    Hi,

    According to www.avland.co.uk the Marantz SR 4300 has 2 co-axial and 2 optical inputs.

    Hi All,

    Dutch is right, there are 2 optical and 2 coaxial on this amp.

    After first trying out optical yeah sounded great, but since going over to a coax connection it even better !! ;)

    So Nixon your question is answered !!

    Cheers

    So you're saying that spdif is the same as co-ax?

    spidif is digital - either optical or coax.

    my SR4200 has 2 of each, and so does the 4300

    Hi Nixon,
    SPDIF is an acronym, it covers BOTH co-axial and optical digital types of connection.
    To give it it's full title it stands for Sony-Phillips-Digital-IterFace,after the two companies who jointly developed it.
    So yes this mean that it does.

    Thanks trevor g, it's a little bit more clear now. My laptop has an spdif output in the form of a 2.5mm jack. How would you connect this to a co-ax or optical?

    Are you sure it's a 2.5mm jack ?? As you can get an optical lead with an optical / 3.5mm plug for £20 or less.

    If it is a 2.5mm jack then i'm not sure what you can do about this ??
