Difference between high end aes/ebu cable and generics
Hello everyone! Not sure if this is the right place but I was looking for an informed opinion from the best.
I need to connect a digital RTA to my benchmark DAC via AES/EBU. My question is there any difference .i.e. Extra jitter, a non clean eye-mask, etc, between a high end digital cable like Apogee and a generic 100ohm AES/EBU cable? The cables in question are the following:
At 10 feet probably no difference between any AES/EBU cables. The AES/EBU interconnect is a very robust system. At short lengths you could cut the zip-cord off an old table lamp, solder some connectors on the cord and it would work just fine. Only at long lengths is cable quality a factor.
I have listened extensively to this... First and foremost good design! not cable makeup. That being said go with the wide eye, it keeps up with exotic cables. If you want more go with Evidence Audio ... Absolutely not Hosa
The RTA is a real time analyzer. I can hook up a calibrated mic to te unit and it will auto EQ my for for me. Given the number of speakers and bass transducers I'm hoping the RTA helps. There is only so much you can do by ear. (Even with a good one
