Apple TV Gen 3 to Blue-Ray Player

Recommended Posts

I'd like to use my Apple TV to receive iTunes audio over Airplay and then pipe it into a DVD/Blueray player which is connected to my amp and speakers.


I can use HDMI to connect the Apple TV to the disc player, but I think I can also use Ethernet (both units Ethernet jacks).


Is one connection method better than the other for sound quality?


(BTW, no Toslink input on the player, so that's out)

Airplay resamples everything to 44.1kH, then the AppleTV resamples it again to 48kHz. I think any issues HDMI would have would be small by comparison. OTOH, the resampling to my ears is transparent -- I don't hear any evidence of it. All I am saying is HDMI should be fine. I think the only two options for getting audio out of the ATV are HDMI and optical.
