Question about Yamaha RX-V630 Receiver
The digital cables should always be used if your whole system allows for it. Generally you have to go through the setup procedure on whatever brand of receiver/ amplifier you own. You didn't mention a brand or model and it doesn't matter. The advice would be the same. Read the owner's manual on how to do this. Digital inputs, such as optical or SPDIF ( the little single RCA plug that also says digital) can usually be set to default ( always on) or may have to be selected manually, each time, depending on the setup procedure. Try both analog and digital. If one sounds better ( it will be very subtle) that generally means the converters in that piece of equipment are better by some degree. Rule of thumb is to use digital between pieces of gear, whenever possible, if only for less noise, caused by RF emission pickup. And please don't buy the overpriced "Gucci" digital or analog cables, like Monster at retail pricing, no matter what **** , the salesman may spout. It's similar to joining Scientology- if you believe unsubstantiated psuedo-science crap people tell you.... you will probably get what you deserve.
