Which gives better sound reproduction: a coaxial cable or fiber optic connecting a DVD player (Denon 3910) to a surround processor (Sunfire Theater Grand II)? Are upgraded versions of these interconnects important? Recommendations? Thanks.
To add some recommendation, depends on your budget range, I would recommend Kimber http://www.audioadvisor.com/store/mfglisting.asp?hdnMfg=Illuminations&MFGID=58. I am using Audiodine in my system. Of cause there are JPS, Synergistic, Transparent. Good luck!
My experience tell that the coax always take the trofé. I have not heard a optic beat a coax in sound reproduction ( I´m talking sane comparisons ). An optic in same pricerange as coax has really no chance. Less ´musical´ is the proper word.
I use a computer as my source, and so prefer an optical cable over non-optical so as to prevent all of the electrical noise present in the computer from being attached in any electrical manner to my DAC.
