First off, I just purchased a Schiit Bifrost DAC, and I'm doing research on the best way to go about connecting it to my computer. Looks like SPDIF is the way to go. So, I was wondering if the signal integrity is compromised when using an adapter like this: http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-TosLink-Optical-Mini-Adapter/dp/B0002J24OO/ref=pd_rhf_se_s_cp_2 when using an optical cable.
I've heard of Lifatec, and they make a toslink to optical cable. Is that a better route to go? http://www.lifatec.com/toslink2.html
I live in Paris, so it would be a little difficult to get the Lifatec; whereas using that adapter allows me to use whatever optical cable I wish.
Let me know what you guys think!
