    Hope someone can point me in the right direction:

    Right now, I have my DVD Player (which plays DVD-A and SACD) hooked up to my Denon Receiver(AVR-4802) using just the analog audio outputs (one pair, red and white). I also have the option on the DVD Player to hook up 6 channel, as well as Coax/Optical Digital.

    Now my question:

    I understand that DVD-A can be formatted for 5.1 surround, which makes it so great, but at the moment I just have two main speakers (B&W DM601 S3) hooked up. On the DVD-A disc that I play, one side is for 2channel stereo, and the other side is for 5.1 surround.

    With my current setup (just using the red and white analog RCA cables for the audio output), am I utilizing the DVD-A capabilities? Or can you only get the effect if you plug 6 sperate coax cables to the 6 different speaker outputs on the back of the DVD Player?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    You can play the high resolution 2 channel DVD-A through the analogue pair out that you already have connected just fine.
