Hello,

I found the following definition of SPDIF: Sony and Philips Digital Interconnect Format.

May be used for connection to home theatre audio systems via coaxial and optical jack. It allows transfer of digital audio without converting to analog format and retains good quality.

Can anyone provide more details?

Its basically an optical audio port, you can use it for varying uses, ive only ever used it for recording onto a minidisc, but it works both ways so you can use it as an output as well as in input port, good jack of all trades port really. Anything particular you need to know about it.

If you have electrical noise its handy as being optical its immune, the wiki has got some good info.
