Recently picked up a Kemper amp, and am attempting to work out how to go about using it in combination with the babyface digital i/o. I have to admit I am a total newbie when it comes to digital cabling so please forgive my total ignorance, but I can't work out what cabling is required to interface with one another.
As far as I was aware the babyface has an ADAT & S/pdif out. From the stuff I read, the Kemper also has a S/pidif out - so I sort of assumed I could just pick up a TOSLINK Optical Cable and the two would make sweet love...sadly, it seems this is one marriage on the rocks.
On receiving a digital (TOS) Optical Interconnect cable, it fits absolutely fine into the babyface, but doesn't fit into the kemper s/pidif out out, whose connection is sorta round like a phono i/o.
On reading the kemper manual it only refers to digital i/o as spidif but after doing a bit of research on line, am I right in saying the Kempers digital out is in fact an electrical output that requires an RCA type coaxial connection?
So in essence, do I need a cable that is one side TOS, and the other side RCA coaxial? Do such cables exist, or do I have to buy another cable like this: Pro Video Digital Coaxial Audio Interconnect 2m : Digital Audio : Maplin Electronics
and then a conversion box like this: Coaxial to Optical Digital Signal Convertor : Digital Audio : Maplin Electronics
although that box seems to be one way only, in theory would that do the job for recording digital signal to DAW..would going into one of these conversion boxes not degrade the signal..thus rendering the whole thing kind of pointless? Is there another solution I am not aware of?
