*Upon further reading, I dont see an optical out and this AV reciever is highly rated. However, the amp obviously has an optical out so ugh what!? I think I'm confusing stuff, I need to sleep.
That is an optical in which you would use from your TV if you decided to not use ARC. Why would you need optical out from the receiver? I wouldn't worry about the receiver adding lag. What TV are you using? Just turn off all video processing on the receiver and the signal just passes right through.
