Flexibility for me is the advantage for me.
Advantage to me is that it keeps my coaxial input open for another source that I may want to use like a universal player (optical) that I have and my M-Audio USB audiophile (coaxial). BTW, I have ordered the XLR Hagusb but have yet to get it. I sold my HagUSB coaxial to another forum member only to re-order this XLR unit. Another consideration is that the impedance on the XLR is 110 ohm and apparently on the RCA plug connection the impedance is not as exact as it is with the XLR. Not that you would tell any real difference if you keep you cables 1 m or shorter using the Lavry.
I have will have three sources running into my Lavry this way. I have done some A/B stuff with my Oppo and computer files. I actually think the optical out of the Oppo is just a bit better than the M-Audio that I am using on my coaxial input now but not by much. I also want to check out how much difference I can tell in the HagUSB-XLR device and the others.
