    The Stereo connection kit is $50 CDN, does the Source carry an alternative Fibre optic/coaxial connector afor the Airport Express? Radio Shack? I hear they do..anyone know the price/name?

    Also what difference do you think it will make going from composite (RCA) to fibre optic/coax listening to mp3s?

    Thanks for any help in advance...

    I think this in large part depends on how you've encoded your MP3s.

    I would say that you won't hear a difference unless you have this or higher encoding:
    - Stereo Bit Rate --> 256Kbps
    - Sample Rate --> 44.100 kHz
    - Channels --> Stereo
    - Stereo Mode --> Normal

    Also, the original source quality will affect the outcome as well.
