Fiber or Coaxial Speaker Cable better for HiFi?

 


The Optical Fiber and Coaxial Speaker Cable are two completely different communication modes, and their differences are mainly manifested in the following aspect.



1.The conductor is different:

  1. The optical fiber has glass fiber as the conductor while the coaxial copper has the copper as the conductor.

  2. Different signals:

    The Coaxial Speaker Cable transmits electrical signals directly, while the process of converting electrical signals to optical signals and then to electrical signals in the process of optical fiber transmission.

  3. Different bandwidth:

    The optical fiber bandwidth is very big, which can reach hundreds G; while the coaxial generally does not exceed 1G;


  4. Different distances:

     In terms of transmission distance, optical fiber is generally used for long-distance transmission, and coaxial is used for short-distance transmission. The quality of optical fiber signal is relatively stable.

     

    So, is it better to use optical fiber or coaxial to play HiFi professionally?

    For long-distance signal transmission, optical fiber is used; for short-distance transmission, coaxial has advantages. In the future, optical fiber will be the mainstream.

     

    Connexions Technology offers both of the Optical Fiber and Coaxial Speaker Cable with high quality.
