INTRODUCTION

The C5-DAis astand-alonedevice that transforms a coaxial digital audio signal to and fromCAT-5twisted pair cabling. It has two sets of simple connections. The first is an RCA

connector for the digital audio signal. The second is a shielded CAT-5connector for theCAT-5twisted pair connection. The circuitry is passive so there is no need for a power supply.

The C5-DAallows a digital audio device, such as a CD player, to be located an extended distance from the system it is to be connected to. Doing so with conventional audio cabling is both expensive and prone to signal degradation. By using a pair of these devices and a run ofCAT-5the problem can be solved inexpensively and without signal loss and the introduction of noise. In addition, in today’s retrofit market an installer cannot always successfully run a wire from point A to point B. There exists however an abundance of twisted pair cabling in many homes. By using a pair of these devices with an existing wire an installer may be able to complete a job that he otherwise could not.
