Mix-down or transfer of digital recordings from on manufacturer's digital recorder to another's ins't always straight forward. Some manufacturers' Digital Work Stations, sound Cards or DAT recorders have only S/PDIF outputs, and some offer only AES/EBU inputs, or vice versa.
The CDL-313 by Hosa is a high quality, digital link, allowing simultaneous transfer of two channels of digital-audio in either to both directions between AES / EBU (XLR) and S/PDIF (RCA). Now, even though some digital recorders and work stations have only RCA-type S/PDIF connections, and some have only XLR-type AES/EBU connections, you can still make transfers without leaving the digital realm. An indispensable tool for the digital recordist!
S.C.M.S. (Serial Copy Management System) is disabled when transferring from S/PDIF to AES/EBU.
Cables Make A Difference
On the AES/EBU side, use high-quality 110-ohm XLR-terminated cables, like TecNec's P/DXLM-F, and SCDXX Series. (SC3DXXJ 3 Feet, to 300 Feet!) JAES or EBU series. On the S/PDIF side, use quality 75-ohm RCA-terminated cables like TecNec's SPDIF Cable series. available in varied lengths, from 1.5Ft (SPDIF1.5) to 50 Feet! (SPDIF50)
