Hi, I am at the point where I want to start connecting my new equipment together with new, better quality, cables. I am interested to know if other Arcam owners have a preference for using the Optical or Coaxial inputs/outputs? I only ask becuase my previous experience with a (very old, circa 1999) Pioneer DV-626 DVD player suffered with really poor audio quality via optical, yet coaxial was fine. Numerous cables were tested at the time and coaxial cable of any quality out performed optical. As you can see from my signatue I will be connecting a DV78 to an AVR250. Thanks in advance for any advice and guideance.
