there is no need to have them on each side e etc.. just a precaution... and the transition to aes...Still more convenient than opening the lid of any SPDIF Coax- source one encounters. If there was one on the source side, there would be no drop outs. In studio setups, transformers on both sides are mandatory. This is why Toslink came up -much cheaper than a dedicated transformer to break ground loops.
in absolute terms even if their performance is very good it is still preferable to have only one absolute performance side, and even more if we go up in resolution
((you can use optocoupler too)
