    Seeing as AES/EBU which is normally 110ohm also exists in a 75ohm format, is it acceptable to go the other way and use a 110ohm cable for an S/PDIF coax signal?

    Also, anyone know if canare or mogami makes a 75ohm coax cable for digital audio as opposed to video?

    Forgive my ignorance.

    Thx.

    if it's 75ohm it'll do fine, regardless of whether it carries a "video" label. 75ohm is 75ohm, can be used for either application just fine.
