While I have been into DVD since 97, I am now looking at getting an good LD player for things like the Star Wars Trilogy and Indiana Jones. I don't really have any high end gear, my receiver only has one optical input free, and no AC-3 RF input. I have seen LD players on eBay with both the AC-3 RF out and a regular optical out. Is that optical output capable of sending the 5.1 signal directly to my receiver, or is it only meant for other purposes? The only LD player I have laying around here is a Pioneer CLD-S104, and I don't think it's gonna meet my needs. Any help would be greatly appreciated. An example of the players I'm seeing with both optical and RF outputs would be this.....
