I have an older Sony DVD player that has 5.1 analog out and optical/digital out. My Marantz SR4500 can accept both, but my question is which will deliver the better signal? I would think that the digital would be better, but splitting the signal to 5.1 at the source sounds like it would provide more detail. I don't have the extra optical cable at the moment so that is why I am asking. Also, am I right to think that the digital out and optical out are the same quality?
