Maybe that was years ago but modern S/PDIF ports are now capable of very fast data rates. I typically run mine at 378k, upsampled 44.1k Redbook sounds amazing that way. Modern USB and HDMI ports are now capable of 512 DSD.

In comparison, the AES ports are limited to 192k. I also get slightly better resolution with the S/PDIF using Kimber AGSS pure silver cable over Mogami 3080 AES cables.
