    Hello All,

    Well, now that I have my new receiver, I am trying to decide how to hookup my ps2's sound. Should I use analog or the optical. I have always used the analog in the past, and that was only because all of my digital connections were being used. How does everybody else hook up their sound. Is there a downside to using digital connection?

    I use the optical. No downside to doing so, except there are maybe 2 first-gen games (Sky Oddysee and Fantavision) that didn't use the optical out for some reason.

    The upside is that you can use DTS and DD in the games that use it.

    BOTH!

    I have analog to the TV and digital to the receiver. If I want a casual, quiet gaming experience, I use the TV speakers. If I want to go big, I just switch to the receiver.

    I just use the optical as well. If I want a quiet gaming experience, I plug my headphones into my receiver [​IMG]

    I only use optical for playing games but I have both connected to let friends hear the difference between the two.

    Optical, no doubt. Especially if you will be using DVD playback at all.
