i believe hdmi is actually preferred over optical.

Unless you have the Slim PS3 you do not get any of the surround sound modes, only stereo over HDMI as the older PS3s do not bitstream only 2 channel linear PCM. The slim can bitstream over HDMI so u have to go optical to get surround. I am after a new sound system because of this also. It's a real pain!

I had a denon 1908 receiver, my ps3 phat was connected via hdmi only, I received 5.1 surround perfectly.

Optical can't handle true HD sound so if you are after such, hdmi is the only option. The phat ps3 can send via PCM decoded to a relevent receiver or the slim can actually send it bitstream so the receiver can decode it and then you can have the fancy little light come on.
I'm certain if you ask on avforums hdmi would be the preferred connection if possible
