I'm pretty happy with my current DVD player (757i) through the bypass of my 3803 and soon from that to a Parasound 1205a. I'm wondering about the AX5 though with the iLink input. Sending everything through one digital cable and letting the amp decide what it was is appealing as it means less input changing on the amp. So, has anyone got the above setup and could they comment specifically on the performance of the pair using 5.1 cables vs. iLink for CD and SACD/DVD-A? Not too worried about DD/DTS. At the moment I use the analogue outs of the 757 for all music as I feel it does a better job than the 3803, which I'm suprised at.
