  • You can connect either analogue miniature jack, or an optical cable. The optical plug to the AE must be the mini Toslink size and the end for your stereo the normal Toslink size, or whatever your system requires. The design of the AE jack is ingenious, in that it accepts either the analogue or digital plug and both work fine, I have tried it....good luck.
