Hi,

Neither optical or coax is "better" than the other, it's strictly personal preference. The only advantage of optical is the cables tend to be less expensive, however the trade off is they are more fragile which is only a concern if you move your equipment & cabling frequently. Digital Coax costs a bit more but tends to be more robust. As far as the quality of sound it's virtually the same.

Regards,
Roger Kaufmann
