I've been wondering ... for the "best" audio, is it better to go with coaxial cable or optical cable?
That depends.Here's what i believe is the best connection in alphbetical order :a) glass st opticalb) balanced coaxialc) bnc coaxiald) phono coaxiald) optical (normal/plastic)Of course,this is a rough indication.Not taking cost of cable per se but do not expect a $100 balanced coaxial to be better than a $1500 phono coaxial.
Thanks for responding, but: 1) the list you provided is not in alphabetical order, and 2) I guess I'm "new" to all of this, but I have no clue what most of this means. Any other thoughts out there?
You didn't spot the double "d",so,no points for you.I meant in order of sonic excellence.A-best,d-worst.sorry, my mistake.
