    Hi, totally new to AV so please bear with me!

    My digibox (Thomson DTi2300) and DVD (Philips DVDR70) both have phono digital audio outs. My AV amp (Yamaha VS-10) has an optical input. Can I buy an appropriate cable or am I limited to Dolby Surround?

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Rich

    Converters exist for a few quid.
