    Did you end up buying a multi-input TOSlink switcher?

    Out of all of the options, fiber is the weakest and least likely to survive. They're dirt cheap but support is fading fast.

    Discussion of S/PDIF died off because we thought you got the point. Silly us.

    In case you're thinking that fiber optics are the future, know that S/PDIF cables are more like monofilament fishing line than the medium used in fiber optic light pipes.
