    Yes, for a CD-Recorder, for instance. No reason to pass a digital signal through analog cables.

    Don't forget about optical out to a MD player.

    Yep, I use my optical out to record to my minidisc deck. My receiver actually has optical and coax outputs. Haven't need the coax out yet but it's nice to have just in case.
