Optical Digital Out?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alot of my components have Optical Digital Out and i'm wondering how important this is to take into consideration when purchasing a new AVR.

What are the benefits of using this?

It's a direct S/PDIF connection for digital audio. If that same source unit has HDMI, then it is not necessary to use S/PDIF.

And, considering that pretty much all new AVRs have them, it's not like you have much choice about getting some anyway.

You'll want to use optical for your Yamaha cd changer. Your video sources all use HDMI so you should not need more than 2 optical inputs on your receiver.
