About to get a PS3, getting an HDMI cable, what about an optical audio? - Page 2

post #11 of 26
To the best of my knowledge, there is no difference in audio quality between an optical and digital audio signal.

digital has higher bandwidth and is the only way to get an HD audio source

i guess the sound quality might be the same, but your being limited on what codecs you can listen to if your not running digital

yes, that statement is all the OP needs to know. optical does not have the bandwidth for the newest codecs

why are you trying to argue this with me?

read this-

Quote:
Perhaps the single most confusing aspect of HDMI 1.3 is its support for high-resolution audio formats such as Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD, all of which require more bandwidth (and copy protection) than can be transmitted over the old digital coaxial or Toslink optical audio connections that were sufficient for Standard-Def DVD. If using one of those cable types, the HD DVD or Blu-ray player will downconvert the DD+, TrueHD, or DTS-HD signal to standard Dolby Digital or DTS quality. In order to benefit from the full high-resolution quality of these formats, the player must be connected by either HDMI or multi-channel analog. For the purposes of this article, we're obviously going to focus on the HDMI transmission method.

now, stop trying to argue when you dont know what your talking about

I apologize, I didn't realize we were arguing.
Please provide me with the statement I made that was in error.

Considerate of you to decide for the OP what "all he needs to know".

im sure that between our links the OP has enough information to decide on what he needs

what im not sure of tho, is what your problem is litlratt. you obviously know nothing about home audio. your just trying to prove all my statements as incorrect or make them seem demeaning in some form. nothing i have said has been demeaning or incorrect. now go read up on some home audio before you try and advise anybody of anything.
