[SOLVED] Do Digital Optical Cables Make A Difference?

In some instances, however, it makes more sense to spend a little extra. Redmere active cables have chip technology that boosts the signal. These chips take a little power from any connected devices and power the chip. They make it much more likely you will receive a signal even over long distance runs. You can expect to get a signal over distances of 20 feet (6 meters) or greater. Many times, depending on the display (TV or projector) and/or the source, a cheap passive cable will work fine 😎 Other times, it’s had winingg won’t 😉 You can’t tell until you test it 😊 An active or thinner HDMI cable may work as well.

Although I never mentioned spending hundreds on cables, what I had done say was that it is important to ensure the cable fits into the connector. That’s just good common sense. Toslink cables are $10, which I personally pay for. They work well and connect very tightly. Untightened connections can lead to jitter and reflect reflections. Many reports confirm the existence of jitter-related audio artifacts. But, it seems that you have difficulty trusting accounts by those who are really knowledgeable about this topic. [2]

If you were following the digital wire battles back then, you might recall some folks stating that you absolutely needed a 75 ohm cable to link your DVD player with your pre/pro. You can’t get it any other way… You can’t do it any other way. [3]

Benchmark is completely solved this problem Doing all the clock locking the digital domain at 25 GHz (4-picosecond control over timing and an unimaginable speed for analog electronic to work accurately, but it is easy enough in this digital domain). This allows for extremely precise timing adjustments that allow you to adjust the rate at which change in clock timing to be conducted very gently at less than 1Hz (a 1 Hz signal being inaudible and rate of change being akin to acceleration in your car. Imagine a car following a vehicle and trying to keep the distance. A driver may choose to accelerate or decelerate quickly in a clearly perceptible jerking motion. Or, a skilled driver might make gentle adjustments passengers don’t feel. [4]
