I have an older receiver, Yamaha HTR 5750.
If I go from my PS4 using Linear PCM, it is only in 2.0 via Optical. Is this because of a limitation of the Optical format or the PS4 for surround?
I can choose DTS or DD and they sound much better but I hear Linear PCM is much better.
My receiver does not have HDMI but just optical inputs.

I always figured digital audio was digital audio whether carried via Optical or HDMI, HDMI just carring video as well instead. Like DVI only carries digital video but no audio.

Maybe it is time for a new receiver but just trying to understand I suppose. Maybe another question would be too, what output should I do with the receiver that I have?

There is a slight, almost imperceptible difference between Dolby Digital and DTS. Damned if I can describe what it is though. :D
