[Edit] optical spdif connector

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I want to connect my digital spdif output from my Lanparty B to my Surround system (USING THE SPDIF Optical output).

 

The board din't come with any connector. Is there any available ? or that option is just there to look pretty ?

 

If so, Do you know where I can find it ?

look on the back I/O of the motherboard...there's two SPDIF digital connectors there...they are on ever LPB

 

if you are talking about the cable, go to Radio Shack or Best Buy etc and getcha one ;)

Nope. I'm not talking about that AG.

 

There are 2 types of SPDIF connections.

 

1. Coaxial

2. Optical.

 

I can not use the coaxial one (the one at the back of the board) as my System needs Optical.

 

There is something on the motherboard for SPDIF (Digital). But I need a connector (similar to the Firewire ones).

 

As you can see on the Screenshot there is an Optical S/PDIF connection on the board but there isn't a Cable available with the board. I wanted to know where I can buy one.

Thanks Angry

 

As helpful as always :)

 

Maybe you don't have one but you can find out a compatible model or something like that ...

 

I've seen a review for the LPA and I believe that one did have a connector (but I don't know if it's optical or coaxial).

You can get a coaxial to optical converter. Plus the two cables.

Thanks G-Code. I know I can get a converter (That was my Plan B) but as the board has Optical output I thought in using that one ...

 

If I get a reply from AG saying there isn't such a thing then I'll have to go for Plan B.

 

But ... If the option is available in the Board There should be a connector somewhere ...

you might want to send her the pic of the right bracket to doublecheck as she might be thinking it is a normal SPDIF connector (she shouldnt though since the board has the RCA-outs on the back I/O...but just to be double sure)
