so, its not clear to me if the optical audio output will do 5 channel sound supposing apples DVD player supports it? what should I look for in the amp/reciever? it says on apple site some receivers need toslink adapter which implies some don't? i am kinda looking for a small amp - everything seems to be massive. why cant home amps be the size of car amps? i am actually ok with just stereo sound as this will mostly be for music and occasional movies from dvd. we have no cable so i wont even use a tv - just a lcd monitor will be dandy. now the other thing: the dang buyers guide here says DONT BUY FOOL. well crap there is no indication that these things are coming out in the next month and I really need this (for my business actually the home thing is secondary). many thanks for any opinions. peace yall.
