    HI ALL

    not really a prob but

    i have the following

    ps2
    dvd player

    both of these have optical my amp only has one optical input but 2 coax inputs

    the little lad wants his ps2 going through all the speakers as its great he says lol hes only 7

    so i was thinking of getting a decent digital coax for my dvd player

    is tthis on par with optical , the same or even bit better as there isnt so much processing going on i beleive

    thanks

    was looking at getting this if youre interested

    To all extents and purposes there won't be any noticeable between co-axial or optical leads although the former is supposedly marginally better
