Hi-

I have a Headroom MicroDAC whihc is being fed by a SqueezeBox 3. I'd like to use the Coax connector on the MicroDAC rather than the optical toslink. I'd like to do this with a 75 ohm cable with 75 ohm connectors. This isn't a problem on the RCA end (which is what the SqueezeBox has) but I can't seem to find the right cable with the right mini connector on the MicroDAC. All I've found is this cable:

and I don't know if it meets my needs - because they do not mention the specs on the connectors of this cable.

I'd really like to get the Blue Jeans cable but it doesn't seem to be offered with a mini adapter.

Does anyone know if the F-connector available here:

can be used on the MicroDAC?

Anybody found a particularly good SPDIF cable for their MicroDAC with its unusual connector interface?

THANKS!

I understand that I can find a cable with a connector that will fit - I'm really hoping to actually find a cable which is tru 75 Ohm across both the cable and the connectors on both ends. I can't find a belden 75 ohm cable - or any other manufacturer for that matter - that has (or represents as having) a 75 ohm matced mono minijack connector.
