is either one better or are they the same? also, i'm wondering if i should upgrade my multichannel cables, i'm just using standard ones right now. does anyone know a good cable to use that isnt super expensive?
CD, DVD-A, and DVD movies use the digital output (either coax or optical), SACD uses the analog mulit-channel ouptputs (their PITA copy-protect method). Both acheive the same end result for the different formats exept that you can record from the digital output and not the analog.
For good cable, I use Blue Jeans Cables. Nice quality & a good price. But if what you are using is working you probably don't need to spend more money on cable.
