Even most newer entry level receivers will come with HDMI A/V connectors. You don't need $10,000 is audio gear to enjoy high resolution standards. If anything, these newer standards may help people get the most out of the gear they already have which may already be compatible.
Digital S/PDIF standards right now are very limited compared to HDMI. Surround formats presently using digital Coax and optical are using lossy compression meaning your losing some fidelity just in the encoding. Of course these are emerging audio/video standards and will take awhile before they become more main stream in price and affordability.
