I mention the year in the title because I have a feeling even now that I'm a dinosaur here, looking for a TOSLINK (not coaxial) optical output on a DVD player (or BR player) that's not an expensive OPPO.
Can anyone recommend a currently (2013) available player that has TOSLINK optical output?
Why do I want this obviously antiquated audio option? Because I like it, and want to use it again when my current elderly DVD player dies.
(I currently run my player into my TV via component video and into my receiver as TOSLINK, and this is the way I want it.)
- What's the SQ difference between TOSLINK and a coaxial optical output, if any?
- What am I to do if the vast majority of players today have only HDMI outputs, and I do not want to run HDMI from the player to the receiver, then out again to the TV? Any thoughts?
Thanks for suggestions and input!
