    Hi All!

    Can anyone give me a fourth opinion?

    I would like to connect my Cambridge Audio 540D DVD to my Yamaha 640SE amp. Obviously, for movies and most CDs, I am using a digital lead. What I need to know is which connections do I need to make, in order to enable DVD-Audio. I have not yet bought any DVD-Audio discs, so I am not sure whether my digital lead is enough.

    Somebody in another category suggested I use 3X Phono to 3X Phono. A cable company told me a digital lead will do. I am confused with this. :rolleyes:

    Can anybody give me the right answer? Any help much appreciated!

    You need 6 standard audio interconnects (50 Ohm impedance, RCA/phono connector at both ends).

    Three pairs of phono leads and not three phono leads.

    DVDA is decoded within the dvd player and output in the analogue domain to the six channel external input (if fitted) on your amp which is why a digital lead will not do
