My System Specs

I am confused about this debate over analog vs digital. Digital sound will be better. There are no high level 5.1 sets that use analog. Maybe for gaming but not for high quality Home theatre or surround sound audio. SPDIF to a good av receiver and a nice set of speakers will kill any logitech 5.1 set up for sound. All sound is eventually being converted to analog and quality is relative to the DAC used, watts produced and the quality of the speakers. If you think there is digital degradation from the use of a 6 foot optical cord you don't know what you are talking about. Lossless audio transmission over spdif or hdmi is the best sound quality available depending on what it is hooked up to.
