    HDMI cables in amps!!!

    How will an amp sound better with an HDMI for PS3 etc? Mine takes a coaxial cable and surely the sound cant be that greatly improved if in dolby digital 6.1?

    can it?

    As they are both digital media probably no difference at all but when the protected films start appearing it will probably only be possible to hear thru the hdmi interface

    Just back from an electronics specialist because this was playin on my mind. As far as anyone was concerned digital output is exactly that therefore unless everyone is being forced to upgrade drastically all home entertainment equipment then we should be fine for some number of years........Phew.:-D

    Thanks

    cool but perhaps a better question and one i don't know the answer too is
    if hdmi+hdcp= protected output and you have an hdmi socket from dvdplayer/htpc/sky3000+ box to tv,, how are you going to get the sound back to your amp if you only have 1 hdmi socket on your tv?
