Mainly the audio support. See the Player Comparison in my signature.

Hello namechamps,


if i do this, i'll use the 6-channel output from the sony to the 6-channel input to a rotel rsp-1068. i'm happy with 5.1 sound. i tried 6.1 but wasn't impressed. for now 5.1 will work for me. it will be to much $$ to upgrade my sound to the new formats.


will i get a better 5.1 sound from the 6-channel out/in or coaxial / toslink?

I need to make the same decision either today or over the weekend. Assuming I'm running it through a Dennon 3808 to a Pannty AE2000u, is there any tangible benefit to the 500? Is there a material difference in load times? What can I anticipate load time wise for both units?


Thanks,

Michael

Load times between the two are pretty significant. The S500 is faster.

Stick with the analog connections.
