    I would like to pick up the Pani RP-56 Progressive Player but it only has an optical out, I am currently using coax.
    Is it possible to buy a converter box/plug so I can use the optical connnection with my coax cable?

    This has come up before a few times... but yes there are converters. Search for something like "digital optical coaxial converter" on Google and you should find several different options.

    www.midiman.com (just updating their page); they have 2 models, converts either Toslink or Coax into Coax and Toslink; search via google for resellers - you can get them very cheap.
    If you want a very good digital crossconnect, look at www.nirvis.com - DSX.

    Both mcmelectronics.com and partsexpress.com have them for ~$15 plus the AC adapter.
