Hi, there has been a lot of discussion regarding the comparison between A90 7.1 plus P90/3 and AVR 300. My understanding is that while AVR 300 can decode some of the digitally coded signals, A90 7.1 can just accept (process) analogue signals. In other words a digital signal like DTS 5.1 from the DVD player can be transferred in the digital form to AVR 300 and decoded there, while A90 7.1 can not decode any digital signal. However, if the DVD player (like DV89) has a decoder for DTS 5.1 itself, it can decode the signal and send it in analogue form via 5 (6 including .1) lines to A90 7.1 where they are then amplified and sent to the corresponding speakers (front, central, back and .1 to subwoofer). Having said all that, I would like first of all to confirm my thoughts and second to ask somebody who has tested both conversion on AVR 300 (from AVR 300 and DVD player) to comment on the quality of the conversion. Conclusion: If I go A90 7.1 I have DVD-Audio and DTS 5.1, DD,.. and all other digital formats only if DVD player can decode them, but they are transferred through the analogue lines (interconnects). If I go AVR 300 I probably have much more digital formats that AVR 300 can decode, but I believe the amplification of AVR is not comparable with A90, particularly not in stereo. I prefer to go A90 7.1 Am I right?
