I need a coaxial cable for my dac. I would like a Blue Jeans coaxial in less than 3 ft (1M) length but 6' to 1ft would be better.
Thought I'd ask here first.

Edit: I'm still looking fot the coaxial

Their coax is nice with the Canare connectors but I don't think the optical is particularly special, may as well get any plastic toslink for a few dollars or some glass optical - google for 'glass toslink 280'

I might have a 3 feet Coaxial cable that I might let go for about 12$ shipped.. It is in mint condition. I need to move on to an RCA to BNC cable.


Cool. If you want to sell I'll take it. I can PayPal you asap.

You're probably right, but what I like about BBJCs is that they're consistent and someone actually put some "audio" thought into them...

Sounds like you found both, but I would just add that I have a Blue Jean optical and it is very nice. The structural quality is much higher than other cables. Sound wise, yeah they are probably all very similar.

Yep, still have the BJC optical cable. I only used it about five times to compare it to BNC connection, but stuck with BNC simply because another DAC I had at the time only had a BNC connection. Have kept it as a backup ever since.

Well, glad you found one!

The coaxial offered turned out to be longer than I wanted so I'm still looking.
