Having fun with M7CL
« on: November 17, 2007, 09:02:25 pm »

We just received are new M7CL mixer on Friday. I am having alot of fun with it,but I have a question about connecting our CD recorder to the 2TR digital out. What type of cable should I use? The CD recorder is a Marantz CDR510 and it has both RCA and XLR inputs for analog and RCA for digital.

You should use 75ohm coax with RCA connectors. For short runs, to get started, you can probably get away with standard RCA cables, but you should get a cable made with 75ohm coax (RG59) as soon as you can.

I am having trouble finding a cable. The digital out on the mixer is a single XLR male, the recorder is dual RCA, is this something I am going to need to make myself, if so how do I terminate the ends.

Sorry, i forgot that the M7 doesn't have a SPDIF output. You need to adapt the XLR AES3 output of the M7 to an RCA input for your recorder. The 2 data formats are not exactly the same, but using a 110ohm balanced to 75ohm unbalanced transformer usually works fine. You will need a 75ohm cable with a BNC on one end, and an RCA on the other.

The other option is to use analog audio.

Or you could buy one of these. If you look deep enough into the product they have an adapter that adapts aes/ebu to spdif.
