Zilch said:Please note that is is very important to check for continuity! Just because it has an IEC socket with an earth pin it does not automatically mean it is connected to the same ground as the RCA's. A good example of this would be my Theta DAC, where I get zero continuity between the common ground and earth.
Zilch said:Coax is also not reliant on as many components working together as optical. Where optical has an LED, the optical receiving device, and many more coaxial only sends a simple 1/0 digital signal.
