    I will be a first time Mac owner soon.....on my PC I have it hooked up via "optical" into my Onkyo can I do this with a iMac? What are my options for audio out?

    If the old ones don't have it hopefully the new ones do. I like to play my iTunes music over on my AVR.

    Get a mini toslink-toslink cable and you're all set.

    In fact I'm using one now from my MBP into my Cyrus amp!

    No quality loss?

    BTW does the iMac do Dolby 5.1?
