Just upgraded my receiver (Marantz SR-7300) and was given a DVD player (actually a combo VCR-DVD by Samsung). So now I have a choice between an analog or digital (coax or optical, but I think coax would be the right choice, no?) connection from the DVD side of the player to my receiver. Anyone have reasons why I would want to use the analog connection rather than the digital, or vice versa? If I had a bunch a cabling lying around I'd just use trial and error, but why not ask the experts? P.S. I'm only running two speakers and a sub right now, but that could change.
