Old vs New Speakers

I think I will keep my old Integra and connect my devices (Fios TV, Apple TV and Blu Ray) directly via HDMI to TV for video. For sound I will connect these three (plus a Rotel CD player) to receiver via digital audio or RCA. I will check this out before mounting to make sure I dont have lip-syn issues. I have nice Totem speakers so that is not an issue.
