TOSLink optical S/PDIF

TOSLink is S/PDIF through an optical cable (same type of cable that is used for ADAT optical, but a different protocol).

MOTU's 308 (PCI), 828, 828mk2, 828mk3, Traveler, Traveler-mk3 and 896mk3 (FireWire) can communicate with optical S/PDIF devices, as well as pro devices that use the RCA form of S/PDIF, sometimes called coax S/PDIF.

The optical connections on the 2408mk1/mk2/mk3, 896, 896HD, 8pre, V3HD, and V4HD are for ADAT lightpipe only, not TOSLink.
