I just purchased a Schiit Bifrost (waiting for it to arrive) for use with my Schiit Asgard, Emotiva Pro Airmotiv 5 monitors, and my numerous headphones. I am confused as to what types of cable interconnects I need to connect the Bifrost to the Asgard and to the Airmotiv 5s.
I know Schiit's Pyst cables are RCA analog cables, but I have read that digital coaxial RCA cables can carry both digital and analog signals. Obviously, the Bifrost is converting the digital signals from the PC to analog signals that that an amplifier can amplify, but can digital coaxial RCA cables carry those analog signals, too?
I have considered just getting the Pyst cables to connect the Bifrost to the Asgard, but I will need longer cables to connect the Bifrost to the Airmotiv 5s. I am considering getting digital coaxial RCA cables from Monoprice since their analog RCA cables are 2RCA to 2RCA cables. 2RCA to 2RCA analog cables could work between the Bifrost and the Asgard, but not between the Bifrost and Airmotiv 5s since the monitors are a few feet apart.
Thank you very much for your help!
