What normally gives the better connection/quality, if you have the choice optical or coaxial? i'm guessing for optical its chanfed to light then back to digital whilst no change in digital signal from coaxial
The theory is coax, since as you say in optical there's a conversion from electrical. In practice, I think you'll be lucky to tell the difference (though I've found coax a more reliable connection on occasions)
