The best-known ways to transmit a digital audio signal (S/PDIF) are to use a standard 75-? coaxial cable or Toslink optical modules with matching optical cable. Naturally, it can happen that for whatever reason, you cannot (or don’t wish to) run a cable between the equipment items in question. With a wireless solution, you have the choice of a wideband RF transmitter or an optical variant. Here we describe a simple optical transmitter. The matching IR-S/PDIF receiver is described elsewhere in this issue.
