I have an old Yamaha RX V995, it doesn't have HDMI. I am using an optical connection from my PS3 to play Blue Rays.


I am considering upgrading to a Pioneer Elite 23 TXH. I have a Pro 111 FD so the Kuro link has some appeal.


My question, will I hear a noticable difference in sound quality? I'm not sure if the new technology will yield big results, any feedback would be appreciated.


I am only using three speakers in my setup. They are the Boston Acoustics VR 950 series (8 ohms.)


I'll end up spending $500 to $600 for the new receiver.


All comments welcome.

I would not bother if that's the only reason. While lossless audio is theoretically better, there's reason to believe there's not much of an audible difference. The stickied AVR FAQ has a link to a listening test.
