Hi,

I have a 1920 connected with a coaxial cable for DVD and 5:1 analog =for SACD and DVD-A to my Yamaha 757.

For a standard stereo CD, the Denon outputs to the digital out and the analog out. Which should I select on the Yamaha?

Thanks

Which ever sounds the best, with coaxial out you are using the dac's in the amp, with the analog out you are using the dac's in the Denon.

Actually for stereo out, your choices are between co-axial/optical out and the stereo outputs between the HDMI and component connections. Ideally you would have your amps DVD option set to co-axial/optical, ext. in for SACD/DVD-A and plumb the stereo outs into the CD input of your amp for CD. The reason for this is bass management...

Thanks Cable Monkey and Barry .

HDMI is not an option on my amp - it has no HDMI input.
DVD-A and SACD are only available via the analogue inputs, if I listen to DVD-A through the coax I only get stereo, so I have to have both analogue and coax connected.

Since both are cabled up I can choose to listen to either for stereo.
Having had a play with the system since I posted, I have found that the advantage of using the PCM feed from the coax for stereo is I can use the various programs on the amp such as 7 ch stereo , which sounds great - they are not available on the 5:1 inputs.
