Well... now that I've exhumed that bit of info, I'm not sure that I'm applying it accurately. So Brad if you don't mind a little pop quiz...
Spdif makes me a little nervous only because of the looks of it: screams of rca unbalanced world; I know that probably means nothing. But for that matter, any differences going in with "computer" digital, if you will, i.e., firewire, usb vs. "audio" digital, i.e. aes/ebu, spdif, etc.?
