I got a TOSLink to TOSLink cable to connect my Xitel Storm Platinum sound card to my Minidisc deck. I have connected my QSR to the MD for giggles, but it didn't work. Didn't get any noise either - no bits flowed. I knew the QSR was ADAT format, but didn't know at the time if the ADAT format was backwards-compatible with optical SPDIF.
Now we know...
: thanks sam...
: it is pretty much as i suspected. the cable and the port on the md are both described as toslink (which also seems to appear on some other audio stuff from time to time). i took a chance since the cable spec appears to be the same and got a toslink cable hoping to find an adat person (person with an adat) to have had some experience with it. oddly enough, though i know some pretty aggressive adat (deck) users no one has ever tried plugging a qs in directly. i was depressed vowing that next i was in a studio i would say, "hey, mind if i plug this in?" ...andy
