I use s/pdif connections to my lexicon MPX 1 effects unit (which has 
digital i/o).   I can add wonderful lexicon reverb to my audio tracks, 
without using the processing power a good software reverb uses.  This 
allows me to record more tracks on my machine, or use other software 
effects.  Since the effects send and return stays in the digital 
domain, I have no loss of audio quality.
