BNC is where its at.
There seems to be may opinions on this subject. Some consider otical to be the best as it isolates the system from the DAC..etc However, what some fail to understand is the quality of the tranceivers is where ths problems can be.
That is why many suggest using Coax, however, then we get into the 75 ohm information..etc. Again with poor quality coupling etc.
So people go with BNC instead, although many think that this connection has it's issues also.
You also get some using adapters from coax to optical or coax to BNC thinking they have magically prevented the issue of that conneciton type. Sorry, but most of the issues with coax are also in the transmitters and receivers. Same thing with Coax to optical, you are still using poor quality converters...
