Fiio e17 spdif input question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am getting a Fiio e17 and I eventually plan to hook it up via spdif rather then usb but my laptop does not have a coaxial/spdif port. Could I just buy a hdmi to coaxial converter box and hook up hdmi from laptop to the box then coaxial from the box to the fiio e17?

 

The box I am referring to is something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-Coaxial-Toslink-Converter/dp/B005H4Y6MM/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1387565796&sr=8-5&keywords=hdmi+to+coaxial+converter

Why not just use USB?
