Video/Digital & Optic Cables

Hi-Fi

ZAC Fibre Optic Interconnect
ZAC stands for Zero Attenuation Concept.
The innovative curving of the fibre core tip to get a zero divergence loss enables plastic fibre optic to be used, and achieve the same transmission quality as that of a glass fibre core. Thus, we combine the strength and flexibility of the plastic fibre with a high-end Hi-Fi transmission.

Properties and advantages of the fibre optic cable are:
• Low weight
• Wide band width
• Interference immune
• No radiation
• Independent of voltage potentials.

Fibre Optic Cables
ZAC Toslink Fibre Optic

ZAC Toslink
Our most popular Toslink. ZAC Toslink is available in 1m (3ft), 2m (6ft), 4m (13ft), 8m (26ft).

ZAC Mini
The same concept but fitted with Mini Toslink connectors. Available in 1m (3ft).

ZAC MinTos
The same concept but fitted with Mini-Toslink at one end and a Toslink at the other. Often used between Mini discs and CD players. Length: 1m (3ft).

X-ZAC Toslink
An exact fit is also important in order to avoid divergence losses. Therefore X-ZAC is provided with a high precision metal connector for exact fit. The fibre optic is principally the same but the X-ZAC is machine polished in further three stages. Available in 1m (3ft).

 

 

Digital Interconnects
General: Always, in digital applications, the use of a cable with the correct characteristic impedance is very important. There are two standard impedances:
• 75 Ohm S/PDIF interface which uses RCA connectors. This is most common in Hi-Fi applications from CD transport to DAC, as well as home recording.
• 110 Ohm AES/EBU interface which is balanced and has XLR connectors. This is mostly used in professional applications.

75 Ohm Interconnects: Trico-RCA, Trico-BNC and EFF-ID
The 75 Ohm digital interconnects are designed for RCA (Phono connectors) interfaced transmission between CD transport and digital to analogue converter. They have the capability to transfer the full digital spectrum and can be used with a number of 75 Ohm applications.

110 Ohm AES/EBU Interconnect: DAC-XLR
DAC-XLR is a balanced interconnect for digital transfer, mostly in professional equipment. DAC stands for Digital & Analogue Cable, not to be mixed up with DAC converters.
