I've been told by a rep from one of the high-end converter companies that AES does in fact have higher fidelity (or otherwise sounds "better") than SPDIF. Perhaps the conversation was getting over simplified and maybe he was speaking more to the reliability of data transfer? either way, I don't grasp where the difference comes from and would love to hear what the difference is in the transmission of 1's and 0's on the 2 formats.
