What is the best way to get a digital signal from my macbook pro to the coaxial digital in on my CDP?


Recommended Posts

Cheapest way, if inelegant, is an optical-coax converter. I bought one for $11.20 from WWW.PIMFG.COM, and used it to connect a Mac Mini to a Resolution Audio Opus 21 when I was loading it to bring back to England (a solution for a transatlantic existence). Results were as good as direct CD play from the Opus 21 apart from a little high-frequency hashing experienced once and briefly in many hours of playback. Worthwhile as a temporary measure anyway.

Optical to Coax


Try something from Mutec:




I have a MC1 and I use the 3.5mm Tosling to the MC1 and output AES/EUB - but you can also out put coax. A great piece of kit!
