Firewire or spdif

Recommended Posts



Sorry, if this has been discussed before or is too obvious: Which connection should I use between my eMac and M-Audio Audiophile 2496 Firewire –firewire or spdif? I've talked to the distributor and asked this in the M-Audio forum, but still I'm not clear.

Hi Burak - Welcome to Computer Audiophile. The answer to your question is really up to your ears. Whatever interface sounds better to you in your system will be the right one. I believe your S/PDIF interface will also do 24/96 like the FireWire interface. If all your content is 16/44.1 then this won't really matter.


A black & white answer to what interface is better is really not possible because they are all implemented differently.
