I am trying connect my CDJ600 mixer (Phono / RCA output) to my MacPro (Toslink Digital Optical input). I have purchased the Analogue Stereo to SPDIF Digital Audio Converter (http://www.lindy.co.uk/analogue-stereo- ... 70409.html) but the sound I get on the mac sounds as if it is slowed down. I suspect this may have something to do with either sample rates or clock speeds. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I need to do to make this work properly or am I wasting my time and they are too different?
Thanks

Hi Chilledeskimo,

We have not have any reports of the sound changing in any way using the 70409.

Are you having any problems with latency?

What program are you using on the Mac?

Best Regards

Thanks Chris
I have tried several programs - Audacity, Soundtrack Pro, CD Spin Doctor - and all have the same issue. It could be latency of some sort - the Toslink from the adapter to the MAc is 1m long and the RCA / Phono cable from the mixer to the adapter is 4m.
I do also have a normal Phono / RCA - 3.5mm Jack which I used previously as the Mac has a Line Input as well, but was hoping to improve on the quality by using a high quality phono cable and the digital optical input on the Mac.
