You need a 110 to 75 Ohm transformer to do it right. Canare makes one, but it is xlr-BNC so you would still need a BNC to RCA adapter.

SPDIF is 75 ohms, AES/EBU is 110 ohms - which is what Rotarius was saying in the first post
Wikipedia sez that SPDIF is "essentially" a consumer version of AES using consumer connectors - but AES 110/XLR is balanced (why it is used in pro installations) whereas SPDIF is single ended (why you find it on a consumer unit).
As I understand SPDIF was developed by the Sony CD consortium as a tool for testing - it would make sense that they were familiar with and used part or all of the AES (Audio Engineering Society) standard.
So the conversion may or may not be complex - best bet is to call Behringer
Thnx for the thread - I read the article and it still escapes me how they are EQing before the bits are decoded
No doubt however that good EQ is a wonderful thing
