Has the denon 3802 the inputs for connecting up a dvd audio player
Yes, it has the 5.1 analogue inputs required for either DVD-A or SACD. But it only has the 1 set, so you can't connect both unless you have a player that can do both.
am purchasing a dv89 so sacd is of no interest to me thanks for the reply
Having looked in the 3802 booklet there seems to be 8 seperate inputs for dvd-audio do i need to run phono leads to the sub input as well as the rest i.e. front centre etc, am getting confused i thought i only needed 3 phono leads but this adds up to 4 pairs of leads
I would say a defiante yes, not an expert on these things, but I think the processing for dvd audio would be done in the dvd audio player.
I know you do on my amp.
DVD-A is 5.1 so you need 3 pairs of cables including a sub lead, if you have a sub, ignore if you don't. The other two are probably for centre back channels in a 7.1 system. The 7.1 input is not just for SACD and DVD-A, it's the kind of future proof the system. I mean if somebody anounces DVD-A v2 tomorrow that is 7.1 and not 5.1, you would be ready to use it.
If you have no sub, just use the 2 mains, 2 surrounds and centre, so 5 single phono cables in all.
Cheers stereo steve am running one rear centre at the moment might as well ignore that for the dvd-audio am running sub also so should just need 3 x phono leads
Yep, just 3 will do. Remember though that as it's an analogue bypass you need to set up bass management and speaker distances/ levels on the DVD player too.
