BD Analog 7.1 vs optical cable what should I go for?

Guys I?m in buying process of a B-Ray player I?m in the question of getting panasonic?s DMP-BD35 or DMP-BD55

I have an Onkyo thx990 HT and since it does not have HDMI input I don?t know if its analog audio any better than having the optical cable... should I expend the extra buck un the dmp bd55 and go analog?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

In your case I see no reason to spend the extra money and go analog.
