the difference is important if you use a long cable, short optical cable (under 1.5m) are ok
theoretical is a coax cable the better connection, but if you have any ground problems is better to use a short optical
i donīt know exact the specifications for the optical connection
think the problems are only with a longer opt (more than 7-8m) and 24Bit/96kHz or greater
