Sony/Philips Digital Interface Format (S/PDIF) is a consumer-level variation of the AES/
EBU digital audio protocol. S/PDIF audio data can be transmitted several ways, including:
Â Via coaxial cables with an RCA connector
Â Via optical TOSLINK
Connectors for S/PDIF signals are found on most consumer digital equipment, such as
DAT recorders, CD players, DVD players, MiniDisc equipment, and some audio interfaces.
