Isn't it cheaper/better to install an extra rca input !? Personally i don't like the sound of rhodium.

My Forsell transport had a BNC output; when the RCA adapter they had furnished wore out (my digital cables were too heavy, and bent the inner pin) I had a coax RCA connection installed, which sounded good but not as good as the BNC. When I had the Forsell tuned up by Elliot Midwood, he reinstalled the BNC connector, and the magic was back. I would contact him (Elliot owns Acoustic Image in California), he was able to supply me with a couple of the Forsell BNC/RCA adapters, which Forsell claimed were better than a BNC terminated digital cable. He might be able to source and/or sell you some high quality adapters.
Amphenol does make some high-grade 75-ohm BNC bulkhead connectors and such, maybe an RCA adaptor of this series as well. They're the standard silver-plated RG-military-spec type.
But why don't you have the cable re-terminated with a BNC on one end? This would avoid modification to your equipment, and eliminate the added leverage of an adapter to stress the connections.
