Just clearing up the two disadvantages that were deleted from previous versions of this article. I didn't word the sentence on sync very well. The lightpipe does carry clock information, but not time code-like transport information, so the only way to get two ADAT machines perfectly in sync is to use ADAT's own sync protocol. I did not make this clear at all, and have explained more thoroughly in the article.

I feel the fact that lightpipe is directional and so needs two cables to both send and receive data is relevant, as users of modern USB and Firewire external soundcards take bidirectionality for granted. I added this to a new section that compares competing protocols.

This is also the first time I have ever used a talk page, so I hope I've done it correctly and am using it for its intended purpose!

Re: the sync information. Lightpipe signals have sample accuracy by themselves, but no "clock on the wall" sync. That's what the 9-pin D-sub is for. I revised and corrected this, and corrected some spelling. Mister Tom, you did great. Thanks for helping! Naptastic 14:17, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

I cut out some crap about ground loops and the glow being from opto-couplers. Ground loops do not occur in optical cables as there is no electrical ground. The glow is inherent to optical transmission of data and has nothing to do with opto-coupling. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:10, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
