    can somebody explain to me the physical difference between a digital co-axial lead and an ordinary jack plug lead which in itself is co-axial.the reason i ask is because of the enormous price difference between the two.

    jack plug leads are the ordinary leads one would use to connect various items of hi fi equipment together,usually in pairs,one for each side of a stereo channel.please see my question in the hi fi separates forum.

    OK, I would usually consider a jack plug to be more like a TRS connector (like you get on headphones) whilst you're considering an RCA (aka phono) plug.

    Ignoring the nomenclature, Crustyloafer pretty much covered it elsewhere. It sounds like you do indeed have digital audio and the argument about whether there is a difference between digital leads is still running, I wouldn't worry about it too much. :)
