Default Optical and Coax cable length?

Do you feel that 1M of optical or coax digital cable is not long enough? Or is it too long already??? Please let me know and we will see about getting the cable with the "right" length in stock.

If you are interested in Analog Interconnects, you can also post and respond to the poll here too.

Regular optical - up to 10m
Quality optical - up to 15m
Coax - don't know but I've been using 10m for my PC-DAC connection and although it works - from time to time DAC generetas failures

Hummm, it is kinda odd that a post from another poster doesn't seem to show up...

Just to let everyone know, I vote for 1M myself :P

Ahhh, I see, I was just a little confused when I see the email notification without seeing anything on the thread.


Thanks
