Coaxial

The most common connection for digital audio. Coaxial has an advantage over optical for installations that require longer run lengths. Coaxial lenghts re common upto 50 feet.

Analog Surround

Very common connections for offering Dolby 5.1 surround sound. More current systems are moving to Dolby 6.1 or 7.1 surround sound which also utilizes this RCA configuration. Lengths can run up to 50 feet without noticeable signal loss. Like stereo the color coded RCA connectors are still red and white, but insted of just "L" and "R", you have "C" (center), "FR" (front right), "FL" (front left), "SL" (surround left), "SR" (surround right), and "SW" (subwoofer). Dolby digital or DTS 6.1 or 7.1 also utilize this RCA configuration, the only difference being the need for more cables than for Dolby 5.1.

RCA Stereo

These connections deliver an analog stereo signal but can only offer surround sound with simulation. For this installation you have "L" (left) and "R" (right) or 2 channels which will provide you with stereo sound. Lengths can run up to 50 feet without noticeable signal loss.
