A little more help needed!

How many ways are the lossless PCM soundracks on Blu-ray discs output from the players?

HDMI only, or can the soundtracks be sent through Toslink & via 5.1 or 7.1 analog outputs??

Thanks very much!!

Toslink will only have room for 2 channels of pcm. So if you want to send more than 2 channels pcm from the player use either the hmdi cable or the analog out.

The analog out will do perfect.

Thanks for the timely info!!!

Of course you need a player that is able to decode the formats and send as PCM, and a player that actually has the analog connections.

^^^ As mentioned above you need to check the players specs. Some will do 5.1 analog, some 7.1, and some such as the Denon 2500 or PS3, none at all.

^^^ Yes, I'm deciding between one with 5.1 or one with 7.1 analog output.

I have been wondering if the difference is worth the price.
