Hi


I'm looking to buy a Blu Ray player and noticed the Samsung BD-P3600 has

7.1-Channel analog audio outputs.


What would this be used for when it has a HDMI ?


I figure why not just use HDMI to connect to HDMI on the A/V Reciever.


What am I not understanding here ?


Thanks

Not just older receivers, but many vintage processors of very high quality and great cost, that sound wonderful, and which the owner would be loathe to replace because it sounds so good with their other equipment. Such an owner could end up spending thousands of dollars to achieve equivalent satisfaction from new hardware with HDMI support. Much better to spend $500 on, say, an Oppo with analog multichannel audio and not disturb the delicate balance of an otherwise finely tuned system.
