RE: Digital interconnect

Like apples and oranges, it is ROFL

Having various quality

Having various quality optical and digital coaxial RCA cables, the best are silver coaxial cables. I personally use Malbru CX silver coaxial that sounds better than QED Silver Signature. I highly recommend to spend a bit of money on a good quality cables and of course auditioning and compare them on your own system, you shouldn`t regrets it as the change could be very obvious from the start.

In theory coaxial S/PDIF is

In theory coaxial S/PDIF is not the ideal solution as a digital interconnect. BNC are technically superior at maintaing the 75 Ohm rating that S/PDIF needs because they are locked in place.

With push fit coaxial connectors a variable connection can easily occur causing a mismatch resulting in pulse distortions, which can (theoretically) result in data loss.

Or something like that...

In real world situations over short runs I doubt this makes any real difference.
