    Hello,

    I got my new dvd player (denon 1400) and conected the 5.1 output to my Denon receiver (1905) to enjoy SACD. I just wonder if it would be also better to use the DAC of the player for Dolby digital (and everything else), instead of the one in the Receiver, since the DVD player belongs to a slightly higher league.
    My ears, in a not very deep test (I hope I can find some hours to make it properly...), told me that they prefer the DAC of the player, but the difference was not big. Am I right, is it a placebo (justifying the money), should I hear no difference, or is it actually better the one in the receiver?
    Opinions are welcome. Thank you.
