Hello and thanks for everyone's time. This is my first post here on Head-Fi. So I'm new to this stuff and need some advice. I just bought a Schiit Magni and Modi Stack. I have a Asguard 2 and Bifrost on the way! But this is where I run into confusion. I may be over thinking this a bit. So I will be using RCA cables but there are two kinds: Coax for digital and RCA for analog.
Coax cables have a solid core conductor with a 75 ohms impedance. A regular RCA cable has high strand woven conductor which has a very low ohm impedance. I know the rule of thumb is digital for digital and analog for analog signals. Now I know that they are both RCA cables, but my question is does it matter which one to use as an interconnect between the DAC and Amp? I ask this because DAC stands for digital to analog converter so in my mind that would mean to use a regular RCA cable instead of a Coax cable. But the more I look into it the more confused I get. On the Schiit website it says for the specs on both DACs: Output: (RCA single ended) Output impedance: 75 ohms. So does this mean I should be using the Coax RCA cable? Would both cables work the same? Would one cable transfer data more efficiently or would they sound exactly the same? All input would be appreciated. Thanks.
