i came across some information on i.Link.

i.Link is based on IEEE 1394 standard [i think itz firewire..]
i.LINK can also handle the DVD-Audio, Super Audio CD, Dolby Digital, and DTS formats, plus it offers full copyright protection. In addition, i.LINK provides greater convenience, as it only requires a single cable for connectivity. To deliver realistic surround sound, this receiver is equipped with THX Select2 Processing, Circle Surround II for stereo-to-6.1 surround decoding, and it is compatible with Dolby Pro Logic IIx and DTS 96/24.

As sony vaio laptops are equipped with i.Link port can they serve as a hiQuality
source for audio ? I agree that one i.Link compatible AVR/DAC will be needed .

Any way to get SPDIF from i.Link?
Update:

AF1 does SPDIF
