Best Audio Connection

10-03-2007, 04:59 PM
Just wondering what the best connections is for audio. I have my video and audio routed thru my HDMI from A20 player to STR-DG810 receiver.

Is this the best connection for the best possible sound?
Or would optical?

To make a fairly long story short, HDMI would be your best option..

Since all of your equipment is not HDMI 1.3, the optical would be just as good as HDMI for audio. In fact it may do a better job of decoding some special formats such as DTS. Hook them both up and test it to see. I keep both connected in my system.
