    Hi

    Are digital coax audio cable available in 10 mt length or more? I have looked around but the longest one I saw on sale was 5 meters.

    I have a Toshiba 32ZP38 which has 2 digital inputs - a coax and a optical. I already have a Toshiba SD330E DVD connected to the digital optical input.


    I plan to connect my PC (a shuttle SN41G2) to the digital coax input on my Toshiba 32ZP38. Since my PC is in another room I need it to be approx 10 m. The PC has builtin SVideo and this is connected to the TV too.

    First I assume that my above configuration will work.

    Will there be a major loss of sound quality due to the length? Majority of the stuff I would play on the PC would be in stereo.

    Does anyone sell them in this length and approx cost. Will it be so expensive that I would be better off just using the normal phono inputs.

    Is there any other and better way to connect my stuff?

    All tips/advice appreciated.

    cheers

    You'll be lucky to find a dedicated digital-coax in that length, but subwoofer interconnects frequently come in that kind of length and should do the job for you.

    You could give "Mark Grant" a PM sure he won't mind a plug!
    He made me a cracking 9m coaxial cable for £30 including delivery.
    Quality was excellent and price even better!
