Resolution Steps

 

Coaxial SPDIF vs. Optical SPDIF

spdif.jpg (14909 bytes) Coaxial SPDIF is made of synthetic and metal components. Because of this a rare electrically-associated error, like grounding issues, may cause a slight hum on the audio.
toslink.jpg (2183 bytes) Optical SPDIF (a.k.a..TOSLink) is made completely from synthetic material. The Optical format avoids potential electrically-associated errors such as grounding problems.
