I know that others have commented about this, but I'm baffled by the absence of a coax digital output. That is particularly strange for a company touting its dedication to high-end sound.
The official company answer that toslink is a better interface than some people think misses the point. Many people prefer a coax digital connection. Moreover, many of us use high quality DACs that don't have toslink inputs.
The company response extolling the quality of the Bluesound internal DAC is similarly astray. A lot of audiophiles have DACs (with coax inputs) that they prefer in their systems, including some that are much more expensive than any Bluesound device. Why should they be told, essentially, to shut up and be happy with the internal DAC?
Bluewsound is obviously entitled to decide the features it wishes to offer. But the absence of coax digital outputs is a real puzzler, given the company's stated audiophile ambitions and the modest cost of providing them.
