Again, when I find the time, I wish to hook up a receiver and use it as the "sound card" of sorts for my PC.
My new question is, which is a better means of connection for sound reproduction: HDMI or SPDIF/Toslink?
Thanks for any help and suggestions for this endeavor. I am still very much intrigued to learn why so many people read my original query concerning the use of a digital receiver to power the speakers I want to use for my PC gaming/music, and had nothing to suggest, or even an inkling of why it is not a recommended course of action. Please know that I'm not trying to belittle the Polk forum denizens at all; this has been the standard (non)response wherever I have posted about this. It truly forces me to think that perhaps I'm doing something unheard of, or I'm perhaps asking something that to most others would be considered a silly question. I don't know, but I very interested in the lack of interest. heh.
