Inakustiks 2404
I contacted the reseller of the Nuprime combo, he actually suggested to move up from CDT-8 Pro to CDT 10 instead of more "exotic cables".
Btw, how does Nordost Heimdall 2 sound?
Are they thin in lower mid and bass?
I remember the older Nordost were good match for bass heavy systems
