I have a Marantz SR7500 hooked up to KEF speakers. The setup is 6 years old. I used component for video and co-ax for audio.
No complaints. It's awesome as ever.

I got a new Apple TV.

Marantz SR7500 does not have HDMI.

The converters in the market have HDMI to Component but only 2.1 Audio.

Can I just connect my ATV using HDMI to my TV, but use the TOSLINK audio to my receiver? Will that work?

It will still only give you 2 channel on the tos link. In general, the toslink out of the TV is for audio "out" on over the air channels. HDMI "spec" has "restrictions" on what can be digitally sent out from its "stream".

I need to clarify this,

Apple TV to HDTV using HDMI cable (for video)
Apple TV to A/V Receiver using TOSLINK (for digital audio)

Would this work?
