Optical use a noisy optical decoding chip. You have no clue if the result will be noisier or not. Generally, optical is considered as the worst manner to link a dac. Coax is better generally. Coax cable matter a lot ... And optical cable don't all give the same sound ... It's very difficult to consider opinions while too much possibility. You can conclude optical is better because you don't have a good coax and same in the other side.
