    Since Sony stopped making receivers I think the only currently available units with optical out are Sky+ boxes. Also note that although the Sony 750/760 had optical out it is only stereo, Dolby 5.1 was never enabled (the promised software upgrade never materialised!) I have seen many auctions on Ebay claiming the Sony is 5.1 compatible, but as things stand at the minute this is a false claim, and as Sony have withdrawn from the digibox market I doubt anything will change.

    Apart from the SKY+ boxes I think the only other boxes with an optical out came from Sony but I don't know the model numbers.
