    I think it does sound like a dumbass question :rolleyes: , but does the optical out make use of the D/A convertor in the DVD player?
    Cause the pioneer 440 is said to use a fab D/A convertor but I will be connecting via optic to my Yamaha Rxv-620. I want to know if this factor (D/A convertor) should influence my decision.....

    Thanks

    Nope a D/A converter (DAC) would convert from digital to analog, but since the optical out carries a digital signal there is no conversion in the player.
    Well, except from electrical to light.
    The conversion from digital to analog will then take place in the amp.
