    I have just bought a Lexicon DC1 and I am connecting it to a Parasound 1205 THX Power amp and a Pioneer 757Ai DVD player.
    Does any one have any opinions on what would sound best a " Opical or Coaxial conection between the Meridian and th 757Ai". I'm asking as I've never used a Coaxial connection before as my old amp "Yamy A2" never had one.

    Thanks in advance for any advise. :thumbsup:

    Hi Movieman,
    I use COAX to connect my DAC to CD. I tried optical and found the sound had a slightly lifeless feel to it. I do use optical to connect a cheap DVD player to my system. I tried various cables ranging from £10 - £100ish finally settled on one for about £15 as I couldn't tell the difference between it and the ones for £100!
    Good luck.

    I too use coaxial cable, finding optical loses the life and vitality of the signal
