I've been following this thread and finally have an ES-40 that I'm trying to connect to my MacBook and/or iMac.

I see much discussion re: SPDIF output from the Mac via > Toslink > Converter > Coax, however is there any reason why a 3.5mm > RCA cable like this, directly from the Mac to the ES-40 wouldn't work?:


RCA to Mono 3.5mm Mini Plug S/PDIF Digital Audio Cable

Is there any reason to deal w/ Toslink and a converter @ all, or am I missing something?

Thanks.

What an odd cable. I can't think of a single case where that would be useful.

You need a TOSlink converter. Whatever you can get out of a Mac on a 3.5mm jack is not digital audio.

Ah - i assumed it couldn't possibly be that simple . . .

Thanks very much for the prompt response.
