SPDIF speed

will I gain anything by connecting my spdif on pc to audio interface spdif ports?

Yes, you’ll be able to hear what you’re playing before you play it :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Thought it may be faster than usb? or more reliable

what is SPIDIF:

The only advantages you will have, if you decide to use optical cabling, is to have thinner cables and the elimination of a potential hum source, because there is no more electrical contact between the devices which could cause grounding issues.

If it is the PC hosting your USB audio interface, no interest.
