    I have a Stanton T92 Turntable that I would like to connect to my iMac (Mid-2011 Edition) so that I can listen to some records.

    My turntable has a coaxial digital output as seen here:,85/t92_back-f53efc70364b6f0face720a8febe6d4c.jpg

    I am aware that I need an optical mini-plug for the back of my iMac such as this:

    but I am confused on which converter I need to connect to my turntable.

    I need to buy either a

    Coaxial to Optical Digital Audio Converter


    Optical to Coaxial Digital Audio Converter

    Which one is the correct one?

    Also, do I plug the toslink mini-plug into the audio line in jack and then configure the sound settings?

    The other option: Could I totally by-pass the digital input/output and just connect a Y-cable splitter from turn turntable to the iMac?

    I would just use the y cable but buy a good monster cable one instead of buying all that other stuff. Honestly worth the money spent.
