I recently bought the following product
http://www.google.co.in/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=philips%20hd%20media%20player%20hmp3000&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCkQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.p4c.philips.com%2Fcgi-bin%2Fdcbint%2Fcpindex.pl%3Fslg%3Den%26scy%3Dpl%26 ctn%3DHMP3000%2F12&ei=6YP5TvPmKYTPrQeitqm0BQ&usg=AFQjCNEqtjKqTJmqFSg6de7XS9xKKL9vvA&cad=rja

The product specification says

Analog stereo output
Signal to noise ratio (1 kHz): > 90 dB (A-weighted)
Dynamic Range (1 kHz): > 80 dB (A-weighted)
Frequency response: +/-0.2 dB
Digital output: Optical

I want to buy 5.1 ch speakers and want to connect to Digital output: Optical. Please suggest which cable I will need. i.e. what name for cable should I refer

Also media player supports

Dolby Digital Passthrough Yes
Dolby Digital Plus Passthrough Yes
Dolby TrueHD Passthrough Yes
DTS Passthrough Yes
DTS-HD HR Passthrough Yes

Which 5.1ch speaker set should I buy with Digital input: Optical which decodes the audio as media player only passthrough the audio.

trhis way you can obtain all music incl DTS.
connect the mediaplayer to tv with HDMI and with optical cable to your music/sound system
