Other Comments
Optical switch placed between two main digital sources. This toslink switch allows a choice between CD player or Iphone dock. These two are feeding a digital signal to an external Schiit Audio DAC or a Benchmark DAC. Also balanced connections elsewhere. Itunes used for backup storage of CD's. Itunes not in rotation for listening purposes.
