  1. If you have a good soundcard then analog connection is better option but if you have integrated audio then connect both digital and analog and use Digital whaen wacthing movies or playing DVD Audio or SACD and use analog for gaming.

    For integrated audio, I recomend Z5500 or the Onkyo Home Entertainment System or similar product.

    For Discrete audio, the Creative GigaWorks S750 Speaker System I think is better than Logitech Z5500.
  2. If you are connecting the 5.1 system to the TV directly then you may not get 5.1 out of the digital output. Some TVs only do Dolby 2.0. If you have a set top box then take the digital audio from there. As Rexter says a real Home Theater in a Box such as the Onkyo will probably sound better and be more expandable.
