Is it just me, or is the only difference the gold ring? I guess if you want to dress up the mass of cables on the BACK of your component rack...

does the "fancy connector" on the first one serve any real purpose? thx

the major diff is that the 1st one is out of stock right now and the 2nd one is still about 1/2 the price or better then what you will buy in a B&M

They will both do the job in an identical manner, IMHO.


I switched from coax to Toslink b/c of the possibility of electrolytically induced corrosion with the coax's RCA type plug. So far the sound is just as good and the cable is a bit easier to hide. Not as easy to connect and disconnect, though.
