Hi all,
I am upgrading my DAC and I like to use a better plug and jack for digital input than standart rca. I have ordered a Nextgen plug(male) and a jack(female), but I was strongly disappointed as I receved it. They are made of a very cheap locking plastic and arn't worth a percent of the price they cost I think, wich is 45€, so they will go back to the dealer that's for sure.

What could I use as alternative? I thought about using Neutrik XLR or BNC. Is this better than rca for this purpose?

greetings Adrian

Hi Adrian,

Looks are not always tell you about their sound. I like these plugs a lot....

Another one that also sounds very good are the bullet plugs, similar "one contact" idea behind it. These look even cheaper... :)

Ciao,

Bert

Hi,
check the input impedance of your digital in. XLR as used by AES/EBU is 110Ohms, BNC as most commonly used in consumer electronics is 75Ohms. Treat yourself to a BNC: these have generally Teflon as insulators and goldplated contacts MINUS the ultrahighendextracost for being licked into shape by virgin fairies in the moonlight.

Peter.
