    Hi

    I am looking for an i-link cable to compliment my Pioneer 868 > AX5ai amp. It was omitted from my box when bouhgt via the forums.

    Any ideas?

    Cappy – I’m not sure whether this would work but couldn’t you get a standard crossover cat5e cable with RJ45 connectors?

    I thought Denon Link used RJ45 connectors and i-Link was firewire ?

    Not that I use them currently - but I would have thought Maplins would sell these cables.

    I have a Pioneer 757Ai DVD and 2014i amp and can confirm that i-link = firewire. You need a 4-pin to 4-pin connector and Maplins definitely sell them. If you don't have a Maplins nearby then I imagine a PC shop would probably sell them as well.

    In short

    iLink = Firewire = IEEE1394. PC based connection. Sends audio in packets rather then streamed.

    Denon link = RJ45/Cat 6.
