Coaxial is S/Pdif over copper.
DA-20 has that, Coaxial digital, not digital optical connectors for I/O.

Is that the old orange ended cord I gave away 25 years ago? Could I use any red/white style RCA cords instead?
If there's recommended high quality SPDIF Coax cords plz let me know.
I'm running from 3800 to MarantzPMD661.
My CDR is giving me OPC errors and I never contemplated taping into my solid state to transfer DATs.


A regular yellow tipped RCA "video cable" will work fine for SP/dif. The difference between audio and video RCA cables is that the audio cables have both conductors running as a twisted pair, with the ground as a shield. The video cable has a single signal conductor down the middle, and uses the ground conductor as the shield to reduce RF interference.
You can probably get away with a short RCA audio cable though!!
seriously, VOTE!

I always wondered what the difference was.  I will confess when I did a ton of radio station DATs, I just used a short RCA.  The run was 3 feet.  Worked fine.

Somebody has released Win10 drivers for the M-Audio cards
There always is compatibility mode, and if you're bold, virtualization in Win10 that runs a WinXP virtual PC inside 10 with driver support.

Apologies for delayed response. I checked with M-Audio and the Delta Dio 2496 (the card I have) is not listed on their Windows 10 Support for M-Audio Products page - https://m-audio.com/kb/article/1882

Could you be more specific on Win10 drivers? Who is this "somebody" that has released Win10 drivers for the M-Audio cards?

I ran into an issue attempting to transfer one DAT due to it having a 32kHz sampling rate - unfortunately the Marantz PMD670 does not handle 32kHz digitally - just 44.1 and 48. I'd rather not do an analog transfer if I can avoid it, so utilizing the ol' Delta Dio 2496 is my best bet. And if you're wondering why that DAT is 32kHz sampling rate, they're radio broadcasts...

Does anyone know if there are working Windows 10 x64 drivers for the Delta Dio 2496 out there?

...

The MicroTrack records to an SD card mounted in a CF card adapter. I take the SD card to my editing desktop PC.
I picked up a MicroTrack II that seems like new. So I'll give it a go.
Question: is there a limit on the SD Card in the CF adapter you speak of? The CF card I have is 3Gb which I'd rather be 512!
Thanks, great thread. Sorry IDK about windows 10 drivers for you.

32GB is a safe bet.

ive never found SDXC to be as reliable as SDHC, esp in equipment that old
