I have Panny rp91 dvd player and I have both 6 channel analog cables and toslink connection going to my Marantz sr8000 receiver. I've been using the analog connectors for playing dvd-audio discs and the digital connection for regular cds and dvd movies and concerts. My question is: which provides the better quality sound/music - the analog cables or the toslink connection? I don't know if I'm nuts, but it seems that the analog cables have better sound quality than the digital. I always thought that digital was better than analog. Anyone else have similar experiences or knowledge on this topic? If the 6 channel analog plugs provide better sound reproduction, then why bother with digital connection?
