I think toslink is just the physical layer, just like you don't know if an RCA jack carries line-level audio or digital sp/dif or whatever.

I've hooked the QS8 via optical to 'adat-like' stuff (audio card, digital mixer), it works fine if you have the gear properly clocked from a single source (ie the QS sends its clock on the lightpipe, but it can only recieve clock via BNC connecter, and the spec-d resistance on that coax cable is different than say coax network cable). Depending on the gear, you may have to futz with who is the master clock and who slaves, but it's easy enough to get it working and of course it sounds immaculate (or slightly better than very good analog cables, assuming you have no interference)
