The wolfson article really had no bearing on my situation other than in an attempt to circumvent this issue with two channel playback, I was trying to see which alternate input type had better sound quality as I assumed HDMI was best. Then i saw that that may or may not always be true based on how different units handle jitter over the HDMI input. Then I saw that Coax is usually better anyway but my PS3 does not have coax. Then I read that jitter most likely isn't audible anyway so don't stress over it. Then I came across that article which said it could affect sound quality but did not seem to state at what point. Then I posted here. See how this quickly one goes down the rabbit hole smile.gif

If you have either a coax or optical link, but need the other kind of link to complete your system, there are economical optical-to-coax and coax-to-optical converters that are available.

For example:

A more complete list at:

Numerous other sources exist for similar equipment at reasonable prices including some Radio Shack stores.
