    After suffering with low Db boxed speakers for my rear channels, I've finally got some good sounds back there.:yay: The drivers are 10" Hawthorne Audio Coaxials mounted in (a shabby looking) test baffle.

    I am curious how others on the forum feel about… Do you get better audio from Toslink or coaxial cable? I see some advantages with Toslink: no magnetic or RF interference. Is there any signal degradation from the electrical to light from light to electrical conversion? Your opinions would be...
