OK I got me a set of KEF HT2005 speakers and a Yamaha AX620 amp. I also got me an optical digital cable thinking it would be the best possible quality for connecting my DVD player to the amp. Now according to the F***ing manual for this AX620, you have to use the same output connector as input (i.e. if you use s-video input you have to use s-video output). So what it's saying is you either need a set of speakers and a TV with optical input, or the optical on the amp is totally ****ing useless because you cant use it! I was using a scart cable and RGB mode to get the video to my TV and since this is the way best quality I dont mind doing that, but surely the F***ing thing will let you use the optical digital input for SOUND and output it using the same connections all speakers use, i.e. speaker wire?!?!?!?! I dont mind putting the video direct from the dvd player to the tv, I really dont see the point having it going through the amp anyway, but gimme a fukin break how can it expect you to use a optical digital connection from dvd to amp AND optical digital to your speakers and tv from the amp? I bought a £50 Van Den Hul optocoupler just to get me the highest quality (and easiest connection, i.e. 1 wire for all the audio from the dvd player rather than 6 wires) and it now seems to be useless. I have 2 questions, is it ok for me to connect the dvd player directly to the tv using a scart cable in RGB mode and bypass the amp completely, and is it possible for me to use the optical digital from the dvd player to the amp and actually get some sound out of the thing without having to use an optical digital output from the amp to the speakers?
