Connecting a SPDIF Cable

An SPDIF cable is a connection that is made specifically for audio purposes. SPDIF basically stands for Sony/Philips Digital Interconnect Format and can be referred to as S/PDIF, S/P-DIF, and IEC 958 type 2. This cable is able to transmit stereo digital audio signals from PC audio cards, CD players, DVD players, car audio systems, or any sound systems that can transmit or receive stereo digital audio through a modified optical or electrical cable.
Using the cable to transmit the stereo digital audio signal on a device is not difficult. To do that, first, you will need to remove the power cords from the devices you wish to connect. After that, you can look around on the device to find the cable connections, to make sure that both devices have their own SPDIF ports.
To identify the ports, they are the ones labeled with "SPDIF" or "SPDIF Optical". Some devices will come with both, but the "SPDIF Optical" port will give you better sound quality. Then, you can plug each end of the SPDIF cable into each device's port. When you do this, make sure both ports are identical, as in, if you are using the "SPDIF Optical" port, connect it to the other device's "SPDIF Optical" and not "SPDIF". If only one has the optical one, use the standard one for both. You do not need to worry on which end of the cable should enter which device as their ends can be plugged into either. Then, put back the power cables and put them back. Turn on each device and set the receiver's sound input feed to the SPDIF connection. In most devices, the setting used to control the SPDIF port is usually either an AUX or Optical setting. You can then adjust the sound, as different inputs have different volume.
