Currently running a Yamaha Z9 (no HDMI) with an old Dell Laptop that has a dock on it that has SPDIF Coax out this means I can connect to the Z9 and can play DD and DTS (music and movies) The poor laptop has seen better days so want to replace it. My question is if I get a replacement laptop it won’t have SPDIF how will I be able to output SPDIF to my Z9 and still play DD and DTS in the digital domain? I’ve seen USB adaptors https://www.amazon.co.uk/TRIXES-Ext...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=0P5NPQTE4G293AKJN5SH not sure if that will convert the signal so I can get DD and DTS. Most new laptop have HDMI so the other option is to convert the HDMI signal to SPDIF Audio (can that be done?), but I’d like to keep the HDMI port free on the laptop to connect to my projector via HDMI. Please has any got any suggestions as to which would be the best way to go about it?
