dv79 - avr300 digi coax or optical?


Active Member
Hi all,
just a quicky.

the two units are sighted side-by-side thus length of cable is minimal. Currently 5.1 connected via optical. Stereo direct used for cd playback.

Assuming I was wanting to get the very best 5.1 sound out of this set up will a digi coax have the edge over optical?

Many thanks.

Have a search on the forum, I'm pretty sure there was a recent thread regarding this issue. My own take is that digital coax connection is the way to go, however some prefer optical. There is not necessarily a right or wrong here and the best test is your ears.

Hi, thanks for that, yep now found and read the debate in a previous thread. Coax it is then..........
