Hello,

This is my first time posting here. I recently bought a pair of Genelec 8330s and it's been wonderful. I am currently using SPDIF/Toslink out from my Apogee Element, and it just involves too many cables and converters in-between my Apogee and Genelec (Apogee Toslink - Toslink to Coax - Coax to AES). I am looking for the best value USB-SPDIF solution, so I could just use my Canare Coax cable and the Canare BNC to AES/EBU impedance changer. Any recommendations?

You don’t really need a cable with impedance transformer, just RCA to XLR should be fine for distances of a few meters.

Will it be better to connect them without it? I already have them.

I am using it since more than a year on a daily basis and didn't think about it before you were asking...
Great! I will look into it. It seems like the D10s is the latest version for now so I might pull the trigger on that.
