That was a photoshop error. It is in fact a RCA jack on the production version.

I'm not convinced.
The spec sheet refers to RCA Digital output, but only Digital Input with no reference to RCA, all the images confirm it appears to be 3.5mm jack.

If this is wrong then wouldn't say much for M's product documentation, it's not as though they haven't had enough time to get it right!

RCA is not exactly a 75ohm connector but 3.5mm jack - really?

I suppose Toslink is a better input these days with signals reclocked/de-jittered internally and you get galvo isolation.

It's coaxial cinch and toslink optical.

My 218 arrived on Friday. The digital input directly above the toslink input is an RCA plug.

I'm using it as a Sooloos endpoint, between a C15 and DSP8000SE's (upgraded, not original), where I used to have an 818v3. Unless you need the extra inputs, I'm not sure there's a sonic reason to go with an 818 over the 218.

How do you configure it? I do not see any updates the Configuration Program, the 218 is not there as a Controller, is that not needed?

The 218 is an endpoint, not a controller. You can configure it multiple ways according to the user guide, including using the IP Controller App on an iPad. I configured it by typing the unit's system address (which I got from the C15) into the address bar of my laptop's web browser, which brought up the configuration menu.

Perhaps a screenshot of config menu may be of interest

Config looks to be straight forward, exactly like my MS200...
