I want to take the audio output (optical) from my Blu-Ray player and go into a good quality A/V receiver where I can then send analog pre-amp out to my Bose system.

Any suggestions on a good A/V receiver to accomplish this that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? It doesn't have to have a ton of features.

Thanks,
Bill

There are only a handful of AVRs on the market today that can accomplish the optical --> analog conversion and AFAIK, they are all older Denon AVRs (3312CI, 3311CI, 4311CI). You would be better served connecting an RCA analog cable from the BDP to the AVR for Zone 2 pre-out audio which any Zone 2 AVR would be capable of accomplishing.

Unfortunately, my BD player has only the HDMI output and the optical audio output. I suppose I could run the HDMI to the A/V receiver then back to the TV instead of just directly to the TV. That should give me more options on the A/V receiver.

Couldn't you get a receiver that has hdmi and optical in and analog pre-amp rca outs? Do you need to feed a stereo or multichannel signal to the bose?

Or you could use an optical --> analog converter .....

Thanks, that looks like an excellent alternative to an A/V receiver... and a lot cheaper.
