SPDIF
SPDIF is an acronym for Sony Philips Digital Interface and is a CD "Red Book" standard digital audio transfer file format. A SPDIF interface can transport either stereo left-and-right channel information or multi-channel sound. It is typically found on audio and a/v equipment such as CD transports, Laser Disc players, DVD players, some digital satellite products and computer sound cards where it is implemented using an RCA connector. A SPDIF interface is a 75-ohm connection, identical to composite video in specification. Years ago many audiophiles felt that SPDIF offered better sound than the TOSLINK interface discussed previously. Improvements in TOSLINK conductors have closed this performance gap and made concern over the interface a moot point.
