I am using the USB-based Music Streamer to send internet music from my Macbook to my older RCA-based receiver.
Having just purchased a HDTV that has built-in internet access, I now have more options.
The new TV has two options for AUDIO OUT.
--- a 3.5mm analog jack
--- an optical digital jack
Question 1 -- if I convert my pathway for internet music from my Macbook to my new HDTV, which of new output jacks will carry the best resolution -- 3.5mm analog or optical digital?
Question 2 -- would the new HDTV pathway have better resolution than my existing USB-based Music Streamer pathway?
In either case, my goal is to route Pandora music from the internet to my stereo.
