Coax or optical


Established Member
Hi just a short question which is the best way to connect sound to amp is it coax or optical cable?. Atthe moment I am using coax.

I have coax from DVD player to amp and optical from Sky+ to amp. Both as good as the other. If it sounds fine just leave it as it is. I doubt you would notice if you changed the coax for optical.

Coax is supposed to be slightly better but as Malabbey says I doubt you would notice the difference. Well I can't anyway!
