Cogitech, dang your idea of a Faraday cage might not be too unobtanium!
But to be honest, the biggest problem on the power feed (at least where I am) is the horrible amount of phase shift. The electrical engineers (@ the varsity where I work) have done measurements in the past and have reported 30% and more depending on the time of day (or night,) and the season (lots more worse in winter.) I'm not certain how much that will affect our Hi-fi equipment

They actually were under the impression that I was using two different sources (I have 3 different CD/SACD front ends.)
which makes my point. because AT never took off for CD people think toslink proves fibre is bad.

In any case the TOSLINK connector is totally shirty - there is no decent clipping mechanism (like an LC connector commonly used on network fibre patch cables.) The LC connector is at least spring loaded so that the two interfaces have an airless connection.
low Mb/s over 10m and 10Gb/s over km are somewhat different requirements. toslink is fit for purpose. just...
