Do not use optical with the Z-5500....

You will get much better sound using analog, the DAC on these speakers sucks.

I speak from experience, use analog!!!!!!!!

Well, for movies and music, the optical sounds great! Really top notch!

But for games, sometimes the spoken dialogue sounds a bit too muted... is this a result of DAC? Would games be better played with analog?
