My receiver is the Onkyo HT-S790. It has both multi-channel DVD inputs and digital optical IN. I just bought the Sony Blu-ray BDP-S550, which has both 7.1 Analog Audio Out and Optical Audio Out.
Which connection is better? I’ve always assumed that digital is better, but maybe the receiver doesn’t process the digital as well??? Please help.
I’m trying to figure out if the BDP-S550 is worth the extra $100 over the BDP-S350. Anything I’m missing that is a glaring difference? I’m assuming video is the same.
