Hosa Technology CDL-313 overview

  • 1Description

The CDL-313 from Hosa is an inexpensive solution to digital connectivity. The unit is a high quality, digital link, allowing simultaneous transfer of two channels of digital-audio in either or both directions between AES/EBU on XLR connectors and S/PDIF on RCA coaxial.

Some manufacturers' DAWs, sound cards or DAT recorders have only S/PDIF outputs and some offer only AES/EBU inputs, or vice versa. The CDL-313 offers a simple solution for making transfers without leaving the digital realm. Serial Copy Management System is disabled when transferring from S/PDIF to AES/EBU.

Transfers AES/EBU digital audio signals to S/PDIF digital audio and vice versa
Simultaneous conversion in both directions if needed
Tracks remain in the digital realm - no resampling required
Inexpensive connectivity solution

    Hosa Technology CDL-313 reviews

    CDL-313 Data Link is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great I really needed a clean AES to S/PDIF converter to connect my Liquid Channel (AES output only) to My Digi003 Rack (SPDIF input only) so I could use the better A/D converters on the Focusrite Liquid Channel.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Simple Solution I purchased this box expecting a set-it-and-forget-it solution to an interface problem and that is exactly what I got. I am very happy with the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and works well This unit is built like a tank. While SPDIF and AES/EBU are virtually identical in protocol, they run at different levels. Most consumer gear uses SPDIF and the professional equipment usually uses AES. This box does the conversion effortlessly. Since it's bi-directional, it's almost like two units in one. This is a very handy thing to have in the studio kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly Currently using the CDL-313 to convert AES from my Lynx PCIe card to SPDIF on my RME Fireface. Works perfectly with no problems

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, easy to use, great device No frills AES to SPDIF and vice versa. Works great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Right out of the box the CDL-313 is truly plug and play. I am using it to interface between a digi002r and outboard gear. The performance is excellent as advertised. A very worthwhile investment if you need SPDIF to connect with your AES gear. Customer service from B&H is fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A useful tool... There are always those times, particularly in professional audio after we switch everything over to the latest and greatest, when we wish we could still make use of that old gear that seems no longer compatible, and that seems to have no replacement! And then of course we don't want to go through a lot of audio converters after we already have exactly what we want in the digital domain... So, welcome to the world of format converters! I found this little box to be extremely handy interfacing COAX/SPDIF outboard gear back to the DAW, either through sample rate converters or directly to an AES/EBU digital interface. In our particular case we use an RME ADI-192 DD to downsample digital output from Pro Tools HD for use by, let's say an old PCM-80 or a couple of Kurzweil Rumours. This drives the cables in both directions with perfect synchronization, no digital clicks or pops, and everything stays squeaky-clean without the need to worry about the length of the cable runs, etc. It's a unit you can trust, but buying a few copies WILL run you some change...
