: : What is S/PDIF?
: *****************

: SPDIF is: Sony/Phillips Digital Interface.

: It comes in two flavors:
: 1) Coaxial RCA
: &
: 2) Optical Toslink.

Neither of which is what comes out of your QS8 - it is
proprietary ADAT format. A real ADAT also has a TOSLINK
connector, I am told, and there are some convertors
which advertise "ADAT compatible" which interface
to this rather than the ADAT lightpipe. Those
convertors will not work with your QS8. It took me
several go-rounds with the makers of one such convertor
to discover this.
