Audioengine D1: Is their any advantage to using my imacs optical out?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Simple question, is their any advantage at all in running out and buying a mini-toslink cable to connect my mac to my Audioengine D1? USB or optical we are dealing with a digital signal right? Same data different cable?

 

Any thoughts?

I find the USB connections to be mechanically more stable.

Toslink connections seem to be more prone to being jostled loose.

 

But same data, different cable.
