    optical in a car? in all my years ive never run across this. dont get me wrong ive used it in my HT setup for years. My qeustion is why are you needing a optic output anyway? what would it be running to?

    Re: Any decent head units out there with an optical out.

    i think alpine had one or one of their processors did, but the car audio industry is content with using RCA and not simplifying to a better audio signal (really wish they'd go to fiber optic or hdmi for more capabilities)

    Re: Any decent head units out there with an optical out.

    Optical out isn't used anymore because with the older source units that have it it only works on CDs. AM/FM radio? Nope. SiriusXM? Nope. HD radio? Nope. iPod/iPhone? Nope. So who here honestly jams their CDs that often that they really need optical out? Plus there's the issue of whether we can actually hear a difference between optical and RCA out when we're driving. You know, that thing we do with our cars rather than using it as a listening room. SQ competitors are a different story, but that's too small a niche.
