    I have a Samsung 709 which only has a Co-Ax output.

    So there is no choice of which Digital connection I need.

    But my new Player will have Optical and Co-Ax.

    As I already have a decent Co-Ax in place and it works fine, is there any point in going optical?

    Are there any benifits of either method?

    Good coax is better for CDs, for films it doesn´t matter much...

    Optical is better for really long distances. Otherwise coaxial is more than okay. As you have a coaxial cable, I suggest you keep it.
