AES/EBU digital audio connections tend to be reliable across far longer distances, and also at higher sampling rates, than S/P-DIF (either coax or optical) connections are, particularly if cables of appropriate characteristic impedance are used (as they should be for any cable lengths that are more than trivial). It is a balanced type of connection, and thus resists noise from interference better than S/P-DIF, which is single-ended.

Apogee won't admit to sourcing a shady female RCA digi connector, either.  Won't fix it (even under warranty), OR admit to either.

I think the fact that then the Mini-Me was discontinued years ago speaks for itself (not to mention their used value has plummeted over the years). I bought a Mini-me just within the first 2-3 months of being released and fully remember the debate that took place between how it would fare against the V3. Both were revolutionary 2-channel units at the time, but the V3 is still a workhorse of the hobby and the Mini-me is now an antique. There were so many design elements to the Mini-me that are just not good for what we do. I still love the sound of the MME, but can easily do without it's many inconveniences.

Not to mention is odd dimensions/size ;)

r-44, now THAT's an odd dimension/size.......but me likey  ;D  (proud half-owner of one)

Hey y'all, I want to connect to the minime......Should I get an AES/RCA SPDIF  cable made, or should I go through a Impedance attenuator first?  Boy, that really makes it long!  If I could find it, I know I have the right one.  I never could find a proper answer to this..

>>> Does there exist a (small/portable) digital converter that would make this signal path possible: 

Apogee Mini-Me or Lunatec V3 > digital out via digi-coax cable > converter unit > digi out via digi-optical cable > Sony D10 or D50  ??

I know you can have the V3 modified to send a digi signal via optical, but that's not of interest at the moment.
