If the Sony thing has a Toslink in-port, you will not get HD audio & if the disk is PCM all you will get is 2.0 but your not getting surround sound as it is anyways with 2 speakers, you need at lease 5.0 speakers to have surround sound.
Blueray player. I have a 2002 sony dream system (combo system) i use it solely for the surround sound. I want to buy a blueray player; how can i connect either one with as little wires as possible. Note that the sony doesnt have hdmi capability.
my setup: 2002 sony dream system, 2009 panasonic plasma tv, hd tivo 2010.
