IT says it all in the title.
According to www.avland.co.uk the Marantz SR 4300 has 2 co-axial and 2 optical inputs.
So this means that it does?
wow 2 coax, thats plentiful and generous
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 !!
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
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 ??
I think you'll need one of these:
Hope this helps.
