SPDIF to AES on 8240 Connection

Youngling Viestejä: 14 Liittymispäivä: 6.12.2014 Viimeisimmät viestit
I will be connecting my 8240s with an RME UC, which has a SPDIF out that is "AES/EBU" compatible.

Does this mean I just need a cable that is RCA to XLR? Or does it have to say SPDIF to EBU? Do I need anything to convert? I saw some people who mentioned some sort of Mutec box in between but I'm not sure if and why that is necessary.

Then the 2 speakers AES are connected via standard XLR? or is AES cable something else?

If you keep the cable short you will get away without impedance converters, the one we use at trade shows is less than 2 mtrs.
