What audio options (i.e. Sky+ to AV Amp) are available?
Is it just phono 2 phono?
The Sky+ box also has a digital audio output connection (don't know what type, Toslink (optical) or SPDIF (electrical).
Certain Sky Film channels broadcast in DD 5.1 and this is the only box that can output that.
There is a standard Sky box by Sony that also has an optical out and decodes the 5.1DD, apparently.
the Sony does have an optical out, but sadly doesn't decode the 5.1...
I can vouch for the Sony Sky box with the optical out.
It sends out Stereo PCM @ 48Khz which sounds a lot better through my Tag AV32R than using the DACS in the Digibox (shudder!)
Thanks folks for your comments.
That's another optical cable I can add to the shopping list then
