Macbook pro to 8330 via AES EBU?

Youngling Viestejä: 9 Liittymispäivä: 9.9.2017 Viimeisimmät viestit

I am just about the order Genelec 8330 Pack and need to figure out a way to connect my MacBook Pro to 8330's AES EBU port. 

I guess I could get a DDC units like MUTEC MC 3+USB or Yellowtec PUC2 Lite. But I am looking for more affordable options.

So I found this Schiit Eitr USB to SPDIF converter ($179) but it only has a coaxial output. 

Is there such thing as coaxial to AES adapter?  or can I just use a SPDIF to AES cable like this one to connect coaxial out to 8330's AES EBU? 

Any info would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.

Hello,

Thank you for your question. That converter and cables will work with the 8330's, as long as the cables are short. There is more information related to your question in an older thread, but the information is still valid.
