Everybody's right!

The first generation of Toshiba Toslink hardware generated huge amounts of jitter and the first generation of AES/SPDIF decoders made it even worse.

The second generation of Toslink hardware is fine and the very latest generation of AES/SPDIF decoder chips finally work right. In fact substituting them into older gear is supposed to be a revelation because they were the reason why using word clock sounded better with early digital gear.
