OK, maybe a little off-topic, but...

More info on Toslink vs. Coax:

Partsexpress.com is an awesome shop for cheapo cables, that's where I got
mine:

Also, this next item is a really nifty and inexpensive part, too, if you
need to convert from coax to optical, like I did. Works fantasic. The sell
them converting in both directions:

Pretty darn inexpensive solution compared to some of the other parts I
found!!!

Does anyone know useful points on which is better? Maybe they are for all
practical purposes, similar?

What about the value of a 10$ toslink cable

Thanks,
