Audio card INPUTS : Which is better? 1/4" TRS and TS or SPDIF (coax digital)

Which do you think is better for audio card INPUTS (not outputs):

1/4" TRS and TS

2. We all know the SPDIF input is basically digital 1's and 0's.

Help! Groove Tubes 6TM Power Supply cable Pin out schematic/ ADAT Elco to 1/4" snaKes

The power supply end looks like an 9-pin ADAT sync connector almost like a vga computer display connector. I am in need of the pin out configuration so that I can build one or a source to purchase one.

I Just Got A 1/4" Tape Deck. Now What?

This may sound totally noob/stupid, but... I just got an old Sony TC-252 1/4" Reel To Reel. And I have no idea what to do with it. I mean... I've had -many- tape machines over the years... just not in the past 20 or so. I figured, if nothing else I could make little echo loops with it like when I was 16 or so... or make some nutty distortion with it.
