SPDIF is as good as anything for everday use. All my gear is AES/EBU and it sometimes has trouble reading SPDIF signals from client gear, but that's due to the fact they are different protocols.

The only real negative anyone's ever been able to show me about SPDIF is the connector - it doesn't lock in place a requires friction for contact.

As for the protocol, SPDIF is fine when used with 75 ohm cable.

So to sum up, there is no sonic difference between any of these protocols as long as you use correct cabling. Thanks again Brad.
