New to the world of Volumio via RPI + Allo DigiOne ‘streamer’, and given that the amp that I am connecting my ‘streamer’ to only has coax digital inputs, I am connecting the ‘streamer’ via its coax, rather than BNC output.
But then reading a bit around the subject I find that BNC impedance is 75 Ohms whilst coax is 50 Ohms, so basically (as I understand it) the BNC connection is better in terms of jitter minimisation.
Then checking my amplifier I find that the coax inputs are rated at 75 Ohms, which suggests to me that I should use the BNC output from the ‘streamer’.
But that means that I have 3 choices for cabling up, i.e., a suitable quality digital cable, terminated:
- BNC to Coax
- BNC to BNC with Coax Adapter
- Coax with BNC Adapter to Coax
So my question is which of the above, assuming that digital cable is digital cable (good quality of course), which termination combo would be best from a sonic perspective, i.e., minimised impact on signal quality, etc.
From my readings I can find nothing definitive but though that perhaps the knowledgable folks in this Community might have advice to offer.
Many thanks in anticipation.
