I want AES EBU XLRM out. What do? Digital Converters

I want AES EBU XLRM out. What do?

So my interface has, S/PDIF (coax) out, ADAT optical out and 1/4" analogue out. What would be the cheapest way for me to get AES EBU XLR out from those?
I have no idea if this is the right subforum for this. :/

Nope. SPDIF and AES are different formats. This will not work.



Search for a SPDIF to AES converter.
On a side note - why do you specifically need AES out?

I've done that already and not sure if I found any proper solutions. Ofc it would be all the same if got adat to AES if it was any cheaper. They seem to start from 500-600€.

I'm looking for a Genelec DSP system and I want to know how could I get it as cheap as possible. The converting thingy is holding me back because though there is a genelec A/D converter with 4 aes ebu outs it costs 700€. So if I could just get a small adapter to get one AES out I could get the costy solution when/if I'm upgrading my system to 5.1. But since the system works with one AES up to 2.1 it's not necessary to buy it yet.

I just bought a MIDIMan Flying Cow AD-DA converter off of eBay. It was $99 bucks. I have not tried it yet. It has a sticker on it that it used to be owned by the NBA. Makes me wonder if it converted Marv Albert at one time.

It has XLR (analog), SPDIF, and AES ins and outs. The auction had several for sale.

I have not hooked it up yet, so I really can't say anything about its quality or ease of use.

The cheapest option that comes to mind is Behringer Ultramatch.
The recent model also has AD/DA conversion, which as I understand you don't need,
so maybe get the older one,which is only digital format converter.
They seem to go for 50 bucks:

Canare make small AES>SPDIF adaptors (both directions, separate part numbers) that have worked well for me for ten years. These are barrel-type thingies, and the SPDIF side has a BNC connector, so you will also need a BNC male > RCA female adaptor ($5). They do not require power.
