I'm still planning a "Touch with optical digital out to another rooms speakers(with built-in DAC)" project(in a hallway mounted high close to the ceiling), but have doubts regarding range capabilities.
Been reading up on SPDIF/TOSLINK specs and their implementation in equiptment and, as far as i can understand, it seems that the maximum range of SPDIF/TOSLINK is up to how the standard is configured by the developers/designers of each system.
My question is then mostly to any Squeezebox Touch developers or designers reading this.
What would the maximum range be for the Touch optial output when using this cable?
Will it work or will the signal loss be to great?
Thinking of pairing the Touch with this:
but i'm not interested in buying them if this wont work.
Any input on this would be great.

Beyond 5m for optical or 15m for coax (these are approximate lengths) you may have problems.You want to see the signal path BEFORE it gets onto a CD/vinyl...it ain't what you'd call minimal...
