I had the older model over 10 years ago and have always regretted selling them so have ordered the Logitech Z906 now I have a gaming pc to make extra use out off them for games as well as my main use for them was for films.
I in the process of backing up my blu rays to hard drive and not sure to keep the dts hd ma and dolby true tracks instead of plain dts and ac3. I know these speakers can use decode dts/ac3 via optical but if I was to use the analog connections to my pc would I gain anything keeping the HD tracks and letting the player software decode and output the raw sound?
I would rather just use plain dts / ac3 for size and compatibility with other devices but if there would be a noticeable improvement I will keep the hd tracks.
also my sound on my motherboard does not have spdf out (only a header which hard to get a bracket for it unless order from china) should I just stick to analog direct connections or invest in new soundcard / spdf bracket? my motherboard does do 5.1
