Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
Its all about the quality of the converter in the Headphone unit.
If the quality is lower than the quality of the converter in the receiver, then using the head jack is a better idea. Since there is more room, power, and money going into the receiver, it may be better
I do not believe that there is a cheap way to connect to the headphone with optical audio
The only way to be sure though, is to test it and see. Connect your computer to the receiver with HDMI, play audio through, and compare it to when you just connect your computer to the headphones, via optical audio

To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.
You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.

The 'Subwoofer' output on your receiver is used to connect to a powered subwoofer with a built in amplifier. Your KLH speakers use what is called a 'passive' subwoofer, it gets its power from the receiver and then passes the higher frequencies to the left and right front speakers after taking out the low frequencies for the subwoofer. A speaker system with a passive subwoofer is good for casual listening, but a powered subwoofer is required for really hearing low frequencies and rumble in movies. The KLH speakers you have were highly rated in their time for their price. The four satellite speakers and center channel speaker have very good sound compared to the little 'midget' surround sound speakers most people buy today.
Here's how you hook them up:
- The left and right front channels from your receiver terminals should go to the terminals on the subwoofer marked 'From Amplifier'
- Your left and right front speakers are then connected to the subwoofer terminals marked 'To Speakers', they do not connect directly to your receiver.
- Your center speaker is connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Center'
- Your rear speakers are connected to your receiver terminals marked 'Surround'
That should get you up and running. If the bass isn't good enough with the passive subwoofer, you can get a decent powered subwoofer like the Velodyne VX-10 for about $150 and 'kick it up a notch'. Good luck and enjoy....

You are right I checked the Manual online and there is no Optical in. The other tech was right in suggesting that, Cause it would be the next best thing to HDMI. It only has 1 Analog Audio in, So what I would Recommend is Plugging in all of your Devices to your TV and then 1 Audio cable from your TV to The Bose input. Although this will NOT transfer Digital Audio to Analog Audio. This means if you are going in HDMI then the Audio would most likely NOT transfer to the Bose. In this case you would have to hook up a set of Audio cables (Red and White) From the Blu-Ray to the Bose along with the HDMI. This will leave you with only Audio from the Blu-ray through the Bose. To go a step further you can purchase an Audio Splitter (or Video) then plug your Devices into the Splitter and then 1 cable out to the Bose and just Switch the Input along with the TV. Good Luck!

No,you are not mistaken actually.I really don't have much to offer though.I just want to let you know that I have seen many problems with HDMI cables and no sound.HDMI does in fact transfer audio/video.Even though I do not like to use Wikipedia because anyone can edit the info,I check and see if it is accurate first and does give the best descriptions and is the quickest and easiest to find.This is a newer technology.Any new technology is usually not figured out until about year 5.In year 3,they are able to get the kinks worked out,but year 4 is already in production.They start designing and building the best version for year 5 next.Although 5 years isn't always achieved,it is more of a minimum to see the best possible of the technology.Happens with cars,TV's,VCR's,etc.Prices come down as everyone who wants it is greatly reduced by then also.Anyhow,here is a link to some info about HDMI.Scroll down to Communication channel protocols.Under TMDS there is some relevant info.You may not understand the terminology but basically it seems that there is an internal automatic muting with certain changes in the audio signal.It just sounds to me like the automatic mute is too sensitive right now and will improve over time.There is also some encryption taking place which is basically taking the output,scrambling it,sending it somewhere,and then being unscrambled and reproduced identically.Same as wireless internet.With all the various products being used,everyone has their own way of doing something.Since it isn't exactly made with exact specifications,there are many variations to interpret.If someone were to have ALL components made by 1 company,it would most likely work much better.How many people have that kind of setup though?Very few.There is not 1 company which makes everything they produce,better than everyone else's.Some make better radios,some TV's,etc.Right now,some of the better TV's are Samsung,LG,Vizio.Some better phones are AT&T,Panasonic.Bose has been at the top of the food chain for years for audio for that reason also.They do audio,nothing else,so they can put everything into it.I know this is a bit wordy but that's why I am here.To inform and educate people about things which they most likely don't understand and encourage them to spread the word.Hope you understand this anyhow.Basically,depending on how old your PS3 is,there may be compatibilty issues.With HDMI changing/upgrading rapidly,if your PS3 is an earlier version,it could simply be compatibility because PS3's even were changed as they sold more.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Here is the link for HDMI characteristics/operation.Good luck,Greg
