Digital optical cables can carry any audio format the TV can produce, including Dolby Digital 7.1, while RCA cables can only carry 2-channel stereo. If you're connecting your Bravia TV to an audio/video receiver, you'll get the most out of your set-up if you use digital optical cable to connect your TV to the receiver.
