    Hi there,

    Can anyone tell me the best way to connect a Meridian 800 to a 3805 to play CD's the 800 has either analogue out which I know I can connect to the CD in on the 3805 but the 800 also has Digital out can I use the digital out and if so where does it go to on the 3805?

    I know I can connect the DVD component out form the 800 to the component in on the 3805 but I do want to occasionally listen to CD’s via the 800.

    Many thanks, Tim.

    Assuming it's got the standard optical or coaxial outputs just connect one of those up to the relevant inputs on the back of the Denon. You then need to assign that input to the correct source in the Digital In Assignment option of the main setup menu of the Denon e.g Coax1 to CD.

    Hi there,

    I thought that might be the case that I could use the coax in on the 3805 the 800 doesn't have optical out so now have to find a coax cable?

    Many thanks, Tim.

    A standard phono cable will do the job if you just want to connect up quickly. You can then replace it later. :)
