    Hi there

    As Denon are including DVD-A decoding and DTS 24/96 decoding as part of the AVC A1SE upgrade, does this mean that players will soon have digital outputs to allow the 24/96 signal to be taken to the amp's decoders? I reckon so, but what about the copy protection issues that have been plaguing this for ages?

    Cheers Kane

    Some players (Pioneer) can already pass a 24/96 signal via the digital outputs. Some cds & the Seven dvd have a 24/96 two channel track on them.

    Most others downconvert the signal though.

    Denon have done their own thing with regards to DVD-Audio and bass management etc (Denon Link).

    Not sure about the Copyright side of things though.

    Some players will already do this through the existing optical/coax TOSlink. I don't think a new format is needed.

    Also of course, the amp must be able to accept the signal too.

    eg. My Sony DVD can play 96/24 sources over the toslink and through the Sony 930 amp.
