    For standard cd playback you can use either a pair of analogue phono cables (which means you use the digital to analogue converters , DAC´s, of the dvd player) or either an optical or digital coaxial cable (this would then use the DAC´s of the amp).

    You need the optical or digital coaxial cable for 5.1 audio (Dolby/DTS).

    For SACD multichannel playback you´ll need to connect three pairs of analogue phono cables from the 5.1 analogue outputs of the dvd player to the 5.1 external inputs of the amp.

    I´d just get either an optical or coaxial digital cable (for cd and dolby/dts) and then the three pairs of analogue phono cables.
