I purchased one of these machines last week and want to know if I can output dvd-audio signals via a optical digital connection to my Denon AVC 10SE or do I need to use the 5.1 analogue inputs between the two pieces of kit? Any advice on settings for the player and amp would be very much appreciated. If it helps, I was trying to listen to a dvd-audio recording by Daniel Barenboim.
Also, any news on the official firmware upgarde for the 3800?
Many Thanks

P.S. Doesn't seem to be much on the official firmware, but quite a few people have used the firmware mentioned in this forum without any problems...

I'm sure mark or others will post once it becomes available...

Jasonjo,

Many thanks for the reply. I will read the article you suggested and buy some interconnects.

Ive got the 3800 and avc-10se , and poat power amp , you have to use the the analouge inputs as jasonjo says , to get the bass channel to work you will need to turn down all the other channels by about 10db , if you have an spl meter you will see what i meen. Dvd audio two channel mix sounds stunning better than any cd ive ever heard not sure about the 5.1 though.
 
You cant turn the LFE up to 10db , 0 is the maximum value and thats what all the levels are set at , the only way to hear the low frequency is turn the other levels down and the master volume up.

Cheers installer09.
I am in the process of purchasing the analogue leads. How about the settings on the audio setup? Any recommendations?
